Last Saturday, we celebrated our two-year anniversary with a big ol’ party and which may become an annual event, WeMake Celebrates. We were celebrating Portland’s design, art, and maker community and creating a platform for us as a team and as a design community to give back to something we hold dear to us—arts and music education. Portland, you did not let us down!
One of our mottos is “Make Believing” because we need to think that way. We need to believe in possibilities. It’s possible for a community to come together and collectively make a difference—even on a shoestring budget and without all the fancy bells and whistles. I’m thrilled to say we (and by ‘we’ I mean all of you, the makers, the artists, the attendees, and our awesome sponsors) raised $11,0000 to support arts and music education. Hi-five, hot damn, and f*ck yeah! Thank you so much for supporting our efforts to collectively make it happen. You’re awesome!
