Weekly Newsletter #76: Just Two Weeks Left of Our Kickstarter

There are just two weeks left for our Kickstarter to reach its funding goal! We’re 33 percent funded and can’t thank our backers enough for their support and generous contributions so far.

Donations start at a dollar and every reward receives art – commissions start at $25! If we surpass our funding goal, we will donate the surplus to both the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the George Floyd Memorial.

Your support will enable our community to launch its very own merch store and keep growing. Please help us spread the word about our campaign.

We want you to support these organizations and individuals with us.
