WE'VE GOT 2 DAYS TO SHOW PROGRESS

SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE?

That's what they said when we opened our doors 8 years ago

We've survived all these years, let's not stop now.

Summary

I started Lorem Ipsum Books in 2003 after graduating from the MIT Media Lab, where I had the idea to bring innovation to the used bookstore industry.  Since that time, we've blasted through many ideas, yet have not reached sustainability.  We rely on your support to keep on fighting. Unfortunately we are up against the wall, with our landlord's patience at an end--he needs resolution by Tuesday.

 

We are fighting do a couple of things:

  • Keep Lorem Ipsum Books in Cambridge, MA open. We need rent money, and need to prove that we'll have it fairly quickly.
  • Fund an ongoing research and development program (with any extra funds) that should help the bookstore industry in general.

What We Need & What You Get

 

$29,000. After fees and prizes, this should be enough to continue our fight.

 

Break it down for folks in more detail:

  • $23,300 goes to back rent.
  • The rest goes to build a financial buffer and ship any perks.
  • Extra money will be used for R&D or to help perpetuate this or other bookstores.
  • If we don't reach our entire goal, we will use the money for rent.
