Thanks to all the generous donors to our Indiegogo campaign, “Get the Ringbearer to Illinois,” we made nearly half of the money we needed to travel to a wedding in Illinois, where my son is supposed to be the ringbearer. This morning, before he left for work, my husband and I put our heads together and did some number crunching. After plenty of debate (and a few tears), we realized that the only way way to make the trip possible will be for my husband to stay home and for me and our little ringbearer, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda, to fly out by ourselves.
It will still be costly, and while we have the airfare covered, we could still use some help with the hotel room, food, and a car rental. With that in mind, I’m offering a special one-time ebook, which be available as a PDF in May, following the April 20 wedding. The book, tentatively titled, “Now with Kung-Fu Action Grip,” will feature the following:
* Poetry written during my pregnancy with KFP
* Selected blog entries, essays, and humor pieces and poetry about KFP
* Several essays about parenting
* The story of our adventures traveling to the wedding, complete with photos from the trip and from the wedding
There is no set donation amount needed to receive “Now with Kung-Fu Action Grip.” We’re grateful for any amount you wish to contribute. Help us make this the best trip to date of his young life!
