Project Description

Welcome to OUR Creative Cravings Crowdfunding page!

 

Whether we know each other already or we're just meeting, thank you for being here.

I'm Sari Feingold & I'm Lauren Feingold. We are co-founders of Creative Cravings LLC and co-hosts of Creative Cravings podcast, our self-run show full of food recommendations, creative journeys, and food for thought from us and our guests, on living life to the fullest! We actually started the podcast when we were craving joy and purpose in our own lives. Through our sampler platter of conversations, we have nourished and inspired people all around the world to fulfill their truest cravings in life, working hard to build a community from scratch. We love connecting with others through our shared cravings to crEATe (eat + create), and hope you do as well!

The show may not be in season, but we are in a season of craving support to bring Season 3 to life.

Each weekly / bi-weekly episode that we release is the product of 50+ hours - from researching / preparing talking points to booking, scheduling, hosting, editing, promoting, and everything in between! We are twin sisters doing it ALL, and with your support, we will hit the ground running doing what we do best - creating, connecting, and collaborating with creatives of all kinds.

Your funds really do fuel our wellbeing and creativity, so we can keep fueling yours.

It's time to get the show on the road! Please keep reading to learn about us, our mission, our thoughtful menu of rewards to inspire your creative cravings, and the reason for doing this crowdfunding campaign for this specific project.

When we secure the necessary funding, every funder will receive an invitation to join our virtual Season 3 launch party. We are already excited to celebrate together!

 

Creative Cravings LLC Mission

Creative Cravings’ mission is to help you feel both FULL & FULFILLED in everyday life. For us and our community, chasing our truest cravings in life and sharing what we love to crEATe with others is the secret ingredient for living fully and being well.

 

Sari and Lauren’s Personal Story + Path to Creative Cravings Podcast

Our shared personal mission is to delight and uplift those around us by sharing our creative cravings. Being a human is hard, and we feel most authentically ourselves when we get to inspire, entertain, comfort, and fuel you in the kitchen, in your career, and in life! 

There have been many times in our twenties where we would be eating delicious food but feeling empty inside because we were not feeling fulfilled in our advertising careers. Over time, those feelings were... eating at us. Isn’t it ironic how much easier it is to follow our food cravings than it is to actually chase our cravings in life? We decided to pay close attention to what we loved. Through rejection, anxiety, sadness, and insecurity, we both found comfort in listening to personal growth podcasts. Finally, we jumped at the chance to learn directly from one of the best podcasters out there. We knew it was time to create something we craved, with our own flavor: a platform bigger than ourselves to share our love of food, culture, creativity, storytelling, and connecting with people. It’s grown into a welcoming space to taco’ bout... resilience, creative expression, wellbeing, family, friendship, our guests' unique cravings, and ingredients for living life to the fullest. That is why our podcast, Creative Cravings, exists today.

Why crowdfund?

As we mentioned above, we have been self-funding / bootstrapping our business for a few years. Now it’s time to take IFundWomen’s recommendation to crowdfund as a necessary next step, since we are in the next phase of our entrepreneurial journey. Since our company is somewhere in between beta testing and generating revenue, this strategic move to crowdfund and your combined support will demonstrate to us that we have solid interest and the capacity to expand. 

Why crowdfund for a podcast?

Simply put, we did not get paid for producing Seasons 1 and 2 of the podcast, but we did feel our impact - in podcast reviews, in messages from listeners, and in appreciation from all our guests, including dream guests! That driving force inspired us not to give up, but to re-evaluate how we run the show (literally and metaphorically). Investing in our entrepreneurship education, graduating from a podcast accelerator program, forming small affiliate partnerships with aligned brands, and wearing all the hats to bring Creative Cravings business, brand, podcast, website, and community to life has truly been a labor of love. We now have a deep understanding of the podcasting industry landscape. Though podcasting is a $1 billion industry, this advertising stat majorly reflects the voices of those who already have huge audiences and teams of people working with them on their shows. This leaves talented indie podcasters (like us) treading water to keep up, simultaneously looking for a new model to make & raise money for our hard work. Indie podcasters have so much to offer! We don’t want to give up, so we are pivoting by asking for help because we want to be good examples to other indie podcasters who wonder if they will ever “make it.” By continuing to create a successful show, we will be able to set ourselves up to, eventually, pay it forward to indie podcasters by launching a podcast network full of passionate podcasters.

