Today was a great day despite the troll! As you may recall from the last post, I have encountered the first big challenge of the project: financing a feasibility study. I think of it as a baby troll.
The baby troll needs $15, 295 worth of feeding.
I spent the weekend brainstorming ideas for how to feed the baby troll, since this is an essential first step toward realizing the castle park. It absolute must-be-done in order for the project to continue to go forth in a serious manner.
Many streams make a river of dreams. Here is revenue stream the first:

Coupon-Fairy Fundraiser ProgramWelcome to the Coupon-Fairy Program. Please allow me to explain a little bit about it! This program has been developed as a fundraising effort for “The Castle Project” (http://www.gofundme.com/97gtd8). Follow the link to read a detailed description of the project, plan and ongoing timeline.
Late in 2013 we began to embark on our vision of building a full-scale event-center adventure park. It is a multi-million dollar project, on a 3-4 year timeline. Although the primary funding will be obtained via private investors, every possible stream of revenue facilitates the project achieving reality.
Our first milestone (which I have affectionately dubbed the “Baby Troll”) that we are striving to reach is to raise $15,295 to cover the expense of hiring an architectural firm to assemble a feasibility study. A feasibility study, in this context, is a collection of the schematics and documents that are presented to general contractors to get bids on what the project will actually cost to build. This information is critically necessary to formulating a fully developed business plan. No business plan, no private funding.
PURPOSE OF COUPON FAIRY PROGRAM
--To fundraise a minimum of $15,000 to pay for an architectural feasibility study.
--To benefit the handmade and artisan community in the process of achieving our first major milestone.
