US$682.00raised of $440.00 goal goal
Promare has gained popularity and fans worldwide and now they are hosting a Live concert!
To congratulate the Promare staff and show our support we want to send a flower stand to be displayed at the Nakano Sun Plaza in Tokyo, Japan, at the Lunch and Night performances on January 18th.
What is a flower stand?
Flower stands are a staple at any Japanese event. Anyone can send a flower stand to congratulate, thank, or show support for the event and there is usually a designated area dedicated to showcasing the beautiful displays that people send in!
Flower stands cost anywhere from ¥10,000 (about $100 USD) for a simple flower arrangement to over ¥100,000 ($1000 USD) for huge displays complete with custom panels, balloons, ribbons, LED lights, you name it!
(Here's an example taken by Minty at the IDOLiSH7 concert this past summer.)
The lovely Denki (@denkimouse) has been kind enough to be the point of contact with the flower shop and has made this project truly possible, I couldn't thank them enough! The sweet Minty (@mintyhoneyy) has offered to help design our panels! I'm excited to work with them to get this project realized!
What will the stand look like?
The stand we have planned is Burnish flame color themed with a panel on top that says "Stay with Me" with artwork of Galo and Lio together and a bottom panel including the names of contributors.
The current stand shape is a standard flower panel shape, but if we can reach our stretch goal of $640, we can request for the stand to be in the shape of a heart!
What happens if the project isn't fully funded before the deadline? What if it gets overfunded?
Our current goal is to make $440 as this covers the cost of the stand, panels, and shipping+tax.
If the project doesn't get fully funded, any remaining cost is coming out of my own pocket! The order is already placed with the flower shop and no matter what I want to send a stand to congratulate the artists at the live. 100% of donations will go towards the stand. Any extra funding will go towards adding more flowers/balloons/panels or towards any fees.
Do note that processing and fundraising fees will be automatically deducted from the amount that you donate. And of course, any amount you decide to donate is greatly appreciated!!
