A bike collective is starting up in a under served area of Detroit at an existing art center to help kids get around.
Soup at Spaulding is a weekly dinner that seeks to get local projects up and running while supporting the rehabilitation of Spaulding Court, a community owned castle complex turned village center.
The $5 from each dinner guest buys soup, salad, delicious bread PLUS a vote for one of three projects that vie for funding. After a few bucks for the chef, the pot is split between the winner and Friends of Spaulding Court. As a way of doubling the impact of the fundraiser, we take our collective fundraising to the next level here at Kickstarter. The winner reports back to Soup at Spaulding in one month, a video update will be posted here.
