As 2021 turns into 2022 it’s a time to reflect on all we’ve accomplished and what goals we have for the year ahead. These last couple of years have been challenging for all of us, but it has also been a time of growth and opportunity. We have pushed through difficulty and come out on the other side stronger for what we have been through together. We should all be proud of how far we’ve come. Here is what Bucket List Community Café has accomplished in the last year.
We tripled our audience since 2020.
We hosted an event to support community journalism with our friends at the Denver North Star.
We raised money and proved that community news can be community supported.
We mentored students at CU Boulder and CU Denver.
We obtained a trademark.
We gained recognition in North Denver and in Colorado’s journalism ecosystem.
We sent out a monthly newsletter.
We promoted small businesses and collaborated with non-profits.
We expanded our reach to include all the areas of North Denver.
Here are our goals for the year ahead.
Continue to be North Denver’s home for information, inspiration and interaction.
Expand our team to include more writers and bring you more original content.
Expand our strategic communication team so we can reach you where you’re at.
Continue to innovate ways to be at the intersection of journalism and community.
Expand our mentorship program so more young journalists get real world experience.
Continue our outreach into BIPOC communities so that we represent all neighbors.
Look for a diversity of journalists so our stories represent all voices.
Continue to lean towards social justice and community building.
Spend your generous contributions wisely to better serve North Denver.
Come up with creative ways to collaborate with small businesses and non-profits.
Bucket List Community Cafe is #newsCOneeds and every penny raised up to $5000 will be matched by the Colorado Media Project until 12/31. We believe community journalism should be community supported. Please contribute as we come to the end of our campaign. Blessings to you and your family for a healthy, happy new year full oof things you can check off your Bucket List.
