We have been amazed and humbled by all the generous donations and offers of support and advice. We want to leave this Crowdfunder open until Friday 11th October as some folk were keen to donate after Pay-day and we will be fundraising throughout the period of the AUOB March in Edinburgh on Oct 5th.
We have met to plan our working strategy based on our current resources. Here's a summary of what we want to achieve initially:
The 'Socialite' campaign to put motion graphics showing the wealth of Scotland's natural resources in 21 pubs across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling.
We will focus on Billboard posters in 6 locations across the central belt.
We will be identifying twelve groups to work with on local campaigns with match funding up to £500 each
We are looking for strategies to bring in funding on a regular basis to extend the aims, scope and geographic spread of future campaigns.
We hardly have time to breath, let alone get on with our lives. Having raised the target once, to £8000, we smashed past that and had to raise it again, this time to £12,000. Here we are, about 48 hours after we started the crowdfunder, almost at that figure. Believe me, please, that the money will be put to good use and some of you will start to see the fruits of your contributions very soon. This campaign will, of course, be ongoing by its very nature and your support is hugely appreciated. If you get a chance, have a listen to Davie Hooks' interview on IndyLive radio. See you all at AUOB Edinburgh
