Update on my Sistah Vegan PhD Fund Raising Campaign As of June 16, 2011:
I have received $3000 out of the $10,000 I need to complete my goal to help fund me to finish my dissertation on critical race vegan studies. That is really inspiring since I initially posted my call for help on May 24.
I am $7000 away from meeting my goal. Here is information and a video about me losing my PhD fellowship renewal for 2011-12 and how you can help me out. Deadline to Meet Goal: September 2011 (so I Can register for 2011-2012 academic year)
I know the goal may seem overwhelming, but I have about a combined support network/friends/followers of 1000 people (through Facebook, blog subscribers, and Twitter followers). If you could spare $10 to $25 a piece, then this goal could be met I think.
Paypal email donation: breezeharper (at) gmail (dot) com or go to the right side top of the screen and click on donation link.
Other creative ways to help would be to buy a personalized signed copy of Sistah Vegan book directly from me if you don’t already have a copy or want to give it as a gift. Click on the image of the book on the right if you want to do that.
I also had one person ask if they can pay me to speak to their social justice group, via video Skype, for an hour. They agreed to pay me to do that, so that is another possibility.
I’m also open to doing paid talks and lectures that are no more than a 2 hour drive from where I live. Could fly out if I were not in my 3rd trimester, but driving there is still an option.
If you’re asking the question, “Why should I fund this woman? What has she done?” Please refer to my CV so you can see the type of person you are investing in and how ‘productive’ she can be 🙂
