Jose Andres, Rob Wilder and the ThinkFood Group have just pledged $5000 towards our kitchen. They have also tweeted to their 31,000 followers asking for each person to donate $10 each. Thank you so much for this support!!! We are confident now that with continued updates and outreach this afternoon we can achieve our goal. Please help us get the word out that we have these wonderful new backers and that we only have $13,000 left to raise!
If they can do it, you can do it! Thank you!
This afternoon our harvesters got to eat the fruits of their labor. Again, the pictures tell the story better than words.
We have only 4 hours to go. If you know anyone who might be able to make a large donation, please contact them. We can still make our goal!! So many of you have doubled your donation today and we have so many new pledges. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support.
The carrot harvest this morning was WONDERFUL! The video and photos below tell the whole story. We will update you later about how they taste.
Thank you so much for the outpouring of support we have received today. Please continue to help us reach our goal by 6 pm tonight. If you are on twitter, please send out our link throughout the day. We still have $22,000 to raise by 6 pm, and until our deadline has passed we are asking everyone to keep spreading the word to help us get there.
We have about 24 hours left to meet our goal. We are a little over 50% funded, and are still hopeful we will get there. If you are able to double your donation, this is the time to do it. If you are not able to double it . . . or if you already have, we are asking you to find someone who can match your donation. If everyone does this, we will build our kitchen this summer!
Our students held a campaign to raise funds from their piggy banks for the kitchen construction . . . and look at how much they raised! $260! Thank you so much for your support in helping their dream of a teaching kitchen come true.
