Speaking of photography, my friends at the Vanderbilt Republic Foundation are making remarkable progress in their Kickstarter fundraising for their “Masters” project. They’re about three-quarters of the way to their goal, with 10 days remaining. They’ve already raised more money than any other Kickstarter project to date, but they’re not there yet, and Kickstarter’s gimmick is that it’s all-or-nothing.
This is a grand, ambitious, emotional project. If you’ve been waiting to help out, now’s the time. The best part: the VRF has received a $20,000 “challenge grant”:
If the VRF hits (or breaks) the $50,000 mark within the next 15
days, they’ll pledge 20K towards our cause. This also means that
between right now and October 3rd, every dollar pledged to the VRF
Pledge today and your donation will be doubled. Any amount will help; any amount will be doubled.
