I want to publish a book of photographs I made in collaboration with children in one neighborhood in Ethiopia since 1999.
121 backers pledged $13,452 to help bring this project to life.

We did it!! Let's keep going for 200%...

Dear friends,

First, as before, thank you so much for your support. Please continue your support by reposting the kickstarter campaign on your Facebook, twitter, etc: This will drive even more people to look at our site and, hopefully, consider supporting the project.

On Tuesday night, we surpassed our initial goal with still a month left to go. I never thought this would happen so quickly but I am thrilled it did; I never knew how many people this project touched outside of Ethiopia.

Last week, I met with curators, artists, publishers and bookbinders on the west coast and had some amazing conversations about what we can do with the book. The more I learn, the more I understand how creative it can get. For instance, if we raise a bit more money, we can put out a special edition of the book that I will design with Sudden Flowers in Addis Ababa when I am in Ethiopia later this year and that will include even more of the material. We will be distribute this special edition throughout Ethiopia using the funds we raise here. 

So that is the next goal. Let's keep the momentum moving! More updates to follow!

Thank you so so so much,
