Produced by Respectful Revolution, CHAT NEWS #9 came out as the GoFundMe campaign launched by the Chico Housing Action Team for its future Simplicity Village was nearing completion. Thanks to a spectacular outpouring of generosity, the initial goal of $100,000 was met ahead of schedule ( ! ) and the target was moved to $150,000. $159,000 ended up being raised !!!! This amount would tangibly bring them closer to the actual cost of installing all the necessary infrastructure – without which the village couldn’t happen. In CHAT NEWS #9, see just how close CHAT is in its fundraising efforts to make Simplicity Village a reality.
