You trusted us with your donations!
And we want to continue to hold that trust in high regard. Today, I spent a significant amount of the day compiling and calculating all of the donations and expenses that Spunkee Monkee has accrued over the last few months. Without further ado, allow me to present the financial summary for our amazing project!
We had a fundraising campaign that ran for the month of January 2019 through Kickstarter. Though we received pledged donations of over $2400 our campaign goals were not met. Before the campaign ended, I contacted all of the donors there and asked if they would consider transferring their donations over to @fundition. Some did, and some didn't. Here is the visual representation of everything that we have received through @fundition as of today.
We are so incredibly thankful for all the support that we received through @fundition's campaign from all of you, and we CONTINUE to receive! @fundition has been a massive encouragement to us through upvotes, education, promotion, and dependable presence in our journey. Thank you to all of you for your faith in this project!
SOME OF OUR BACKERS AND SUPPORTERS
Some donations went directly to the @spunkeemonkee account, and some went directly to the @dreemsteem account. As of today, I've compiled them all for a total of 4201.022 STEEM from @fundition campaign, 75 STEEM transferred directly into @dreemsteem account for the Monkees, and 298.499 STEEM transferred directly into @spunkeemonkee account. The money transferred into @spunkeemonkee is already in there, and therefore will not be calculated into what needs to be transferred from @dreemsteem to @spunkeemonkee. The total donations still needing to be dispersed is 4807.89885 STEEM.
There have been expenses for promotional contests (144.5 STEEM), artwork from @jimramones (614.30688 STEEM) and a small advance on the dev work by @wizearch (290 STEEM) that was paid from the @dreemsteem account that will be reimbursed from the @spunkeemonkee funds before dispersing funds. The total that will be reimbursed is 904.30688 STEEM.
As you can see from the wallet transactions processed earlier today, the remaining steem after reminbursement was sent to @spunkeemonkee as liquid steem to request a delegation lease (385 STEEM), as liquid steem to hold for the Monkee prizes (1600 STEEM), and powered up and delegated to the @spunkeemonkee account.
DELEGATION LEASE REQUEST
This afternoon, @spunkeemonkee placed a lease request for 4 weeks (the duration of the Beta Test) for a 20,000 SP delegation. This delegation will provide upvotes to the Monkees, Monkee Pals, and Monkee staff during the Beta Test run.
The money for the larger prizes will be held in liquid STEEM in the @spunkeemonkee account until the end of the Beta Test. At the completion of the Treasure Hunt, the larger prizes will be purchased through Amazon wish lists for the American Monkees. The STEEM value of the larger prizes will be transferred into the accounts of the Monkees who live outside of the US. Larger prizes will only be awarded to Monkees who have "found" the prizes on the treasure map AND who have successfully completed at least 21 days of the 28 day Treasure Hunt. All smaller prizes found on the map will be released to the Monkees' accounts within 48 hours of "digging up" the treasure.
Thank you once again to everyone who continues to believe in this project! We are on our second day and the Monkees have us in awe over their skill, dedication, intelligence and commitment to grow. We love how we are able to meet each one on their level and encourage them where they are at. The Monkee parents are also amazing - encouraging their kids and having FUN with them! We can't wait until the Treasure Map is revealed in a few days, so they can start using their points to start digging! We think they're going to really enjoy the prizes!!!
Thanks to the permanency of the blockchain, all of the financial records are forever recorded for us. Additionally, everything that was stated in this document can be found on Steemworld.org, steemdetective.com, and @fundition. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me for more information!
