Following on the heels of the successful Something Positive “Help Me Quit My Job” donation drive, the fellows at Goats have launched a similar effort. The full details on positive changes for Goats that would occur depending on the amount of money raised are listed on the site. Jon Rosenberg also provides an explanation for why a fundraising effort is needed now:
The shame of it is that I think we’re only a year or so away from being able to do this full-time with a small but reasonable salary. It would be a dream come true, and we’re so close I can smell it. There’s two of us that need to be paid, so it’s taking about twice as long as we’d like, but it is possible. Especially if I can spend less time trying to find freelance work and more of my time working on the strip to get us to that point. Unfortunately I’m not entirely sure I can get over this hump with my credit rating intact. At least, not without your help.
