A high-pitched scream of utmost gratitude to all that have contributed to our Animalia Pozible campaign. In an exhilarating period of just over 66 hours, we reached our initial marker, and even a little more. This means, as you know, our journal project is officially HAPPENING! We can’t even begin to thank everyone enough. Champagne is necessary; lucky it’s a Sunday.
In particular, Critical Animals would like to extend our thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Gillian, Mike and Jennifer McAuliffe. We look forward to working with the Bold Park Community School in the future.
The bubbly tastes sweet, but it could taste sweeter. I look at the calender and see we have 27 days to go. http://www.pozible.com/ca13 is still live and still accepting pledges. There are still over 60 journals that we’ve allocated to our incentive initiative. Our initial set target will just cover costs, and even then, only by the tightest of margins. Due to the overwhelming amount of support we’ve received, we’ve reevaluated our strategic plan and would like to stretch it further to make the production quality of Critical Animalia as outstanding as it’s proposed content. The more pledges we receive, the richer the printed page quality, the more pages we can print, the more copies we can produce. A Decade between Disciplines might be a limited print, but we’d like to print as many as possible. We’re also currently set for black and white print – with further support we can even think about color printing, which is something we never really thought possible.
If you can, we urge you, please keep pledging, and encouraging others that you know to do so too. We’re absolutely thrilled as to where we’re at at the moment and plan to channel this enthusiasm into making this project the best it can be.
Thanks again, and again, and again, and again,
