What a week?! This week we’ve covered a whole range of stories, from Egypt to the NHS. The biggest thing in my week was launching the first Scriptonite Daily crowdfunding campaign. The campaign has so far been backed by The Artist Taxi Driver, New Internationalist, Brighton’s Green MP Caroline Lucas and Max Keiser.
Tomorrow I’m launching a new reward for those donating to the project. There will be five places on the delegation to Palestine in October 5th-19th 2013 to make the documentary. You’ll be an active part of the team, meeting peacemakers, war makers and everyone in between across Gaza, the West Bank and Israel. Places will be available for a donation of £800. I am also offering one place in the delegation to one of the next 100 donors to the project – their name will be chosen at random.
I went on my first delegation to Palestine in 2002 and it changed my life forever. It was one of the most formative moments of my life, both politically and personally. I would love to share this experience with you. So, if you can afford £800, do it. If you can’t, why not donate a £1 or whatever you can and take a chance on your name being pulled out of the hat?
In the mean time, a reminder why we’re doing all this fundraising right now. It’s to keep these stories coming. So here is the week’s news:
