We met our first goal of $10,000!!!! In only 2.5 days!! 

In the first few hours of the campaign when donations and excitement started pouring in, I found myself weeping over my keyboard. This project is a labor of love, with an all-volunteer team, and it is so meaningful that our communities believe in the need for this work too. Thank you so so much, for your support, for your faith--and for your enthusiasm! A much-appreciated reminder that we are doing something right.

We now have enough to fund the tarot cards. But we don't have enough yet to fund the entire issue of *Open in Emergency,* which includes 4 additional parts: a hacked DSM: Asian American Edition, a testimonial tapestry, a treated pamphlet on postpartum depression, and handwritten daughter-to-mother letters. Please continue sharing this campaign with your networks so that we can reach our stretch goal of $15,000 and get the entire issue out into the world!--including donations of copies to spaces of need.

Thank you!!!!!

      Thank you for spearheading this important project! Couldn't help but immediately throw my money at it when I got the first email about this Kickstarter campaign. :)

      Question: I see that you guys have a fairly large staff, but do you guys ever have a need for additional volunteers? I live in the DC area and work in editorial, and I would love to volunteer my time and skills. I realize that money is the most important thing in for nonprofits (I work for a nonprofit, so I totally get it!), but barring that, is there any other way I can help?

      Thank you again!!
