We did it! Thanks to everyone who shared, emailed, donated, pledged, cheered, texted, liked and jumped. I ended up short 5k but thanks to a temporary loan, I’v passed the $15,000 goal on indiegogo! AND behind the scenes BC Housing has offered to contribute the other half of my total goal! I may also be getting another contribution from the city!!! So I’ve come in right on target with the full amount needed – the wall of joy is going up! Jumping for joy!!!!!! — feeling excited.
A massive and heart felt THANK YOU to everyone who contributed!
A very, very special thank you to BC HOUSING who are contributing half the funds needed to create this work. BC Housing will be contributing $15,000 towards the project! Jumping for JOY!
A heart felt thanks to the following group of people who all made generous contributions on Indiegogo (its not too late, you can still ad funds to the pot). Together we raised just over $10,000 towards the wall of joy! Thank You ALL for helping make this mural possible:
