Crowdfunding – We’re Doin’ It!
If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you got the good news yesterday – we’re officially starting our crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo! SUPER EXCITING!
And for us, it means the opportunity to raise funds for a new delivery vehicle… which we desperately need.
Our current ride is getting on in age and mileage – it’s been a great little car for our little business… but now we’re becoming a big business! Well, maybe not big, but at least medium. Big enough that we can’t fit some of orders in comfortably, anyway. We also really don’t want to worry about a break down or maintenance because we want remain a reliable company.
So, yeah, we need a new car. We have one picked out and everything – a used Honda Element would be perfect for us. The thing is, we can’t really afford one on our own… which is why we’ve decided to try crowdfunding!
Here’s how it works: people donate to our fundraiser and they receive a gift – each gift is categorized by donation amount. It’s a fun way to say “thank you” for contributing to the building of our business and also a way to give something to our supporters that no one else has – VIP swag, if you will! With crowd-funding, no pledge is too small (we start out at $1) because the idea is to reach as many people as possible, with small amounts adding up over time from the sharing of our campaign.
We would be honored if you would have a look at our campaign page, pledge if you’d like to support, and most importantly share this on whatever social network you’re using. We have lots of fun gifts for donors and we’ll be keeping everyone updated on our progress and experiences throughout this new adventure!
