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.

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

To support this dream we are raising money to (A) train facilitators, (B) create a tool kit for organizers, and (C) reach out to colleges and universities.

In the meantime we are doing what we do: run Make Shift Coffee Houses where there is local support and as resources allow.

Thank you for joining our dream. Together we can combat incivility and help save what we love about America.
