UPDATE!!

Wow! Thank you so much for taking part! Together, the ‪#‎BullCity‬ & friends so rocked it! We surpassed the total number of ‪#‎Squareholders‬ by 84 & the most money raised EVER! This place really is like no other, once again showing that it really is Durham, NC – Where Great Things Happen.

So grateful to be in it with you.

Leon, Areli and the CC Crew

———————————

A key part of crowdfunding is getting your involvement. We love every single square & really want every person who loves CC to be part of opening the second shop.

We are incredibly grateful for our SuperSquareholders as well. We have 4 folks, individuals and other local businesses, who’ve contributed $1000 each. We really appreciate all of y’all! We are now at 338 Squareholders and $43,800 with a few hours left.

I know we can get there Durham. And it would be amazing to hit 350 to really say something about the Bull City…how it supports small independent business and getting behind living wage jobs and careers! We can do it!

Will you get one square today (i.e. a $50 loan)? and help us blow past the top number ever? http://csc.rocks/cocoa-cinnamon

We are going farther will do three important things –
1) Get more of you involved in a direct way with the CC project (which includes early invites and info like below).  This really does matter to us; crowdfunding is only partly about money. The tangible connection it leads to is at least as important.

Neighbors and Squareholders get early visit.

2) Tell the whole US that Durham gets behind local projects like nowhere else – jettisoning the #CommunitySourcedCapital model in our city and region and creating more opportunity for deft entrepreneurs to keep our city one of a kind.

3) Help us do more with the unique art and design that we are developing to make the space one of a kind. Think of the front room floor in our current space….Let’s just say our CSC will help fund similar awesome aesthetic elements in our second shop.

The collaborative design for the upper cabinet at the new shop is more exciting than we can tell -- the history of coffee geo-mapped and designed by @heatgord in collaborative with @ryaolive & #CharlieEvergreen and shop designer @david_solow.

If you have been thinking about it, every Square matters.  So even if we go over, will you become a Squareholder?

We’d love to have you in on it! Here’s the link – http://csc.rocks/cocoa-cinnamon
