A note on donations
I’ve noticed something recently concerning donations to back-to-iraq.com. People seem to think they need to be wealthy donors and give, I don’t know, $100 or more at a time. Au contraire! Every little bit helps, and PayPal and Amazon (to the right, over there) accept donations as small as $1. Don’t feel like you can’t help just because you’re not rich as Bill Gates. Kick in $10 or $5 or whatever. I will also accept checks, and if people want to mail them to me, I’ll post a PO Box for you.
I’m aiming for about $8,000 to $10,000, which would cover a sat phone, gas mask, atropine, insurance, travel and other expenses for a one to two month trip to Iraq. Donations so far total just under $100 and I’ve saved up a bit myself. I would like to have donations account for up to 20% of the cost of the expedition and I would make up the rest.
Thanks again for your support.
