Beautiful Trouble will be a book & web toolbox that puts the best practices of creative action in your hands.
246 backers pledged $13,700 to help bring this project to life.

Beautiful Trouble is funded! Just in time for the revolution!

We did it! Thanks to the generous support of 232 backers and counting, we’ve surpassed our $12K funding target by almost a thousand dollars, with two days still to go. We now have the resources we need to see this sprawling, massive undertaking through to completion. Thank you!

The need for this sort of resource has never been greater: the #occupy movement is making great strides in creative activism, bringing in thousands of emerging and veteran activists, many of whom are hungry for creative tools and resources to help them build a vibrant, effective, sustainable movement.

We’ll be working furiously over the next couple of months to finalize the book and build the website, but thanks to your support, we won’t be scrounging around in the cushions of our couches to raise the cash to make it happen. From the bottom of our troublesome hearts, thank you.

On behalf of the Beautiful Troublemakers, with gratitude,

Andrew Boyd

p.s. If you still want to kick in and get some great rewards, there are still a couple of days left in our kickstarter campaign. Any additional $ raised will go towards the web component of the project -- an evolving web toolbox that will be available to all.
