What is Ubuntu? Kickstarter by Ashley Strong“… It is the essence of being human.  It speaks of the fact that my humanity is caught up and is inextricably bound up in yours.  I am human because I belong.  It speaks about wholeness, it speaks about compassion.”

– Desmond Tutu on Ubuntu

Hi everyone,

We have been struggling with what to write in this email.  The timing of it feels awkward.  Everywhere we turn there are reminders that Friday’s tragic shooting has caused national heartbreak.  Yet, even though we are likewise feeling it deeply, we need to highlight our “What is Ubuntu?” Kickstarter t-shirt campaign because it ends this coming Tuesday, December 18th, 4p PST and we are only $240 short of our goal.

Despite our inner conflict, here goes.

We are a teeny-tiny little grassroots organization trying to do something helpful in the world.

The t-shirts featured in Kickstarter were created as a way to increase the number of people that understand what “Ubuntu” is, and so we could create a line of t-shirts where proceeds will help fund Trauma Recovery for Refugees.

We would love to see more people walking around wearing t-shirts that feature beautiful photographs along with words like, Interconnectedness, Empathy, Compassion, Authenticity, and Forgiveness, accompanied by inspirational phrases.

In Kickstarter there are no partially funded campaigns, it’s all or nothing.  The campaign ends this coming Tuesday, December 18th 4p PST, and as of right now, we are $240 short of our $1000 goal.

We know it’s the Holiday Season and odds are your bank account and credit cards have already been really busy lately.  Yet, if you can help us reach the goal, we would personally be extremely grateful for your generosity.

Thank you,
