Oh my goodness!
We’re at 87% with NINE hours to go! Wha hooooo!
Thank you to everyone who has donated and shared the indiegogo link — we’re floored and overwhelmed with gratitude… And excitement! It feels like watching a race — we’re at the heart thumping and nail biting and yelling stage.
(Which of course makes me think of My Fair Lady.)
But even if our horse doesn’t come in, we’ve still loved this ride. Thank you, thank you!
Now c’mon, Dovah! Move yer bloomin’ arse!
As of writing this, there are 32 hours left on our indiegogo campaign — we’re at 83%! We “only” need $5004, which is A LOT of money, but considering how generous people have been, we feel very lucky indeed. VERY lucky.
But we would still love to get to the goal or as close to it as possible — if we don’t make it, there are penalties on top of the other fees. Which is expected and no matter what, we’ll still be able to do a lot of fun things for the store. Some things might have to wait, but it’s okay. We just want to open the doors and sell books!
But since there is just over 24 hours left, we’re doing this last push, just to try to raise as much as we can. And if you can, please donate to keep an independent bookstore open in Vallejo! (Here’s that link again.)
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
It seems incredible, but in nine days we get the keys to the bookstore, and our lives are going to change completely (again). We’re excited and nervous and thrilled and scared and many emotions in between.
One of those emotions is grateful. We have five days to go on our indiegogo campaign, and though we may not make it, we’re so thankful to have come so close, and to everyone for their generosity and faith in us. It’s humbling… And motivating.
And we’re motivated to get as close as we possibly can, so today I have a special offer: anyone who donates over $10 today will be entered into a raffle to win a $50 gift certificate to the store when we open June 1st! You don’t even have to be local to win — I can send you books!
The link is here. Feel free to share far and wide! We’ll announce the winner tomorrow morning.
Thank you for all your support… I’m looking forward to fun dispatches from “The Alibi”! (You can already find us on Instagram: @alibibookshop and Facebook.)
