So a good friend of mine brought this cause to my attention and with just a day or so to go they have reached their goal on kickstarter but I thought maybe some of you would feel like helping out.
This is a letter that they sent out earlier in the week that sums up the cause:
My dear friend, Dallas Graham, has created an inspirational publishing project giving critically ill children a voice. It’s called the Red Fred Project. He plans to publish 50 books created by 50 children with critical illnesses across the 50 states.
Dallas created the Red Fred Project after he learned about a friend’s child who was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Having worked with terminally ill children previously, through photo-documentary projects, he merged the idea of having a child tell a story with a set of birds he had designed from commas and exclamation marks, named The Jolly Troop.
As a long time & close friend, I want to help him reach his funding goal! I believe this is worthwhile & have loved getting involved in. To help him with fundraising, I’m sharing a link to his Kickstarter campaign. You can watch his video and learn about donating to the project by clicking on this link:
If Dallas raises the funds for his goal, or surpasses the goal, the project will be funded; if he is $1 short of the funding goal by the time the campaign ends, no money leaves any donor’s account. It’s all or nothing!
All pledges are tax-deductible & he has 7 days left to raise approximately $45K.
