We are really excited to announce that we are live on Kickstarter.com. Kickstarter is a really cool website where projects and groups like us can obtain outside funding. We have a determined goal of raising $5,000 in the next 31 days to expand and develop our new space. We are growing and it is time to expand. But we really need your help for the initial up front costs of this task. Your money will go towards paint, lumber, flooring, drywall, and even nails and screws. It will help us build mobile tables and electronics benches. It will help us expand our craft area and create more classrooms. It will give us the raw materials to physically build our vision of a better community for all.
Kickstarter is a pledge based system which means you don’t get charged until we have actually met our funding goal. So when we meet our funding goal on April 4th that is when your donation goes through. You have time to save up!
One great part about Kickstarter is that we can give back to you when you donate. For example, a $50 donation means an i3 Detroit Tshirt, button, sticker, card and a Free class. How awesome is that?! The community has been such a great supporter of i3 and we want you to know just how much it means to have your continued support.
The best part about all of this is that you can watch where your donation goes. In fact, you can even come pick up a hammer and build with those supplies that you helped us buy. We are ready for i3 Detroit v2.0. Are you?
