We had a dream 13 years ago of cultivating and establishing a creative space, bringing together like-minded crafters & fostering a positive energy outlet for creative passions. We had been living that dream until Covid-19 hit. This request isn’t something I could have ever imagined but it’s time to swallow our pride and ask for your help in keeping the dream alive for all of us!
The Scrap Cabana’s best efforts over the past 9 months have fallen short in generating the revenue needed to pay fully the monthly rent & expenses, due to the mandatory closure of our "non-essential" business for 3 months. The limits on social gathering capacities since re-opening on a much small scale since July 2020, let alone recover from our 3-month closure. Unfortunately, we just discovered this weekend, we have run out of time.
The building our Studio is located is up for sale, and for us to finish out our lease until March 31, 2021 & discover a new location for our company to prevail, we need your help! Unexpectant the owners of our space requested that we settle our outstanding balance due for 2020 by December 31st. We have been in constant communication with them regarding our efforts every month since the Covid pandemic and this request was an unexpected setback that we were surprised to discover. With our continued efforts to keep our business alive & our last resort reluctance to seek donations, our goal is to fulfill our commitment to not only our lease agreements but to you as our valued customers, conduct our 3-month events in our Studio and relocate our company in an even better location.
After 9 months of exhausting all our potential revenue generating activities, our last-ditch effort is creating this Go Fund Me Covid Recovery Request for Donations. We appreciate any donations towards helping us keep our small business dreams alive!
Our business has been built for 13 years on the ability to offer positive, welcoming, creative, like minded individuals that have come together to relax & escape everyday challenges or stresses. Over the years many have created new & more often, long lasting friendships from attending our events that have extended beyond our gatherings. We value and cherish that our dream has offered a creative outlet & rare friendship opportunity to many.
Never would I have imagined that I would be asking for your help but 2020, as we all know, has been a challenging year for all. We are humbled and so thankful if you choose to donate to our small business Covid Recovery Fund!
We understand everyone has endured suffering during this pandemic and if you aren’t able to donate, we would appreciate any shares of our Covid Recovery Efforts. Share this fundraiser, spread the word about our Studio or website with everyone you know that values cultivating creativity. Our website, The Scrap Cabana Studio or our FB page, The Scrap Cabana . As always verbal referrals, or recommendations of our services is greatly appreciated!
The Scrap Cabana Studio's website is also offering additional optimistic options to help us generate the funds needed by December 31, 2020. Visit our Studio for our Holiday Retail Sales, Register for a Weekend Event in our Studio, purchase one of our handmade masks , refer someone to attend our virtual Cricut Training Classes , visit our Studio to purchase retail product or purchase a gift certificate for a loved one.
Thank you for your support, past and present of our small business. We hope to survive this Covid chapter and eventually turn the page and one day we can look back and proclaim, “We survived the Covid pandemic. Anything is possible with positive support!”
We are optimistic that we will survive the end of 2020, celebrate our final 3 months in our Studio, January - March 2021, & once again reinvent our company offerings to you in a new location in 2021. We are hopeful we can generate the funds needed to save & rebuild our small business with your support.
Wishing you a Safe, Healthy Holiday Season, Thank You for your generosity & we hope to visit with you in 2021! #smallbusinessrelief
