Thank you! The Sapling is going to be incredible, and it's all thanks to you!
2 WEEKS AGO
So if you are following us on social media, you will have noticed that today, The Sapling cleared 100%!!! We are at 103%, to be precise, and we are over the moon, not to mention so grateful that you all saw what we were trying to do and got behind it: and put your money where your mouths were! Thank you!!
What we will do with more (Not to be greedy or anything)...
So if you had intended to give but hadn't had the funds yet, and think maybe there's no point anymore, please don't be forlorn: we definitely still need your support.
With any further funds raised we are planning to get professional advice from a lawyer, and an accountant, about how to become a proper company. First we will talk to an accountant about how to run our accounts right, then we want to talk to a lawyer about how to set ourselves up to be a charitable trust. We want to be sustainable, and that will be a very good start. Our initial estimate for a lawyers fee is around $2000 - it may be more, or less, depending on who we use.
And of course, any extra funds will go to help us keep on paying our contributor fees into the future.
So if you keep on boosting our campaign, we will be forever grateful (and also a very clear legal entity)!
We love you all, and thanks again for getting us to our target in just 9 days!
