The Friends of Euclid Garden
How can I become a friend?
1. Donate $5 of your own money
2. Post about Euclid Garden on your social media
3. Work with 5 friends or family members to donate $5
The campaign will run from Wednesday, November 16, 2016 to
Sunday, November 20, 2016.
The campaign will be launched by Claire F. Stone with a single donation of $1,000.
Tuesday, November 15, 2016 (Night before launch):
Our original goal was raise another $1,000! But on the evening of November 15 and after one week, fifty-seven people have given $2,443 without Claire's $1,000. Do you think we can get to $5,000? Big and small donations are like the seeds in Euclid's Garden.
Thank you for your generosity and your continued interest in our growth & progress.
Wednesday, NOVEMBER 16, 2016 (DAY 1):
Today alone, 40 donors (including myself) have raised $2,175. In the last 7 days, we have gotten 110 donors to donate $4,933. THANK YOU TO ALL! Whenever something goes well for Euclid Garden, Brendan Stone says to me:
"Cool, you still got a lot of work to do though. You know that right?"
Let's see how far we can take Join the Friends of Euclid Garden? Have you talked to five people about Euclid Garden?
Please invite them to our Euclid Garden Community Organizing Meeting on Tuesday, December 6 [6:30PM-7:30PM at El Rio in SF]
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2016 (DAY 2):
Tonight, we complete the evening with 134 new friends (sometimes referred to as donors) and $5,618. We are totally blown away by you. This campaign has taken on a life of it's own. We are deeply grateful to each and every one of you.
Friday, november 18, 2016 (day 3):
It is 10:28PM on Friday night.
We complete the evening with 158 friends and $6,413. Our gratitude to you all, particularly Sara Hoover for her second donation that deliberately sent us soaring into $6,000.
saturday, november 19, 2016 (day 4):
The Friends of Euclid Garden has been an incredible campaign. To think we're less than $300 from $7,000 is shocking to us. We have had $6,733 donated from 170 friends in just 11 days. We are keeping it going until tomorrow at noon.
sunday, november 20, 2016 (final day of the campaign):
Dear Friends of Euclid Garden,
It is with much pride and gratitude we conclude the Friends of Euclid Garden campaign.
Collectively, we have raised $7,070 from 185 of our best friends.
I can assure you that the kids and the staff at Euclid + Project 33rd appreciate your support. Together, you have given us the opportunity to continue our work each weekend.We will be able to eat what we work so hard to grow and sit in peace surrounded by art.
A special thank you to Clint McManus who made a first donation of $100 at the start of the campaign and a second donation of $77 to throw us over the $7,000 line. These donations are in memory of Scott McManus & John Gray.
Euclid House, Project 33rd, the Euclid Garden Team and Claire
UPDATE: November 23, 2016
(Three days after the completion of campaign):
We ended up raising $10,020 with a very kind and large donation from Julia Horiuchi.
We raised over 10,000 in just over two weeks and this is all thanks to the Friends of Euclid Garden!
