Nashville, Tenn. (September 14, 2016) – Receiving an overwhelmingly positive response after sharing their vision with the world, The Purpose Hotel™ campaign has exceeded the initial goal of $347,000 pledged on Kickstarter in less than 48 hours. The project relaunch on September 12 tracked faster than anticipated, as nearly 2,000 people joined in backing the crowd-sourced effort. Humbled by the movement of all backers, meeting the Step One goal allows The Purpose Hotel™ team to take steps in developing the initial designs and financing of the building.
"The momentum this campaign has is unbelievable. Right out of the gate we had not only return backers, but new ones as well. I’m grateful, humbled and really excited to see where this goes over the next 24 days," says Cowart. "This is proof that people care. I’m already hearing stories of people who have been inspired and uplifted by this idea. It’s going to just multiply from here."
The next phase of The Purpose Hotel™ relies on meeting the second step of $755,000 through the Kickstarter campaign. Step Two will allow The Purpose Hotel™ team to further the hotel architectural plans, interior planning and engineering design/planning specific to the sites selected for the hotel.
Backers can continue supporting the campaign until its conclusion on Friday, October 7. To back The Purpose Hotel™, visit thepurposehotel.com.
