In March 2021 Open Barbers will be 10 years old! To celebrate, we’re cooking up a bunch of exciting and fun online events for you to enjoy with us, and help ease those lockdown blues! Watch this space!
We’re combining our birthday celebrations with a fresh new fundraiser – and we’d love your help! Would you like to donate some rewards? Do you have an online shop we can promote in exchange for some proceeds? Can you help us spread the word with your amazing online PR skills?
But wait! Didn’t we already have some success with Crowdfunding? Yes we did! Since March last year, our amazing community raised £39,988 (to date) through our online appeals. 100% of this and more (£50,377 in total) has gone directly to support our 11 freelancers (including our cleaner!) to survive the struggle of the past year and we are all extremely grateful!
But Open Barbers as a social enterprise is forecasting a scary big loss this year, so we are fundraising for our future! We invite you to shower us with birthday presents if you can, and help us celebrate reaching double figures. This will get us beyond these troubled times and set us up for our next decade ahead!
If you would like to get in touch, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions!
Lots of love, the OB team!
