We paid the loan!

One year ago, we received the news that if we did not pay $ 200,000 before January 31, 2017, to buy the house, we would have to close Lifting Hands. We saw it impossible, but we could not close the doors that easy. In December we launched a campaign on social networks asking for the support of all of you, and we raised $ 80,000, and in January, a group of entrepreneurs lent us $ 120,000, which we had to cancel before August 22nd. We had fundraising activities, raffles, cooking classes, etc., and we raised $ 45,500 more. Days before the deadline, we received excellent news: we had six more months to cancel the debt. Eight days ago we finished paying!
THANK YOU! To those who donated a $1 or $1000, to those who believed in us and in this community, to all of you. The only way to achieve this was by joining and fighting together for this community that we love so much.
