Bring someone online through Verbal (new rewards)

Since we launched VERBAL just over 10 days ago, two of the most frequently asked questions were these:

1.- Why do you offer me a VERBAL subscription as a reward for backing the project if I already have Internet access?
2.- Will there be a charge for using VERBAL?

Both questions, which are absolutely legitimate and have received due responses on the FAQs section of our campaign, gave us the chance to redesign the reward set in order to make justice to the reason why we chose Kickstarter in the first place.

And so (thanks to Carlos and Rafael) we thought it was important to reframe VERBAL through that which it offers, namely, to enable someone that never had the chance to connect to the Internet (with all the benefits that it affords) to do so thanks to his voice.

So we reached this moment when, thanks to your pledge for VERBAL, you can gift a subscription for a year to one (or many) currently “unconnected” people, a sort of BRING SOMEONE ONLINE THROUGH VERBAL, in exchange of these cool gifts:

With that said, these are the new rewards that we have added to the previous ones (so that you, as a backer, could use the platform or develop apps for it), now based on the idea that you connect to the Internet one or many people that never had the chance to be online:

We hope that this new reward set and objective for you, as a backer of the project, satisfy you much more than what we had previously. Most of all, because what we offer in exchange (t-shirt and wristband) is really cool, but helping someone without an Internet connection is even cooler.
