Random Acts announced today their 2020 goal of becoming a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit. The group will raise funds throughout the year, beginning March 7 at the MADE WITH LOVE Craft and Arts Fair at Green Bean Nursery in Bucktown.
Like an Etsy explosion, the pop up will feature almost 30 vendors offering handmade gifts, baked goods, clothing, jewelry and more. Enjoy live music and light refreshments while you shop small! Random Acts will not collect a table fee or percentage from these artists, so your $3 suggested donation at the door is greatly appreciated. The event runs from 11am-3pm at Green Bean Nursery (2218 N. Elston Ave.)
A $1000 GoFundMe campaign has also commenced to offset the costs of filing as a non-profit and establish the company's new foundation. In addition to numerous events throughout the year, Random Acts will present the second annual production of Scary Stories this fall, followed by the 5th Chicago production of a fan-favorite queer Christmas musical (pending announcement).
All GoFundMe donations above $10 earn a 2020 Season Sponsor listing, and larger contributions can earn great perks like event tickets or live advertisements during events. GoFundMe accepts all major credit cards, or donate using Paypal at RandomActsChicago.com. Your donation is also welcome via Venmo (@randomacts) or Cash App ($randomactschi).
