With only 15 days left, the kickstart.com campaign to Save the Market Bakery is only 20% towards fulfillment, and has hardly moved for a week. Thousands of people interested in local food in Oklahoma, but we are having a hard time coming up with $25K to ensure the survival of an important spoke in the local food wheel. No one needs to bet the farm, one thousand $20 contributions would do it. And if that's too much, how about a dollar or two or five? Would that be so impossible?
Often we think that somebody else will step forward, and that I won't have to do anything. Many many people have that attitude. It's an attitude that will stop our progressing local food system, cold in its tracks. We can remain in our lethargy if that makes us comfortable, but the price of that is losing something important to our growing local food system.
I encourage everyone to make a pledge to help save the Market Bakery. Just click on the link in the sidebar to this post.
