Class Action Mosaic Inspiration

Posted by Banging Gavel Brews (Creator)

If 200 of our followers backed us with $100 for the Class Action Mosaic, that would bring our total to $33,000 (3K over to guarantee that we have success!) Help us get there. If we go over $30,000, we will add another special reward for every donor of $100 or more. Thank you for the support!

*Rewards only provided if we hit our $30,000 goal.
