This week’s Utah Crowd-Funding campaign is asking people to empty their wallets to make more wallets. And belts. And briefcases.
Rawlings has been in business for five years, and wants to take Fullgive to the next level. That requires buying 1,600 square feet of higher-quality American-made vegetable-tan leather, and (with whatever’s left over) a second sewing machine.
Benefits range from a slim wallet (for a $35 pledge) to a Frenchie briefcase (for a $599 pledge).
So far, with six days to go, Rawlings is well on his way — having received $10,860 in pledges toward his $13,000 goal.
If you have a crowd-funding project you’d like mentioned on The Cricket blog, email it to: email@example.com. Be sure to put "crowd funding" in the subject line.
