Hello dear funders!
Hi there --
I hope you're all enjoying your end of summer...
I, for one, am still reeling from the wonderful fundraising campaign!! Such excitement!
I wanted to write a quick report about what's happening with The Secret City.
We are gearing up for our fourth season, which means that we're planning the Manhattan Wonderwalk, which will take place on September 11th in NYC (themanhattanwonderwalk.com) AND, we're prepping for our first service of the new season, Sunday, Sept. 26th...our theme will be TRANSFORMATION, AND we'll be in our new home by then. I think we've found a great space, and I'll write more once that's confirmed.
Wanted to tell you a bit about what's been happening with your gracious donations. First off, we'll be able to cover the rent for our new space!! Our new website will launch this weekend!! And, we've recently updated our computer system, which was desperately needed. I'm also meeting with a consultant tomorrow who'll be advising me on building some much-needed infrastructure for our burgeoning organization. Other things in the works are non-profit applications, copyright issues and grant applications. And you are responsible for all of this being able to happen.
We now have a volunteer once a week, and she's going to help me get to the rewards part of the Kickstarter campaign -- so we'll be getting thank yous and collages and prints and other goodies out to you soon. Your patience is most appreciated.
Thanks and all my best,