What will you use the funds for?

As you probably realize by now, we have made big sacrifices to build Creative Cravings over these 4 years and have had to practice having faith in ourselves every single day. With every courageous step (and leap, like this launch), we lead with intention, empathy, and generosity.

We will use the funds for further development of our business, in the following ways:

  • Renting and decorating a space that feels inspiring to record podcasts (we don’t have this)
  • Travel expenses to community-driven events where we can connect with new guests
  • Upgrading our podcast hosting platform for advanced analytics 
  • Improved audio / video recording software to enhance technical quality 
  • Hiring a passionate team (accounting / legal / biz support / sound engineer / editor) at competitive compensation
  • Education
  • Investing in mentoring an enthusiastic student intern who craves learning the ropes of podcasting
  • Upgrading accounts for creative tools that we use to promote episodes and learn from other creators (i.e. Canva Pro / Skillshare)
  • Annual / monthly production costs - Squarespace, Google Suite 
  • All-in-one online entrepreneurship platform to create and scale our creative online workshops
  • Ingredients for high quality food content and Cookies for a Cause 
  • Prototyping a wellness product idea that will help anxious creatives
  • Business banking expenses
  • Hosting more listener events
  • Treats to fuel Gracie, because she is an excellent podCAT and Executive Purrrrrducer ;)

I'm Ready to Fund This Campaign!

*Important Note: As you scroll through the rewards, you will see that next to each one, we have a suggested contribution level next to it. This is a suggested minimum, which means - if you are so inclined, you do have an option to contribute more at whichever reward you're craving most.

The Campaign FAQs

1.

Q: If your campaign says "fully funded" but I want you to have my support too, can I still contribute?

A: YES! Our campaign remains open to funders even if you see "fully funded." 

 

2.

Q: Is it best to view your crowdfunding campaign on a mobile device or laptop / desktop?

A: Good question. The formatting is different, however, you will be able to view all rewards & contribute funds on both.

If you are viewing on mobile and want to see our rewards, click the green "Fund It" button below our video to view all rewards.

If you are viewing on laptop / desktop, click the green "Fund It" button to the right of our video.

You will also be able to see all rewards on the right hand side of your screen (vertically). 

Lastly, no matter which device you use, the "Fund It," "View Rewards + Fund It" and "View All Rewards" and "I'm Ready to Fund It" bright green buttons all work to view and fund, too.

 

3. 

Q: If there is a specific reward I want to select, but I would like to contribute more than the contribution level listed next to that reward, can I?

A: YES! Here's how to do so: Select the reward you are craving and then enter your desired contribution amount.  Follow the rest of the checkout steps. That's it!

Every reward level is our suggested minimum, which means - if you are so inclined, you do have an option to contribute more at whichever reward you're craving most.

 

4. 

Q: Can I purchase more than one reward?

A: Absolutely! You can purchase as many rewards as you crave. Each purchase will have to be a separate transaction but the process is the same (and simple).

Again, the "Fund It," "View Rewards + Fund It," and "View All Rewards" bright green buttons all take you to our Rewards page to view and fund.

 

5.

Q: How do I get in touch with any questions regarding a specific reward?

A: Email us at [email protected]. Subject line: Crowdfunding Campaign Question. We will get back to you within 24 hours.

 

6.

Q: I just funded you! When will I receive my rewards?

A: Each reward works differently, so we specifically share the ETA of each reward in its description on our main page / Rewards page. If you have specific questions, please refer to FAQ 2!

 

7.

Q: At checkout, I noticed I should enter my email. Can you share more about why?

A: Sure! We need an easy way to communicate with you to get you your rewards! You will also be added to our newsletter as a new Creative Cravings Insider (free) if you are not on our email list already.

 

8. 

Q: When I fund your campaign, does Creative Cravings LLC receive all of the $$$?

