From the 25th of September to the 25th of October, we hosted a crowdfunding campaign (via www.iFundWomen.com) to raise $15k to invest in a candy wrapping machine. We’re strong believers in the power of community, which is why we are chose this method of community-powered funding! We’ve only grown this far because our community believed it could.
Thank you to all who have contributed to make this dream a reality!
We will look forward to the next steps of investing in a wrapping machine and the many benefits it will present to our business.
A special thank you to Cox Communications; with their funding this spring from the Get Started Pitch Competition, we were able to invest in a larger batch candy cooker and with their team, we produced our campaign video. Thank you to our corporate sponsors, Agape Red and Slate Architecture, who each contributed $2500 to make our campaign a success. Thank you to Ted & Wally's Ice Cream, who are contributing all sales from quarts of their delicious ice cream from the month of October to our campaign! Thank you to Bomb De Fleur and EarthenJoy, for hosting giveaways to boost excitement during the campaign!
And a HUGE thank you to the Snowshoe Squad - a team of amazing individuals who have supported Snowshoe Candy Co. throughout the years, and who helped me spread the word, make connections and meet our funding goal:
