Cookies spelling out the words Thank You!

Dear Community,

Thank you so much for all of your support over the past 30 days (and the past 2 and a half years)!

Thursday night at midnight our Indiegogo fundraising campaign ended, and we met our goal!! We have raised over $10,280 (including a few cash/check donations that are not included on the indiegogo page total). And, 80% of the contributions were $50 or less.

We are in awe of your generosity, and so proud of all of the many ways that folks came out to support this effort.

We’re moving forward with our work for the fall, and we’ll keep you updated about our plans. Next Saturday (9/29), we’ll be at the NC Pride Festival on Duke’s East Campus with rainbow NC cookies, cupcakes, foccacia and granola.

Also, we know that some people are still interested in donating – we’ll still graciously accept any donations you want to give. You can contribute online at https://www.wepay.com/donations/bread-uprising-fall-2012-expansion-fund

We’re also planning a celebration and thank-you card making party in the next 2 weeks – let us know if you’d like to attend!

For those of you who donated, your cookies, ‘zines, magnets & stencils will be in the mail in the next few weeks. And again, thank you!!!

Love,
The Bread Uprising bakers and fundraising team
