Week 355 – Launching Our Crowdfunder

Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.

And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

The Big Move

WE’RE MOVING TO THE TAPESTRY OVER THE EASTER WEEKEND!

Lots of progress and lots that we still need your help with!

The networking is almost finished – Mike and JR have been working tirelessly to flood the space with Cat6 cables, and the Internet feed is in (although not connected up yet).  The building work will all be finished this week, with most of the walls already up and just a few still needing sanding before they’re ready to be painted.

There were a bunch of us in over the weekend painting, with good progress made on the meeting room and one side of the main space.  Still the workshop rooms and the wall between the events room and Room 29 co-working to do.

We are vacating Gostins over the Easter weekend, so we need as many hands as we can get to help with everything that needs doing.

There will be people painting and prepping things at the Tapestry every evening this week, and there’ll be all manner of moving, painting and help needed on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Let Jackie know what your availability is, or just turn up at The Tapestry any time after 10am any of the days over the weekend, or drop us a line at hello@doesliverpool.com.

There are lots of things to do, both with the move and in preparation for the move. If you want to help out, check the DoES Move The Tapestry label on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.

Our Crowdfunder Campaign

To help pay for all the costs of the move we’re running a Crowdfunder campaign.  We need your money and, more importantly, your help in getting word out about it.

We’ve got off to a good start and have hit 60% of our target already!  There are three weeks left to run, but we’ll be entering the mid-campaign lull and so need to keep making noise about it and reaching out beyond the immediate community.

Please share it with people you know, email them, tweet about it, post on Facebook or Instagram… it all helps, even if you think you don’t know many people, you’ll know different people.  Plus if you tag the DoES Liverpool accounts in any of your social media posts it lets DoES and others share your post too, so giving us more impact than if you just copy one of the DoES posts.

So, get as many people as possible too visit http://bit.ly/DoEpicFunding!
