C44 Annual Fundraiser + NEW Photo Book NOW only $89.00!
Thanks so much in advance for your generous support!
It's a very wet and very rainy Wednesday morning here in Quang Ngai, Vietnam. We had a brief but powerful storm last night that soaked the kitchen over at Lien Anh's sister's place. This all comes with the Southeast Asian territory. Rainy season is here. Just gotta get used to it.
My new website is up now and I'm happy to present links to many of my friends' businesses (mainly from Ashland and around the Southern Oregon area). Love the love as they say and share the wealth. There is a bunch of interesting content up there and the site will continue to grow. I will have my top “reading choices” up there in the next few days as well. The Harry Potter series will still reign king on that list.
There are only 19 days left in my C44 Annual Fundraiser (Paypal) and I'm less than 10% to my goal of $3,000.00. I know many of you get a little or a lot tired of my requests for monetary support and I totally understand that. However, I am not asking for handouts as if I am not contributing to the world. Frankly, as a Creative Content ContributorI I feel that I'm completely justified in seeking donations for my FREE C44 podcast and FREE downloadable photography available on Substack.
I have not actually worked since June (my choice, of course) and currently this is my sole source of income (for the moment). Thankfully, I live in one of the most inexpensive countries in the world and do not really spend much on anything beyond necessities. That being said, for anyone who makes a donation of $200.00 or more to the C44 Annual Fundraiser, I will send them my NEW Photo Book "PEACE and LOVE from Vietnam" for FREE. It was originally priced at $99.00, but I've dropped the price to $89.00 which includes shipping anywhere in the US.
And just so you know, these on-demand, online printed books cost me around $70.00 each including shipping. I'm making almost no money on them and donating 10% of my profit to Blue Dragon Children's Foundation. As a matter of fact, I'm paying for them on a credit card so I can keep the cash and pay off the card later. Yup, I'm a crazy fucking bastard! However, I'm doing this out of pure love and not total stupidity. Eventually, I will find a publisher or self-publish and get them printed at a far more reasonable price. But for now, this is what I'm doing. Below is a link both to the Photo Book and the C44 Fundraiser. I am working on a Vietnamese language version to be printed here which costs less than half the price. Checking into shipping abroad.
