The first week got off to a great start with $1,160 coming in the first 4 days! I want to thank everyone who has helped so far by donating and getting the word out. I would like to give a special thanks to MagCulture, The Magaziner, Iconology, SPD, Newmanology, Selectism, Lost At E Minor, Day of The Dreamweavers, and anyone else who has blogged about the fundraiser so far. We still have a long ways to go and I'm still having trouble letting people know, so if anyone can help me in getting some more coverage that would be great.
I'd also like to let you know that I have the first three interviews setup, one I've already shared with you, Miranda July, the other two are Neon Indian and musician/actor/legend John Lurie have agreed to be a part of the next issue. I'm also working at getting many more great names involved but haven't confirmed anything yet.
If you'd like some more background information on the project, I wrote a rather lengthy post going into more detail about the next issue and what I plan on making with your donations. You can read it here.
Thank you again for help kicking this off and have a great weekend.
