Wednesday, Dec. 14th, 2016
The Federation of Independent Sea Harvesters of Newfoundland and Labrador (FISH-NL) has reached its fundraising goal of $16,000 raised over five days through a crowd funding campaign.
“We asked for support and we got it,” said Ryan Cleary, president of FISH-NL. As of 3 p.m. today, 135 people had donated a total of $16,005 — money to purchase media advertising, hire staff to oversee the conclusion of the membership drive, and travel/office expenses.
“Support continues to pour in from all over Newfoundland and Labrador in the form of signed FISH-NL cards and donations,” said Cleary. “The momentum continues to build, and it’s fascinating to watch it unfold.”
