I want to publish a book of photographs I made in collaboration with children in one neighborhood in Ethiopia since 1999.

86% There ... New Ambitions

Posted by Eric Gottesman (Creator)

Dear Friends,

It is so exciting, and humbling, to see everyone's response to this campaign.  I know I keep saying it but thank you thank you thank you.  

We are just over the 2-week mark and almost to our initial goal.  I am already imagining that we can raise much more than the minimum we need by September 10.  I don't want to count our chickens before they hatch, BUT.... if we raise more money than our goal, we can have better production value on the book and much wider distribution of the book in Ethiopia.  If you have any ideas of how to reach more people, please send them along as I continue to reach out to potential partners.  Also, I've added a few more rewards and will be brainstorming what else to add ..... so if anyone has any requests, let me know.

More very soon,


PS. Here is a radio interview I did this week about the project and promoting our campaign on NPR.
