Carrotmobbers! We asked you for campaign ideas! We asked you to help us organize campaigns! Kristen Berman, a local organizer here in San Francisco was the first of many to answer the call and she came to us with a great campaign!
is a famed local haunt and one of Hayes Valley's best coffee shops. But today, Nick Parker, Mercury Cafe's owner is at a crossroads. For the past two years, Nick has been raising funds to complete a parklet right outside the entrance to the cafe on Octavia Street. And what a great parklet this will be! A public space for people to sit, read, talk, and, yes, drink coffee, the parklet will be made from reclaimed wood and feature innovative green features to make the space very cozy and community oriented. Problem is Nick has only raised $6,000 of the anticipated $8,000 cost. He needs US (yes, you Carrotmobbers!) to get him over the finish line! After talking with us, Nick has agreed to devote all the proceeds from the Carrotmob to bridging the gap and turning this from vision into reality!
