It’s Super Bowl XLIX Sunday and Kickstarter backers have decided to chip in and send Jason Cornwell-Wright of Mexico City back to Seattle.

He’s going to blog and take pictures and hang out with other Seahawks fans and his friends.

Risks and challenges: “If you don’t fund Jason on his homecoming project, you may risk the Hawks losing the game. Think about it.”

The single reward for backers are a copy of photos and writing from the journey home. The blog will be published on Tumblr after the Super Bowl. A url has not been created, Wright said.
