Meet our daughter who is raising funds for an exciting project. She asked us to start this Kickstarter campaign to fund her idea. As her parents, we hope this experience will teach her that there are many ways to accomplish her dreams. We hope Faith's words will persuade you to support her project.
Hi! My name is Faith Lindsey and I am an 11 year old photographer. I have been a photographer since the age of 9. I am raising money to complete an independent research project to create a photo calendar while traveling to Chicago, IL with my 5th grade class in April 2014. My research will use photography to compare the architecture and green spaces of Chicago, Illinois, my former residence, with Louisville, Kentucky, where I currently live. I will take pictures of Louisville’s architecture and green spaces after visiting Chicago.
I will create a 2015 12-month wall calendar as a pdf file that will be sold as a download that anyone can print on their home computer or at a professional printer. The calendar will be ready for sale in August 2014, but I want you to see the pictures before then. So I will write a blog posting the calendar’s pictures with captions describing their history, back story, or inspiration. The blog will also have interesting facts about Chicago and Louisville. Both of these cities are very dear to my heart. My independent research project will let me share my love of both cities with others.
The funds will go towards buying a new camera and producing the calendar. The price of my 5th grade class trip to Chicago is $284. I have raised over half of the money to cover expenses for the Chicago trip. My minimum Kickstarter goal of $400 will cover the cost of a new camera and publishing software to create the calendar. I want to raise at least $150 over my minimum Kickstarter goal to cover any remaining trip expenses.
I really appreciate it if you will donate what you can to help me share my trip through photography.
Risks and challenges
My main challenges are not having the right publishing software and transportation to take photographs in Louisville. I think both of these are easy to solve if they should happen. My parents know a lot about publishing software that I can use to create my photo calendar. They will help me purchase Microsoft Publisher to layout the calendar. If one of my family’s computers breaks down I will be able to use my dad’s laptop or any other working computer in my house. If my parents can’t get me to the locations where I want to take photographs in Louisville I will either walk, bike, or ride public transportation with a sibling, another adult, or even an extended family member.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
