Hello 89 Backers! You did it!
Because of you, the funding is now in place for Hygienic Dress League to complete the "No Vacancy" installation on the Roosevelt Hotel in Detroit. High fives all around!
Installation of the billboard is now well underway. Check out the attached pics from today (more documentation to come throughout the process, as well as an invitation to the official opening). The frame is in place, the tiles with graphics will be up soon, and the solar panels and batteries will be up next week now that there's funding to buy and set them up.
Apologies for the outdated email from this summer's Big Inch Block Party that got sent out when your LOVELAND accounts were made this evening. That was a glitch in the matrix. But! The moral of that glitch remains: if you go to http://makeloveland.com/login and put your email address in the "first time here?" box you'll be able to log into your inches in the growing microhood. :-)
We're building out this system for entertainment fundraising and social ownership projects in Detroit where people from around the world can drop dollars in the machine to be a part of great things happening in the city, over the network or in person. Engage as much or as little as you like, and definitely feel free to send us feedback on your experience or ideas on how we can improve. It's an open-minded project with a lot of possibilities for where it can go, and we love to constantly evolve it.
Rewards will be packaged and mailed as soon as we can, so send us your address through the Kickstarter form if you've got something coming.
Many thanks and much love from Detroit,
