Well kids, it's crunch time over here at The About Face Collective! After receiving $75,000 from Live Green Toronto towards the creation of our proposed Recycle Art Rooftop Garden at the new Centre for Social Innovation Annex, we've been working hard to garner the remaining $75,000 to get this venture off the ground by December 31st of this year!
Where we're at right now: We've got our fingers crossed on a couple of ongoing grants, and we're one of the top contestants on the ClimateSpark.ca challenge, and we're gearing up to create an Indigogo.com campaign.
We're also partnering up with FreshCityFarms to host a fundraiser at their greenhouse at Downsview Park, and will be hosting a collaborative visioning session with the folks at Exhibit Change for CSI members and potential collaborators and funders.
Despite all this, we STILL need your help! Write about us! Blog about us! Tweet about us! Spread the word about this very special and multi-faceted project! Your support and encouragement will help us generate the social capital we need to make this project a reality!
Your support (and your tweets) means the world to us. It may even land you a can of Ontario peaches from Natalie, wink wink, nudge nudge...
Get in touch with us if you'd like to see our press release!
Let's keep Toronto on track towards sustainability!
