THE GREAT LAKES BOOK PROJECT BEGINS ITS KICKSTARTER FUNDING CAMPAIGN
December 19, 2012
The Great Lakes Book Project, a collection of 27 individually-authored works of creative non-fiction about The Great Lakes, is proud to announce that it has begun its initial advertising growth campaign. Kickstarter.com, the popular Internet fundraising platform, has accepted the book into its program and the endeavor was launched at 4pm on Tuesday, December 18th, 2012. As a gift to those who support the book, The Great Lakes Book Project is giving away copies of the book, e-book, vials of water from the Great Lakes, and original oil paintings depicting scenes from the stories that fill the project in exchange for donations of 7, 17, 20, 50, and 100 dollars, respectively.
The campaign is scheduled to run until January 17th, with a final goal of 3,000 dollars that, if received, will be used to further promote the book in its journey into the hands of eager readers. In addition to supplying them with over two dozen brilliant literary works, The Great Lakes Book Project is also donating 15% of the proceeds from the books sale to Alliance for the Great Lakes, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the region’s freshwater.
