UPDATE — March 2018
After a year of organizing to create this novel community micro-funding event, the team that gathered has agreed that we are not yet ready to launch. We had ALMOST enough support to make this event begin. It is clear that we could find food, a location, and applications (all the elements necessary!). . . but lacked the team to do the behind-the-scenes work that would make it function well and repeatedly.
So we are stopping. For some reason, though many voiced support for this type of event, there wasn’t enough actual action to get it going. Perhaps, under other leadership, or at another time, or with some other change . . . this marvelous idea will be able to show our power to step up and make our community better.
We wish you well.
