Our campaign to raise $5,000 to publish children's books in the indigenous languages of Bangladesh was doing very well for a few days, but seems to have stalled again. Please consider helping to push us over the line at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1388900883/our-golden-hour.

Thanks so much.

Thanks plus

Thanks to all of you who have already supported our new Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1388900883/our-golden-hour. I'd really appreciate it if you could pass the word along to to others who might be interested, though, as after a flying start we seem to have hit a bit of a plateau....

Very best wishes,

Tim

P.S. If you'd like to get in touch with me and have me get back in touch with you, please leave a contact email address in your message. 

New Alphabets Initiative! Please Help Us!

Big news! My students at the Champlain College Publishing Initiative are partnering with my Endangered Alphabets Project to publish four children's books in the endangered languages of the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh. 

We're launching a Kickstarter to fund the printing and shipping of these books, and we hope you'll support us. Saving these endangered languages and cultivating education within the Hill Tracts is not possible without your support. 

I'll be making carvings of thanks in one of these indigenous alphabets to anyone who supports us at the $250 level or higher.

Please head to our Kickstarter page at http://kck.st/1mZdPMZ and consider supporting our work. Thanks!
