We are aiming to expand our sharing/circular economy into a DIY Centre & a Sharing Depot where we can share skills, tools and things that we might not always need but when we do, we don't need for long! The more we share the more we have!

Further Information

So its been a year since we last crowdfunded...

...and what a year it was!

We have manage to achieve all of the goals set in our last crowdfunding and more!

We have refurbish the TL, got a BUNCH of donations, we have had over 250 loans and we have run a very successful monthly Repair Café that has kept 327kg of materials from going to landfills AND we have the most badass bunch of volunteers.

Now we feel ready to tackle the second phase of our project:
Sharing Depot & DIY Centre.

What is a Sharing Depot?

The Sharing Depot is an extension of the Tool Library, where you will be able to borrow random things that you may need every now and then but not worth buying duo to price/space. Examples? Tents, carpet cleaners, baking tins, laminators, etc.

What is a DIY Centre?

The DIY Centre will be a community space where people can come and use it to work on their projects and learn new skills. There will also be available (hopefully soon) a Laser Cutter and a CNC Mill. This will allow small production of products for crafters and designers that otherwise wouldn't be able to afford the expensive equipment.

So, why are we crowdfunding I hear you ask?

We have applied for many grants and while we have been waiting to hear back from them, we couldn't stop the natural expansion happening (we were starting to run out of room for all the donations). So we are setting our crowdfunding goal low at €1000 because Karolina Fund is a all or nothing crowdfunding platform and we would like to make sure we can get the money you support us with.

We would much rather reach the lovely €10000 mark and over reach our goal by 1000% and BREAK THE SYSTEM!

You can join us by getting a discounted membership or if you are feeling naughty you can make a donation of whatever amount you may like and BECOME A CIRCULAR ECONOMY LEGEND! Also Anna will take you for Ice-cream...

What will the money raised be used for?

Buying equipment for the DIY Centre, using the money to refurbish the space and make it a decent workshop, buying things for the Sharing Depot, re arranging the library area AND helping us pay for a couple of months rent to get us on own feet before we hear back from Grants or start our badass workshop sessions.

We are a non profit, so no money raised will be spent outside the Tool Library. We aim to be self sufficient by summer next year, but until then we hope we are still going to fit in in a few grant categories, as this still for now Anna's expensive hobby. (We hear the government is interested in Circular Economy so lets hope they want to support us, fingers very much crossed)

Before you ask, YES we will make another Toolraiser with focus on the Sharing Depot. We are aiming to make our early badass gig in August, obviously you are invited ;)
