Edible York Express - Abundance
Dear Supporters of Edible York -
Abundance is pitching for Crowd Funding to raise £4814 to buy juicing* and picking equipment and a storage container to act as Apple HQ.
If we all donated £5 we would be 25% of the way there. If we all got one friend to donate a fiver as well, we would be half way there and in a really strong position to approach sympathetic businesses for match-funding – and then we would have done it!
So, here’s what we would like you to do -
- Sign up to spacehive.com https://www.spacehive.com/Edible-York and pledge a fiver
- Log on to Facebook and Twitter if you have such things, and share Edible York’s Abundance video, Facebook posts and tweets.
- Tell all your friends what a great thing we are doing, to use the abundance of fresh fruit in York every autumn
P.S. the minimum donation is £2, but almost as valuable is logging on to Spacehive to tell the world how fabulous our project is. Why? It shows crowd enthusiasm, and people really do like to back something popular.
We are not just asking you - we are asking for Ward funding, we are asking local organisations, we are pitching to local businesses. We can do this, and there are real benefits to York in doing it. Abundance is one of the initiatives that makes a real positive difference in our city.
* Sadly, due to over-use of our faithful juice-press last year, it has passed on to juice-heaven. We are aiming to buy a much sturdier model that we can loan out to community groups so even more people can get involved in using York’s apple harvest. We already have one interested party. Are you interested too? Then tell us on Spacehive because that will help enthuse people.
