Hi everybody,

With just four days left of the campaign, we thought you might like to know a bit more about Glimpse, the group behind this project.

We're a voluntary collective from London, and we're running the cats project in our evenings and weekends. Most of us work in advertising, design, with a few at charities. 

We came up with the idea for the cats project on a Saturday afternoon earlier this year. We sat around drinking coffee and talking, trying to imagine a world where people valued experiences and friendships more than shopping. 

After a while, we had the idea of a crowdfunding campaign to replace adverts on the tube. And once we'd decided on that, the tiny little cats just popped into our head.

Of course we love cats, but this is just as much about the 'citizens' part - we want to be treated as active citizens, not just passive consumers and shoppers. It might seem strange that some of us work in advertising. But we want to change things, too.

We hope you're having as much fun being part of this project as we did dreaming it up. Who knows what will happen in the next few days, but this has been an incredible  experience for us all, and it feels like we've connected with people all over the world.

Please keep sending your messages of support - they mean a lot to us. And thanks for being part... of team CATS!

Matt, Lauren, Daria, James, Lawrie, Nick, Iris, Olly, Alex and the rest of team Glimpse.
