Our First Crowdfunding Project (Ya There Will Be More)

By Marcie Barnes

We've started a project at the most awesome www.crowdrise.com - where people can post projects or events to benefit charity. And they have a really important tagline: "if you don't give back no one will like you".

Since Spherre, Inc. is technically a for-profit company, you can't give money directly to us, but that's fine because we've designated one of our most favorite charities, Panzou Project, to get the funds. And we're OK with that, since the fantastic ex-gang members at Panzou make us beautiful t-shirts. And if I may, the beautiful Founder of Panzou, Laura, could really use the work for her team. This is a charity that should never, ever, go down in flames.

The crowdfunding page is here: http://www.crowdrise.com/spherre. Please consider skipping a latte, a new pair of shoes, or the new Mercedes in order to help us help Panzou who helps us in return. A win-win all around.

The Panzou Project website is at www.panzouproject.org and they are also on those oh-so-popular sites: www.facebook.com/PanZOuProject and twitter.com/panzouproject

Thanks for your consideration in making the world a better place!
