Community : True Fans

We are indebted to the hundreds of True Fans who have supported the project since 2009, guaranteeing a basic level of operation independent of any other funding.

The 1000 True Fans funding campaign kicked off in 2009 – soon after we built the first prototypes of the brick press and tractor. This was a time when we operated on no budget – and put all resources into critical machines. In order to continue our work and do it full time, we asked people to support us for 24 months at $10 per month. That is how the True Fans program began. True Fanship makes a significant impact on the project: such as ability to buy over 200lbs of steel for the machines and other materials for projects.

These are some of the extraordinary True Fans who are part of our greater collaboration architecture – who are putting their energy into the project to make OSE’s Mission and Vision a reality.
