Guess what? The website is FINALLY done! You know what this means, right? It means that soon catewhite.com stickers will begin appearing on the signs of panhandlers all over San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, and maybe beyond if I can get that far. This is the fun part, right? Go check it out at www.catewhite.com.
(I wish it were easier to browse the work for sale. You have to click through a few too many windows for my taste, but it seemed there was no way around it with the plug-in we were using.) What do you all think?
I hope you are enjoying the updates. Some of you have asked about when you will receive your schwag. Here's how it works. IF (and only if) I reach my $2000 goal by March 15th, will your pledges be deducted from your bank accounts. After that you can expect an email from me requesting mailing info, link info, and whatever info I need to send you your rewards. We've got less than two weeks to go. There have been a few stragglers over the last couple of weeks to keep hope alive. Remember, if I don't reach the $2000 goal, your pledges will not be deducted from your account and I won't get anything. So, again, if you know of anyone else who might want to donate, please do send them the link, which can be copied right under the video on my main page. Thanks everybody!
