Beloved community -
Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has contributed to our sustainability goals on Patreon.
We have a specific request for those who haven't subscribed yet.
This closure has been absolutely devastating to our staff, who were all laid off last week and were briefly scrambling for new jobs.
We've already lost two employees recently to a Large Leather Company we all love, and quite nearly lost several more. Mir literally begged a couple of people on bended knee to stick with us once it became clear we would be able to stay open.
If those many services have been of value to you, please support our stretch goal to hit $20 thousand/month in committed pledges.
If we can hit this goal -- and maintain it -- every staff member will receive two additional paid hours each week purely for their own kink education (reading, classes, podcasts, etc) to further support their work as kink concierges in the community. They will also receive $100/month in store credit to acquire books and toys toward that goal, and we are working on partnerships with local spaces to provide discounted or free admission to their classes.
Our rock star staff are already much more than baristas. If you've seen that, if you've benefited from us, please help us take our kink education and outreach to the next level.
Thank you. Sincerely, thank you.
Mir & the Wicked Grounds team
PS: Now that we're open for good, please remember that tipping is the easiest way to show you love what you're getting! Tip your bartenders at the leather bar, tip your baristas, and tip your bootblacks! Let's support the super hard service workers who create our community safe spaces!
