The Last 5 Days!

The Bay Area Maker Faire 2012 was amazing, as usual, and we came home so inspired and ready to get back to work on the OC Mini Maker Faire!   Apparently, we weren't the only ones inspired as we've had a new burst of activity on all of our web media (website, Facebook, Twitter, Google+) and a plethora of new Makers signed up on our Call for Makers app.  We've even had a nice bit of activity here on Kickstarter but, as you can see, we're still not even close.    

Recently, we priced out the equipment that we'll need to rent to provide for our Makers and vendors:  tables, chairs and shady awnings all that alone will cost us about $2,000.    After that we'll still need to get event insurance, barricades, snacks for our wonderful volunteers and a host of other boring bits that are needed behind the scenes to bring you an awesome event.    

So, it would be much appreciated if you would let all your friends and family know about this Kickstarter campaign and get them to donate a few bucks.   We've got 5 days of opportunity left, help us make a terrific event!   

To those who have already donated, thank you! Thank you!  Your generosity is greatly appreciated and we can't wait to see you at the OC Mini Maker Faire where you can Discover the Maker in Yourself!

Sincerely,

Bequi Howarth
