Update #3

Ring Our Bell, We'll Ring You Back

Comment

Greetings from Street Books Headquarters, and big thanks to everyone who has donated money to our campaign. It's been an amazing response so far, and we are very optimistic that with your help, our project will be funded. Over the past couple of weeks, we've had several  different friends ask, "Where's your $50 donation level?" We weren't aware that that's a sweet spot, but they assure us it is, and we are  willing to give it a try. So please spread the word that we've got a magical new $50 mark now, and feel free to "upgrade" if you felt cheated at the $25 level, (heh). We are offering a personal phone call of thanks from a Street Books librarian for the $50 level, so we hope to talk with you or your friends soon.  Most of all, we want to thank you so much for being willing to get behind our street library, one that will be out on the streets of Portland this fall and winter, offering books to people who live outside.
