Dear DREAM Supporter,
As salamu alaykum! Peace be upon you.

Absolutely incredible. In just two days, we came together and raised $55,000 to purchase a critical piece of land in our neighborhood! While our campaign came up just a bit short, we were able to work with a couple key supporters to make sure we had the difference and could pay the seller on time.

We can’t say thank you enough to everyone who donated, shared, prayed, or hoped for the success of this drive. Finally, after years of waiting, we own the most ideal future site for DREAM’s first commercial development.

We’re in the beginning of an important strategic planning period right now, thoroughly assessing all that we’ve done so far and where DREAM is headed in the next 5, 10, and 20 years. Now, we can factor this potential cornerstone property into our plans.

We’ll be in touch again about this location when we have some significant updates. Thanks again for all your continued support.

Peace and Blessings,

The Dream of Detroit Team
