Thanks to anyone who has written to express interest regarding our attempt to open a full-time charitable restaurant. It's really heartening to be a part of a community effort. We have received an encouraging amount of emails and are moving forward as quickly as possible to make this a reality. If you're interested and you have not yet done so, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks also to anyone who offered services or suggestions. As per the suggestions of a few people, I have started a kickstarter project allowing anyone to contribute any amount (as little as $1, and with some rewards for contributions over $50):
Special thanks to the people who made that happen (keeping you anonymous for your own privacy, but I'd be happy to credit you publicly any time you'd like).
