Hello everyone! First my apologies this is running so late. I have so much to do and so little time!
A recap: While Womanthology was always to be for Charity, because of the success of the Kickstarter I was able to print a LOT more books for regular distribution in stores/Amazon/ etc. ALL of the money earned from those sales goes to various Charites on GlobalGiving.org .
To date, we have earned $34,000 in Womanthology sales! :D We have already delegated $10,000 of those funds to help Educate 1,000 Girls in Pakistan following the tragic shooting of MalalaYousafzai.
We have $24,000 left to distribute! Everyone was invited to nominate Charities from Global Giving as recipients of the funds, and the list is below for anyone interested to check out. The female creators of Womanthology will then VOTE on which ones will get the funding.
WOMANTHOLOGY CREATORS: You will receive an email soon with instructions on how to vote! So keep an eye out! :D You may want to check out all the Charities and plan out who you want to vote for (it will have multiple choice)
KICKSTARTER BACKERS: All of these Charities can possibly be helped because of YOUR support. Thank you thank you THANK YOU! :)
(NOTES: the amounts to the left are what's LEFT in those campaigns, and if you see the note "Can Fully Fund" then it means those causes have little funding so far, yet we can fully fund them if chosen). Also as you can see, depending on what's chosen, we can use the 24K to fulfill many or a few Charities!
