Our earth and its infinite biological variations and geological formations in the finest hours.
It’s here! My photo book of Nepal, made possible thanks to the generosity and of many.
This 20-page, lay-flat photo book measuring ~8.5 x 11.5″ / 21.5 x 29 cm with captions is crafted through tens upon tens of hours of envisioning, collaborations, love, and labor. I am really, really happy with it. I am also glad to have waited until this month to write the captions and compile it all together. I don’t believe I would have had as much cohesive ability to articulate the mountain load of memories and experiences in my 7 weeks in the Himalayan country. It truly was everything I could have imagined, and so much more.
I wish to take a moment to give gratitude to the 30+ backers on Indiegogo (https://igg.me/at/nepalconsciousimpact/) in making my autumn 2015 trip possible. This book is dedicated to you. And for a few of the contributors, this photo book will be on its way to you soon.
For friends & friends of friends who wish to further support me (once more) – please contact me for a(nother) copy! The cost is the same as on the fundraiser – $120 USD + shipping (between ~$3-10 depending on location), or $90 if you are ordering a second. Payments via Venmo/Google Wallet/Paypal/Square (firstname.lastname@example.org) are welcomed. Get it before I depart for Nepal on April 4. The campaign perks are active once more, if you wish to go through Indiegogo.
Also, I am super happy to report to all contributors and friends that the $900 that was allocated as a donation to Conscious Impact will be “recycled” in flying yours truly back to Kathmandu. For this return journey, I will do much of the same things as I did in autumn – assisting in building physically (we’ll be starting on one of the schools in April!), documenting the progress, providing the team with content that can be utilized across their communication and marketing platforms, and whatever else that comes up. I am going back with a sharper focus and desire to promote social good through social media, to further improve the new art of videography, and to continue living a simple, experience-based life. I’ll be volunteering and living in the village through 3 volunteer build groups (April, May, and June) until the monsoon season hits around mid-June. There are no set plans to return states-side. So after that, we shall see…
Dhanyabad (Nepali for thank you), and onwards!
