A fine few days on the fundraising front, thanks to Omar Khan, Ann Sprayregen, Ted Laskaris, Ivan Brenes, Michele Kupersmith, Johnny Powell, John Tollefsen, mflgrmp, Kim Wilson, and Darren Cameron. Things are moving along so nicely we may be able to fund the first expansion of the original 100-word edition of the dictionary. Thanks so much to you all.
And with thanks in mind, I've created a new reward: one of my carvings--actually three of my carvings--featuring a very Zen-like proverb from the Chittagong Hill Tracts, written in the Marma language and alphabet: "It is only the pupils who become the masters." I suspect these will be snapped up quickly, so please support us right away at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1496420787/100-words-for-a-childrens-endangered-language-dict!
Thanks again, everyone.
