title: Thanks to all who made Little Brother a success
Huge thanks to the 58 backers who helped us reach and exceed our goal for our Little Brother vs. Big Brother campaign. Thanks to their support, we’ll be translating Cory Doctorow‘s Little Brother into four Burmese languages.
We used Kickstarter to run the campaign and we’re extremely happy with the results. Kickstarter is a funding platform that includes rewards for people who back the project, a way to send frequent updates, and an all-or-nothing deadline that encourages people to contribute in order to guarantee a project’s success.
We are so grateful to our backers! Thanks for making the project a success.
