Thank you again everyone for making this real!!
Please note the new video in UPDATE #8, documenting the next step in this process: involving a worker.
We would like to continue collecting pledges. If we could we make it to $27,500 that would cover the costs of:
1. A 16-week cooperative development course. Knowledge building, team-building, and equalizing— that's what this crash course could do.
2. Removal of the exterior signage from the store's site.
3. The hiring of an architect to precisely measure out the space, draw plans, and detail the layout of the store.
4. The hiring of an accountant to do payroll and quarterly taxes.
The full fundraising effort (see the business plan) requires more than a quarter of a million dollars, so... we're not turning down supporters yet!!
Thank you all for all the thought, hard work, scheming, strategizing, spamming, sharing, and sending that you all did; it worked! NOBODY DID THIS BUT US.
