First, we want to thank everyone for their support and encouragement for our Activate! Lambeth Online crowdfunding campaign. You showed us how much you care, and we’re grateful.
However, we have been informed by our match fund partners that they are no longer sponsoring any crowdfunding campaigns and have re-targeted their funding options. That was a huge shock to us, to say the least, as we were mainly relying on this to help us get started. And so, we have had to stop our crowdfund mid-flow.
In our team meeting we asked, what should we do? Give up? Absolutely not!!! It’s just not how we operate, we know there is a need and we owe it to our community. We don’t stop at no, we just figure out HOW. So for now, we have our creative hats on working out how we are going to make Activate! possible. Every cloud has a silver lining, and we believe everything happens for a reason.
The good news is that anyone that has already donated to help us build this community will be refunded, that was a huge “phew” to us!
Anyway, give us a few days, a week tops and we’ll share our new idea.
Catch up soon!
