[Admin] Unless you're buying your shirt here, your money is going to a for-profit company. Support your march here in KC! (Children's shirts coming soon.) And YES, enough have been ordered that this will be funded.

From the Facebook page:

[Admin] We had a great meeting this morning! Good things are coming! If you filled out the google doc, expect an email soon. If you didn't and you're seriously interested in volunteering in any capacity, shoot us an email with your interests/talents - kcmarchforscience@gmail.com. If you're interested in having a booth at the teach in (including children's activities) we'll get out a new google doc soon to collect that info.

The city has approved our request to use Washington Square Park (more details coming!) This is where the money drain begins. So please join us for our fundraiser at Up-Down on Monday! We'd love to chat with you and answer questions there.

Tweet tweet tweet! We need you to be tweeting about #marchforsciencekc! Tweet at local politicians, news, and celebrities too!

Thank you so much for your patience, your passion, and most of all, for using your minds along with your hearts.

Oh snap. If you're in or around Orville Dam, get out now. Any where near the Feather River up there. Go now, get in the car and go.

[Admin] From DC:

"Good morning! A bit of Merch for Science news:

A Facebook page posing as the Women's March is selling March for Science shirts on teechip (and using promoted ads for them on facebook), claiming to donate all funds to the March for Science. They are not associated with us and have, at this point, probably raised more than $15,000 for their own use. Our official store is at http://store.marchforscience.com/ -- the shirt we sell is identical. We have tried multiple times to have this taken down, but teechip has been unresponsive.

If you were misled to purchase from them thinking that you were supporting the March for Science, we encourage you to reach out to https://teechip.com/contact and ask for a full refund.

We would obviously be thrilled if you choose to purchase the shirt from our site, but that is up to you! We just wanted to notify you of this scam and give you the option to get your money back from whoever it is that is pretending to be a charity."

KC NOTE: They haven't put up individual city shirts yet - locally, we will only profit from our own city shirt.

Update from the Admins at the FB page:

[Admin] WEEKLY UPDATE -- A look at where we are and where the process is. We want this to be transparent as possible, so here we go...

1. We have added a group of moderators to the group. They will be there to help guide conversation, post interesting articles that are germane to the conversation, and keep out any trolls. They will post with [Mod] in the content.

2. We have discussed march routes and reached out to the city and other necessary agencies. We expect some details to be firmed up within the next week to 10 days.

3. We are committed to this being an educational as well as a political (not partisan) event. We are looking at how we can do booths, teach-ins and the like. We will ask your help on this front in the coming days.

4. We are in the process of merging our Twitter account with the other one that was created. We will keep both alive for the short term. Follow and tweet @ScienceMarchKC or @ScienceforKC. We also are on Instagram as @ScienceMarchKC. We will be adding Mods for those platforms next week.

5. A REQUEST: Please send us your story. One of the things we want to see on this page is WHY you're marching for science. Post your story with a photo or video! Or send it to us at kcsciencemarch@gmail.com

6. FUNDING UPDATE: We have raised more than $1,250. This is excellent. This will cover the permits we need. However, we are still asking that you donate because we need items such as bathrooms, police presence, stage setups, etc. We have no desire to ask for money, but it's part of the process. Please share the URL: http://www.gofundme.com/sciencemarchKC

7. FINALLY: We have the public page for the event itself. Please share it with all, and invite everyone you know! Our goal is to have at least 2,500 people out there marching. We know we can do it!

We have been overwhelmed by the participation and support. The folks who started this page are just regular people like you. Scientists and people who love science (I horned in later). Show your support, keep the momentum going, and let's show this country what science means to us here in the Heartland.

This was posted late last night so just wanted to report it for anyone who may not have seen it. Thanks all!
The GoFundMe page is up for raising money for the March. This will go toward permits and safety. Any leftover funds will go to a science-base charity.
