Local News: Get a ‘kick’ outta this!

Pacific Sun to launch Kickstarter campaign

by Bob Heinen

Support our Kickstarter campaign! This week we launch a campaign to raise funds to develop a Best of Marin mobile app. Since 1963, the Pacific Sun has brought you free, quality journalism—features and content like Best of Marin. We’ve always relied on the generosity and support of our local Marin readers and advertisers to make this happen each week, and we ask you to join us once again in helping our new Kickstarter campaign reach its goal.

With a Best of Marin mobile app, you will be able to vote for your favorite sustainable restaurant, best caterer, best children’s clothing store or favorite hiking trail. With the touch of your fingers, this information will be seconds away.

The Best of Marin is a valued reader’s survey that gives Marin the best of the best. This is a great county that we live in, and the Pacific Sun wants our community to be able to nominate and suggest great businesses and ideas for the Best of Marin. A Best of Marin app simplifies the voting process. If you are out and enjoying a great meal with friends, you can support the establishment by nominating it or voting for it. The Best of Marin mobile app will also help you find these great places.

To build this mobile app, additional resources are needed. The Pacific Sun is launching new initiatives for 2015 and the mobile app is an important first step. Our goal is to continue to innovate and provide the best locally produced stories about Marin and to give our readers instant access to them. As more of us move to our mobile devices for daily needs, the Best of Marin mobile app will make this happen. You will be able to access information 24/7, and it will be ready at your fingertips.

The funds we raise will be used to build the mobile app and create a Best of Marin homepage on our new PacificSun.com website. Our Best of Marin homepage will be managed by our editorial staff and contain vital information, as well as photos and reviews. To keep this information free to our community, we ask you to join us today and contribute to the Best of Marin Kickstarter campaign.

To support our Kickstarter campaign, go to www.kickstarter.com and search “Best of Marin mobile app.”

All of us at the Pacific Sun thank you for being part of our creative team and wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
