The third Kaleido retreat was a success!
We are just back from the third Kaleido retreat which you all made possible. It was a wonderful weekend full of intellectual, social and body stimulation, smiles, music, dance, and friendship. We are working on a short video to give a glimpse of how it went and will not forget to share a link with you all. We also plan to upload the recorded talks on our new website (soon online!). Hopefully those who haven’t will be with us next year to live this experience together with us.
By next week we will write all of you a personal E-mail with more information on your rewards - bear with us!
The Kaleido Team
Thanks to your generosity, we made it!
What an incredible news, thanks to all your generosity we reached our funding goal of 4’000 CHF !
Reaching our funding goal has unlocked an additional 4’000 CHF from the Gebert Rüf Stiftung, who matched every franc you supported us with with another franc. The total amount raised of 8’000 CHF will have a very important impact on Kaleido and will help us to keep this project alive!
Part of the funding will be used to offer a reduced price to students and people from lower income groups with the aim to make Kaleido as inclusive as possible. Another part of the funding is enabling us to offer group travel to the participants from Zurich to reduce our carbon impact, to make the retreat more accessible, and to start building the Kaleido 3rd retreat community from the very start. We will also be able to pay a small fee to our amazing speakers and workshop leaders, and to cover their travel and stay. We always use our resources carefully, in order to save part of the funding to guarantee reduced priced tickets for the next retreat as well.
Our campaign is still running for some days, after which we will reach out to all of you directly to coordinate your rewards!
By helping to make the Kaleido community grow, you are encouraging a much-needed culture of dialogue and knowledge transfer, critical thinking, open-mindedness, and an attitude of responsible conscious living. A warm THANK YOU from the smiling Kaleido team!
Thank you for helping us to cross the 50% funding mark!
We have some great news: last Sunday, after 10 days of crowdfunding campaign, we crossed the 50% funding mark for the Kaleido retreat! Thank you all for your much-appreciated support. Today we still have 17 days to go, and we have now crossed the 60% mark. If we reach the 4’000 CHF funding goal on time, every CHF spent will be matched by another CHF by the Stiftung Science Booster. We will keep you up to date about our progress!
All the best, your Kaleido team
