Deliriously Giddy Appeal!
Here’s an email appeal from CicLAvia boardmember Jenn Su:
Dear dear friends,
Thank you for a fun-filled 2010! One of the coolest things I got to be a part of this year was Los Angeles’ first open streets event, CicLAvia, on 10-10-10.
I still get deliriously giddy thinking about unabashedly riding 7.5 miles of Los Angeles streets without having to worry about car traffic, AND getting to share that feeling with tens of thousands of people. I am psychedddd for more CicLAvia programming in 2011 — the first event is set for April 10 — and I ask now for your help in raising fund$ to ensure the events can happen!
We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to Open L.A. Streets for 2011 CicLAvia Events. Please contribute if you can and help us get the word out by forwarding the page to your friends through Facebook, Twitter, etc.! For a pledge of just $11, we’ll send you a custom designed spoke card, designed by my good friend Colleen! You’ll want one of these, I promise. Donations that come in through Kickstarter will go toward things like publicity, signage, printing, outreach, permitting, design, staffing, freeway off-ramp closures, porta-potties, and more, for CicLAvia’s 2011 programs.
If you’re still looking for one of our 2010 CicLAvia t-shirts, you can also contribute by buying a shirt directly (quantities very limited) over at http://ciclavia.bigcartel.com/.
Thank you for all for your support. Happy new year. 2011, FTW!
All my best,
