Here's what we need money for.

We believe that Make Shift Coffee House is replicable and scalable. And we can see that it's making an impact. These events are helping us get along better, in spite of our differences.

We think there should be Make Shift Coffee Houses happening across Maine  every day in all kinds of settings. We want people to organize and facilitate them without Craig. We want to see multiple Make Shift Coffee Houses in the same community over time. 

Eventually we would like to see Make Shift Coffee Houses in communities and in colleges and universities across the country.

To support this long term dream, our short term focus is on making an impact here in Maine, our home state. Maine is small enough to make a real difference here, yet also very reflective of national political demographics. What we achieve and learn here will have national significance.

The money we raise today supports our short term focus and our long term dreams.

If you would like more specifics or would like to discuss with Craig or a member of our Advisory Board, please reach out.

Thank you for joining our dream.
