Crowdfunding Our First Location

That’s right everyone, we’re in the home stretch and it’s time to finish this thing! Starting today, we’re beginning our online crowdfunding campaign to raise the final $50,000 needed to open our first location of Hugs Cafe!

Some of you may be asking yourself, what is crowdfunding?  Essentially we’re creating an online fundraising campaign to help us raise the money we need.  This allows us to reach everyone worldwide so they too can become a part of the Hugs movement.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Click here to go to visit our campaign page or copy and paste this link into your web browser. https://www.crowdrise.com/ourfirstlocation.
  3. Enter the dollar amount you’re comfortable with and follow the instructions just like an online purchase.
  4. Share the link with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter.


It’s that easy!

How much should you donate?

Great question!  Any amount will help us get to our final goal, but we did the math and realized that if all of our fans on Facebook donate $25 we will hit $50,000! Now, if you feel compelled do donate more than that, we’re OK with that too 🙂

If all of our fans on Facebook donate $25 we will hit $50,000!

Your support of Hugs Cafe so far has been nothing short of inspirational.  The outpouring of love and enthusiasm we feel keeps us moving along, even when the going gets tough.  We’re asking you to help us one more time so we can finally open and begin impacting the community.

In case you needed another incentive, when we hit $50,000 Ruth is going to dye her hair green.  When we hit $75,000 she’s going to dye her hair green AND blue!  And who doesn’t want to see this!?

Together, we can do this!  Together, we’re going to do this.

Thank you!
