85 people around the world have given AUD$17,453.40 since January 11th!
Contributions have ranged from from $7 to $4,000, as your generosity has flowed with faith in the project and the sincere desire to help create hope, save lives and replace looks of worry and tension with smiles and laughter.
If you haven't donated yet, there's still time - take the plunge and help us reach a target of $20,000 by next Sunday. The more you give, the more we can do.
I've seen it again and again, the transformation from a shattered individual to someone who has purpose and joy. They have been my motivation, and now I have the added incentive of the support and encouragement of friends and well wishers who have given their money, their time, their enthusiasm, their facebook shares and likes and so much more to make the crowdfunding campaign a success.
This week we send Hope to the printers. It looks fantastic and I can't wait to show you all.
Now we move into the next stage - promotion, distribution and sales. A book is only worthwhile if people read it. With your donation we can be more effective and spread the message far and wide. If you have ideas, contacts, somewhere you can sell the book, do let me know. I see this as a community project and the world is our community. I'm one person, you are many.
Let's share Hope and see the smiles!
