UPDATE: As of 12:14PM today, we have raised a total of $4,079 to go toward building Chicago’s first yard sharing network! Thank you to everyone who helped us meet our goal! We cannot explain how excited we are to make this network happen and there is no way we could have done it without your support!
The fundraising window is still open through Friday at 10:42 AM CDT. All donations above the $4,000 mark will go toward making our gardens even more fun, inclusive, and community centered! See our update about this on our Kickstarter page here. The original post continues below.
Dear Solutionary community,
We’re in the final push of our Kickstarter Campaign to start an urban yard sharing network in Chicago and need your help to make it happen! With only 60 hours to go, we need to raise $716 to meet our goal of $4,000 or we lose all of the donations pledged.
Earlier today, we received a message that an anonymous angel donor has offered to match all donations made between noon today and noon on Thursday dollar for dollar up to the $4,000 goal mark. By donating right now, you make sure that your money goes TWICE as far as it would on its own!
To give you an idea of what that might look like, here is a picture of two baby chicks that hatched in our Children’s Garden this Memorial Day. Would you want to have one without the other?
