We did it!

Dear supporters,

We are overwhelmed by the power of people coming together to support what they believe in. This campaign is truly grass roots at its best. Thank you for believing in See Potential, for making it happen, and for knowing that your pledge could and would make an impact—you all matter!

On January 5th, we reached our initial $10,000 goal, and have since surpassed it! The additional funding will be used to create more installation sites.  We are incredibly excited to get started! Please continue to spread the word about SEE POTENTIAL to your networks.

If you’re in New York: please join us at The Half King at 7:30 on Tuesday January 17th for a celebration of See Potential’s success, and a public conversation between Emily Schiffer and Whitney Johnson, Director of Photography at the New Yorker Magazine.