A: We wish! But it is a team effort. We wouldn't be able to crowdfund like this without IFundWomen, so they automatically receive 5%, plus our payment processing providers (say that three times fast!) receive around 4%.

As you will see, we designed several of our rewards to incorporate a charitable component! When you select and fund those specific rewards, we will donate the designated portion (which we communicate clearly in the reward descriptions) to that listed organization, on your behalf!

 

9.

Q: If I'm not in a position to contribute right now, how can I still support you?

A: We love this question.

One way you can still support us is by sharing out our campaign link with your five best friends / communities you love being a part of. This would be a HUGE help. Share that link in your Instagram Stories, text messages, Facebook posts,  your own email lists, and your own podcast if you have one!

Another way to support is to sign up for our newsletter so you can stay up to date on anything we create. You'll automatically be a Creative Cravings Insider (it's free!)

I'm CRAVING paying it fwd: medical bills

It feels good to do good, right? 

From January through April, we will be sending 18% of proceeds at this contribution level to The Upside Fund, an organization created by world-renowned dancing violinist, Lindsey Stirling, to help those in need to pay medical bills. When we launched our Creative Cravings podcast conversation with her at the beginning of 2021, we also hosted a podcast TRIVIA fundraiser for this cause. 18 is symbolic because it means life in Hebrew, so this is known as giving "chai." 

We hope you enjoy our inspiring conversation on Apple, Spotify, or on our Creative Cravings website. Thank you for helping us produce Season 3!

I'm CRAVING donating to Sharsheret

We are thrilled to be donating 10% of the proceeds generated from this reward to Sharsheret, an organization that supports Jewish women and families facing breast and ovarian cancer - and those at high risk for hereditary cancer. Sharsheret (meaning link / chain in Hebrew) alludes to the idea of feeling connected and supported. It is the national philanthropy of Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority, of which we are both alumni (Mu chapter)!

Interesting fact: It was established by Rochelle Shoretz who was a law clerk to the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg!

RBG is our "sister" :) because she was an AEPhi.

Thank you for supporting Creative Cravings LLC.

I'm CRAVING paying it fwd: medical bills

It feels good to do good, right? 

From January through April, we will be sending 18% of proceeds at this contribution level to The Upside Fund, an organization created by world-renowned dancing violinist, Lindsey Stirling, to help those in need to pay medical bills. When we launched our Creative Cravings podcast conversation with her at the beginning of 2021, we also hosted a podcast TRIVIA fundraiser for this cause. 18 is symbolic because it means life in Hebrew, so this is known as giving "chai." 

We hope you enjoy our inspiring conversation on Apple, Spotify, or on our Creative Cravings website. Thank you for helping us produce Season 3! 

XO,

Sari and Lauren

I'm CRAVING giving back

It feels good to do good, right? Each month while our campaign is open, we will donate 36% (symbolically, double "chai") of proceeds to the featured charitable organization, when you select this reward.

From January through April, we will be sending 36% of proceeds to The Upside Fund, an organization created by world-renowned dancing violinist, Lindsey Stirling, to help those in need to pay medical bills. 36 is symbolic because 18 numerically means life in Hebrew, so this is known as giving "double chai." 

When we launched our Creative Cravings podcast conversation with Lindsey at the beginning of 2021, we also hosted a podcast TRIVIA fundraiser for this cause.

We hope you enjoy our inspiring conversation on Apple, Spotify, or on our Creative Cravings website. Thank you for helping us produce Season 3! 

BONUS: As a big thank you for supporting us and any of these organizations, we will recognize you as a co-producer in every Creative Cravings podcast Season 3 episode aka an on-air personal THANK YOU.

In the past:

November was Diabetes Awareness Month and Nov 30th, 2021 is Giving Tuesday. Our dad has had Type 2 Diabetes his whole adult life and we do whatever we can to help him manage it properly. Because of this, we have learned a lot about the disease and we know so many people are struggling with it or have someone close to them who is. That's why in Nov + December, we are donating 36% of proceeds from this reward to the American Diabetes Association.
