Several great pieces of news!
Bread for the Journey has donated $1,000 to support our Inside Out community workshop series! We had a lovely meeting with them last night and they were so excited about our project. Our next workshop is Saturday, October 22nd from 10 am to noon at Asbury United Methodist Church at 38 1/2 St. and Cherrywood. ALL Austin women welcome. Go to our Facebook event page for more details.
The Project Management Class in Web Design and Interactive Media at the Art Institute of Austin is going to build us a new website! For free! Michelle and Kat went up to Round Rock yesterday to discuss ideas and teach the class to play zip, zap, boing. I love how these games are fun for everyone. We can talk and talk and talk about what we do, but it’s so much more satisfying to just do it. We’ll meet with them before Thanksgiving to see what they’ve come up with. I can’t wait to have a professional, creative website made by people who know what they’re doing!
We’re also in the beginning stages of incorporation. We’re gathering board members, writing bylaws and doing all of the budgetary paperwork necessary to gain our own 501c3 status. By this time next year, we hope to be an independent organization! There’s all sorts of growth and changes in the works around here.
