Just because the goal is achieved doesn't mean more support won't help, give til it hurts! Seriously, you can still grab cool benefits and swag and the like and also help them achieve their stretch goals...
Ok, I doubt anyone watching me who loved City of Heroes doesn't also watch the :iconCityofHeroes: group so you should have already seen this... But just in case:
