Last Chance: Magic Fish Dreaming Pledges

The kickstarter has just 3 days to go.

We are currently at $9491AUD and would love to make it to $10,000AUD if we can – Anything more would be amazing as we would dearly like to print the book hard cover, but we are so thrilled with how much we have been able to raise for our project.

We are preparing our thank you honour roll blog and have been already saying lots of thank yous.  We think maybe it needs to include its own special poem.

We may still look at a few more  creative ways to fund our project up to hard cover level if we can, so keep a look out for future announcements.

To visit the Kickstarter and Pledge for a Book  click here.  KICKSTARTER LINK

For our overseas and blog fans on a budget, there is a $10AUD PDF option and there is still a chance to purchase a top level reward, art by Helene, workshops, Cassowary, education kits.  And don’t forget two books, two calico bag special, and we may have another special tomorrow morning! So look out for that.

We are going to organise and online and real space launch for later in the year, for those who can make it.  We look forward to a very special event for our launch.

A big thank you to everyone who has been following our journey.
