Maker Support Fund
This is something I never thought I would have to ask...
Our community needs your help.
My heart is exploding with pride watching how Ottawa is showing up to support local during the covid19 business stoppage. Your support means a lot of these local businesses, restaurants + makers will be here when we're on the other side of this.
We want to be here, ready to go when its time and we want to be able to offer our makers the opportunity to connect with you IRL once again. But we know that because money might be tight, they might struggle to afford it.
Thats why we are starting a maker fund that will not only help us get through this so that we are here for them, but also to offer our community members who were the hardest hit the opportunity they need to get back on their feet. We have been sent so many messages from makers looking for help, guidance, support as they try to pivot to find ways to stay afloat. Every message my heart breaks a little bit more knowing that our community is hurting.
SPONSOR A MAKER (Every $100 means a maker gets an opportunity)
Every contributor will go into a draw to win a $250 shopping spree to our first market post-covid19, and will also receive complimentary entry.
All contributors of $50 will go onto a wall of gratitude at our first market post-covid19.
Should there be a specific maker you would like to sponsor from our community, please put in the notes.
