    Pledge $1 or more About $1

    Please message me if you are low-income, a student, and/or don't have a credit card but would still like your name in the photo book credits. The suggested donation for a name credit is $10 but I will be adding everyone's name who pledges any amount or messages me about it. (As I understand that some middle school, high school and even college students don't have credit cards, and I still want you to somehow be part of the book!).
