The Campaign Continues

cam·paign noun \kam-ˈpān\
: a series of activities designed to produce a particular result

It’s no surprise that fundraising initiatives are often called campaigns.  The purpose of our C3 Raise the Roof Campaign is to raise sufficient funds to cover the expense of relocation.  No single event – not even the Make Art, Not Waste Bohemian Bash – is enough all by itself to open the door to a new home for C3.  While we are pleased that the Bash was such a resounding success, there is more work to do!  Before providing details on what’s next, here are a few numbers from the Bash:

  • 45 event volunteers
  • 175 event attendees
  • More than $10,000.00 of in-kind donations of goods and services
  • More than $3,000.00 net profit

Needless to say, we are thrilled with the outcome! If you’d like more Bash news including fun photos, visit our blog.

That being said, the reality we face is that we  must be out of our current space on 30 September.  The need for funding is acute!   So what’s next?  I’m glad you asked, because we need your support now more than ever.  As always, we want to put some “fun” into “fun”draising.  Here are our next steps:

Great time to get a deal! #WhyPayRetail

WE NEED TO MOVE INVENTORY!  Thanks to the Barter Business Exchange, Inc., “fire sale” gift certificates are available for purchase at C3.  This is a great way to stock up on a wide variety of materials and help lighten the load!

WE NEED COMMITTEE MEMBERS!  The Rockin’ Reuse Raffle at Coglin’s, 226 Fayetteville Street, DTR,  is right around the corner on 9-14-14!  Help make it happen!  We especially need people savvy with SEO, B2B, and PR.  Shoot an email to if you’re interested.


Yes, there is some heavy lifting ahead!  We hope that you will roll up your sleeves and show your continued support of C3 and our mission to reduce waste and promote creative expression.  For many, that could be taking advantage of some great sales.  For others, that could be the opportunity to work on a collaborative event committee.  For some, that could mean a generous financial contribution.  Whoever the giver and whatever the gift, your contribution to the C3 Raise the Roof Campaign demonstrates the value that C3 brings to our community.

Let’s not stop until we celebrate our grand opening!

At the risk of sounding like public radio, C3 has an opportunity to have financial donations matched dollar for dollar up to $2,500 thanks to the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation and All at Once.  We don’t want to leave any of this funding on the table!  We have raised just a little over $2,00.00 to date, so that leaves another $500.00 to raise BY THE END OF THE MONTH!  Click here to support C3 with your tax-deductible gift of $25, $50, or $100 today!
