Hellllooo dearest friends,
Ahhh...a HUGE update. First off, THANK YOU! We hit the minimum fundraising goal of $2500! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are SO grateful for your contribution and support! <3
Second, the Daruma's face has been fully formed! We're really happy with how the nose bridge turned out. Check out the pictures below! Look at that nose! ^_^
Third, the claycrete is working!! It's strong and binding well to our chicken wire. We're going to be putting a few more layers of papier-mache on before we paint the Daruma, and then sanding everything down to make the surface smooth before we paint it.
Lastly, Hatchfund suggested that we reach out and ask whether your employers have employee matching programs. Since Hatchfund is a 501(c)3 non-profit, they qualify for employee matches! Please let us know if your employer does, and we'll happily get the ball rolling on this. :)
Per usual, we have a Build day coming up this weekend! Please let us know if you're down to swing by and help! Please email email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you all the details. Thank you!!
