October the 1st: An Announcement!
As many of you know, I don't have a lot of time on my hands. Between teaching classes, taking class and doing class reading, I don't have a lot of time to concentrate on funding for India. So I had a light bulb this week.
One of my fellow travelers, Ashley, is learning to be a photographer, and is taking portraits of people for a donation to her trip, and that is her main source of fundraising for the trip.
Now, many of you know, I enjoy photography, so much so that I bought myself a DSLR this summer, and I have been learning how to use it. It is, of course, traveling to India with me, and I will probably have a couple thousand photos to sort through once I get back.
So, what am I to do with very little time, a nice camera, and a ton of photos that I'll have when I get back?
Photo books, of course!
I am announcing today, October the 1st, that for everyone who donates $35 or more (and this is retroactive too), I will make a photobook of my India photos. This means, of course, that you will have an awesome memento of my trip, cool looking unique photos that no one else will have , and the knowledge that you helped send me over there to take them!
You can donate in the sidebar on the paypal button, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get my address if you prefer snail mail.
The payment dates have changed, so I now have $1500 due at the end of October instead of $1250 this week. I need to raise about $750 more to be comfortable. So if you want to donate, please do!
(Oh, and yes, that's a sample photo of my photography skill up there).
