Today we made it! Our campaign will be funded now that we met our minimum $25k goal! THANK YOU so much. I cannot express to you how grateful and humbled I am for your support.
Now that we've made it, we have two more days to go to increase the funding.
Please keep spreading the word and increase your pledge if you are able. In return, we will bring jobs to the Oregon coast, a destination for food tourists, and a longstanding business for Oregon and the Northwest to be proud of.
Thank you so much,
Below is a short video message from Chef Gregory Gourdet of Departure Restaurant & Lounge in Portland, OR.
Thank you all VERY much for your support thus far. We've come a long way, but we still have nearly $9000 to go in 9 and 1/2 days! That's $1k a day for the next nine days. I'd really appreciate you all sharing this link with your friends and family:
A personal email to people is usually better than a blind copy (forwarded) email, with an explanation of why you like this project. Every bit counts.
Let's make this happen, and create jobs in the Northwest, and a product for America to be proud of during this holiday week.
A quick note to let you know that today we passed half way point to our goal! Thank you so much for all of your support thus far. We must reach out further.
Please, share this link with your friends and family.
A couple of hightlights:
- First company in Oregon Since Lewis & Clark to harvest salt
- Creating jobs in a time and place where they are really needed
- Making each and every one of your meals just a bit tastier :)
Let me know if you have any questions - I'm always here. Thanks for your continued support.
