Your next donation just got matched!
As you can probably imagine, our total costs are not fully covered by the kickstarter minimum we set at the start. We will have costs well above the $14,500 minimum. Anything we raise above that minimum is guaranteed to be put to work effectively to help make this the best possible parklet for you.
So, this latest update comes as very welcome and awesome news:
A few minutes ago, I spoke with a very enthusiastic new backer. Seth Hamalian has agreed to donate $1000 in matching funds for any new kickstarter donations made now through Sunday. Basically, he’s promising to match any new pledges, dollar-for-dollar, up to $1000 – for a combined total of $2000.
If you’ve already donated, thank you so much for your support and for spreading the word! Of course, you're certainly welcome to increase your pledge if you want to take advantage of the match. But if you've not yet donated, or if you know of a friend or neighbor who is still on the fence -- now is the time!
It feels great to be nearing the fundraising finish line in such great shape and with so much momentum, and with so many partners and backers lined up in support. We really can't thank all of you enough. It's pretty overwhelming to see so much support from all of our amazing neighbors and friends.
I hope to see you all on Sunday to celebrate!
