The Last Hurrah!
You guys did it again last night; coming up with another banner evening of contributions which topped the day before, reaching $3,575.00 and making the over all total $27,638.00… with one day left in this project.
Later today, I’ll be posting “By The Numbers 4.0” so everyone can see the stats up to now, but I’d like to share a few right now.
The first CF we did to help pay the costs and defeat the financing interest of building the permanent patio at Brooklyn came in at $23,200, which was 77.3% of the $30,000 goal. 116 people contributed to that campaign; all receiving a “return” on their investment in the form of just rewards from The BrooklynWarehouse.
Our second CF helped refurbish our kitchen at the Warehouse, allowing us to buy new equipment, resurface all the walls and install non-slip flooring; all meant to create a safe and functional environment for Mark and his team to produce the award winning food we’ve become known for. This project garnered $14,195 in contributions from 83 backers. The goal was to raise $28,000 in the 28 days of February. We raised 50.7% of that goal. And every last bit of it went a long way in making that kitchen reno happen.
Now on this final day of this Crowdfund, we sit at $27,638… oh, look… it just went up again… now at $27,888 toward the goal of $50K. That’s 55.8% of the way.
So, we’ve already beaten the record set by the Patio CF and the Kitchen Party CF in terms of cash contributions set and the rewards to be handed out; but we still have one last day, less than 15 hours really, to beat the odds and get the percentage up there to meet or beat 77.3%.
To put that into perspective; in the three crowdfunding projects we’ve run, we have raised over $65,000 to date. In fact, when we ran the first one… we kind’a introduced Crowdfunding to the region; it did make a big impression.
That’s $65,000 in rewards to all those contributors who enjoyed their return in awesome food and good times… some which continue to do so, based on the tier they purchased.
So, how do we make a big story out of this event? How do you share in those rewards on this final day?
That’s the challenge for today… your challenge!
How many of you are reading this right now and thinking it might be a good idea to join, and by doing so reward yourself, but also make a big difference in driving that percentage up, and up, and up.
NOW, truly is the time to take advantage of the tiers available. NOW is the time to Join The Crowd.
