I’m trying something new. Later this week we will launch our first ever Kickstarter project. Kickstarter is a crowd-funding platform that basically lets you attempt to raise funds for your idea or project in an ‘all or nothing’ format, with a time limit.
We’ve been thrilled with the activity and influence of the Lighthouse Cafe, and now we turn our attention to our undeveloped outdoor property that is honestly and eye sore. Our town does have 2 other small kids play areas, donated by politicians attempting to gain votes. This would make the third, however it will be connected to the Cafe with outdoor places to sit and drink coffee, eat pizza, and also have a skate area with a half-pipe.
First things first, dreams need backers. So be looking for an opportunity to help the Lighthouse extend its influence and shine outside it’s four walls! The biggest challenge will be spreading the word – and for that we look to you, our loyal prayer and financial supporters – together we can spread this around and raise the project goal of $7,500 which we believe will build something very unique and special for the families in our town.
This past week we had 4 students raking and cleaning the area. We want to order a couple loads of topsoil and plant some grass as a start… It would be cool to raise a large amount with this Kickstarter campaign and do a project that takes only a few weeks instead of months – what a dream that would be!
