Secure the Western Iowa Hub

I'm an Iowa townie, volunteering full-time in Storm Lake. We NEED to secure a Western Iowa hub for long(er) term volunteer involvement- this *IS* the perfect spot for that.  We've been knocking on hundreds of doors with the occasional volunteer, but we need to crank up the activity- in a big way.

This is the PERFECT house to serve as a Western Iowa hub for #yanggang.  It sleeps 10+, the campaign office is about a 10 second walk, 2 bath, 3 bedroom with 2 bunks (4 beds) 1 master bedroom (with an extra futon) and a second dedicated bedroom. The living room has fold out couches which should sleep 5(?). Big kitchen and dining area. 2 balconies. *SEE PICS*

With a successful GFM campaign, we would be able to secure deposit ($750) + December rent ($750) + $50/person. If this goes well, we'll do a second round for January. 

ONE CAVEAT: this is an AirBNB place, so because the landlord is giving us such a great deal- he says if he gets an AirBNB booking we'll need to find a place to go (hotel or volunteer housing or something) while it's being occupied. It's normally $300/night and we'll be in the dead of winter so I don't expect many bookings to come in. Either way, we're the resilient, resourceful and dedicated #yanggang and am confident  we'd be able to adjust to keep pushing forward!

I'll post more later but just wanted to get this done and out there asap!
Please ask questions!

LET'S SECURE THIS PLACE AND AND YANG ALL OF WESTERN IOWA! LETSGOOOOOO
