Last year’s campaign reached over 1.5 million video views in just over a month and half. This year the anticipated reach is over 1 million views a month and over 6 million total video views.

Speakers consists of over 60 top Catholic speakers from around the United States, including over 10 religious sisters for what they are billing as #NunWeek. Building on last year’s successful grassroots campaign, Redeemed Online attained over 125% of their $18,000 Kickstarter goal with the backing of over 500 donors for this year's campaign.
