This is unbelievable!!
Stretch target reached in 4 days!
Clare and I have been talking on the phone this morning and we simply can't believe what's happened!! We are so grateful and touched, not just by the immense generosity you've shown, but also by the wave of positivity we've experienced - so many people saying what a great idea this is - and that has confirmed to us (after bouts of uncertainty) that this was the right thing to do. Thank you for reassuring us!
"...and the stretch target gets stretchier!" (as my dear sister, Judith pointed out in a text this morning!).
So, just as you thought we'd achieved our target, we moved it... and now we've moved it again! What's going on? Crowdfunder advises that you start with a modest initial target, but they suggest you plan higher 'stretch' targets in the event that you reach your first one. We had no idea where to pitch this. I've now explained on the main Crowdfunder page that my original project (when I tried to get Arts Council funding) was costed at £17,500. We never considered anything like this amount for crowdfunding and were worried that we'd gone over the top with £7,500. Well, you've seen what's happened, and now we're setting our final target at the full £17,500. Whilst that would be great, we are absolutely delighted and amazed at what's been raised and I’m already working on the beginnings of the project with a huge grin inspired by you all.
Thank you so much again!
Faith and Clare
