You can take this donkey home...if

Wouldn't you love to have a donkey-maybe in the kitchen, or bedroom? This art might be yours if you pledge at $25 or more, or up your current pledge by $25 or more.

It is crunch time! 25 days to go and we still need over $6,000 but we had a good boost this week and are 54% funded. [Thank you to everyone who got us here so far!]

I Need You! Here is how it works.

New pledgers:For each $25 you pledge, your name will be on a slip of paper, and placed in the donkey's bucket. SO if you pledge $75, your names gets put on three pieces of paper and dropped into the bucket. Keep in mind for each $25 you pledge, if funded, you also get three of the books when printed.

If you already have pledged:For each $25 increase you make on your current pledge, your name will go into the donkey's bucket. And yes, each additional $25 gets you another copy of the book once funded and printed. In addition: I also plan to do another surprise name pulling out of the donkey bucket for those that have already pledged to date and increase their pledge. So some of you that up your pledge might have a surprise in the mail after the project funds [note the positivity in that].

As always The Head Troll will pick the name out of the bucket and that person gets the art [this will happen after funding] [9x13", acrylic on heavy watercolor paper, retail value $850+].

I know some of you won't be able to increase your pledge $25 or more and that is okay. But the days are waning. If you can pledge another $10, or SHARE this project on blogs and social media-it is so appreciated. I really mean that-it means so much each time a pledge comes in or a word of encouragement. Fundraising on a deadline is not for the weak or whiny.
