I am pleased to announce that LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel Kiva Zip campaign, as of today 11:38am CST, has been fully funded. We reached our $4000.00 goal! I was doing some table dancing w/the background techno music in this coffee shop when the notice came to me. The last lender who closed the campaign was Sam from Royal Wotton Bassett, United Kingdom! Thank you, Sam!

Roho Garcia and I would like to thank everyone who supported the project as lenders, sharers of our campaign link to their networks and individuals who offered in-kind support (i.e., Vivian Garcia and Sarontay Smith, your contribution offering made me feel really loved).

Gratitude to Karen McKay, the Kiva Zip fellow, who assisted us throughout the process. So glad she did not allow me to walk away from her exposition table a few months ago. Please consider to fund other Kiva Zip campaigns.

The biggest shout out to BLUE1647 for endorsing the LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel Kiva Zip campaign, Emile Cambry, Reid Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn for considering our campaign for matched funds, and the entire BLUE1647 family for being our cheering squad (you all know how to roll up your sleeves and get to work for our community). Mad love to you all!

Something that became an idea at 3am in the morning is turning into a reality. Thank you for believing in Roho and I. Now, the real work begins. Stay tuned! Big news to share tomorrow!
