The fundraising platform Kickstarter has helped many people and organizations raise money for ambitious, lofty goals and big, meaningful projects.
But all Noboru Bitoy wanted was enough money to buy a Chipotle burrito. The graphic design student launched a Kickstarter campaign to fundraise money to buy a burrito, with a goal of raising $8. Within 24 hours, he had raised 400% that amount, thanks to contributors who wanted to help him realize his goal.
As donations came pouring in, he updated his original goal of creating what he calls a “Deliciousness Graphic” to included details on how Chipotle burritos taste under various conditions.
He detailed them as follows:
For $50, he pledges to consume four chicken burritos, one prepared fresh, and the others stored away and eaten on the following consecutive days as a “test to truly see how the burrito flavor is changed when it is a leftover meal.”
For $175, he plans to consume 24 variations of the chicken burrito, each with different ingredients and salsa types.
And as his last goal, he wants to find out how delicious a Chipotle burrito would taste if he consumed it
“plummeting from the heavens.” In other words, for $500 pledged, he will eat a burrito while skydiving.
What started off as a simple wish has turned into something that may very well make burrito-consumption history.
