I never fancied fundraising because of my general dislike for rejection but somehow this time it doesn't bother me. I'm not sure if that's because the older I get the less I care about being rejected or if I just believe in what I'm doing so much that I refuse to let it bother me - I think it might be a combination of both :)
To seed the program, I've just been investing my own money which of course I'm ok with. Well that money is running dry so I decided to do a Go Fund me and in just 4 days I've raised nearly half of what I need to pay staff, keep the lights on the the doors open and take care of some other administrative costs. This is really happening and I'm so proud of my personal resilience!
Onward and Upward!
