I asked, “How does this project look?” “We also have some awesome perks, everything from early memberships to live chats with the founder. We even have early bird passes where you can be one of the select few to join us in our soft launch. This means you will be the first to try our platform when it goes live. But if you are just interested in joining us in any way I recommend doing it now. As we are offering super low pricing on all of our awesome perks through this campaign only. And like all good deals, these are limited, and they won’t last long. ” says Ploetz.

Cornucopia’s ‘Green Goddess Crowdfunded €50,000 in 48 Hours

Filed under Crowd Funding, Front Page

This comes from the article Crowdfunding foodies raising lots of dough by Deirdre Reynolds

Many restaurants are now turning their backs on the banks when it comes to seeking finance and using their customers, family and small-time investors to fulfil their food dreams. Retailing at €3.95, Cornucopia’s ‘Green Goddess’ – infused with apple and the ubiquitous avocado – is just one of the trendy cold-pressed juices new to shelves here after the company successfully crowdfunded €50,000 in only 48 hours.

Meanwhile, back at the city centre eatery, eagle-eyed regulars may have noticed the shiny new service counter, also installed no thanks to the banks recently.
“We were in something called Food Works [a business programme run by Bord Bia, Enterprise Ireland and Teagasc] with our juice product and they recommended crowdfunding,” explained Deirdre, who set up the health-food-store-turned-wholefood restaurant with her late husband, Neil, in 1986.

“I had some experience of working with the crowd because when I was turned down for planning permission to turn the building beside us from retail to restaurant. I went to my customers and I got a petition going. Two thousand people signed it [saying], ‘Please give her planning permission’, over a two-week period,” says Deirdre.

Why this is important: When you read the article you can see that she had her tribe lined up. Not only had she successfully rallied them before, they are able to create change. Now, the second time around they are bigger and stronger. That’s why we offer clients a tribe building program before they crowd fund, so that they can get a tribe that will work and put in money.

Crowdfunding for The Pantry

Crowdfunding for The Pantry

The Pantry was founded in 1983 by the Rev. John Spruham, Vicar of St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church. Formerly located at 6501 Belmont, the church closed in 2000, forcing the pantry to relocate to the present site in February 2002. The people of United in Faith have been enthusiastic about this ministry and welcoming and responsive to ecumenical nature of the Church. Founded by an Episcopal congregation, housed in a Lutheran Church, directed by a UCC Pastor, coordinated by an Episcopalian, supported by numerous local Catholic parishes and St. Vincent DePaul Society’s, and dependent upon the outpouring of gifts of food and money from endless church groups, schools and organizations who donate food and dollars as well as volunteer hours.

The area they serve is Chicago. Specifically Chicago zip codes: 60634, 60707 in Chicago (east of Harlem Ave), and 60639. Residents of these areas needing emergency food are eligible to receive food from the pantry once a month. Generally the food they receive is sufficient to last about three days. Your support for this project means a lot.

In addition to providing for the nutritional needs of our customers on a monthly basis, we also:
Provide food for the preparation of Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner
Provide Christmas gifts for children who would not otherwise receive them
Provide Easter baskets for children
Provide warm winter coats
