Help Me Fund My Dream!

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll have seen lots of pictures of lots of different things, mostly monkeys and bad shirts. However on February 4th of this year I have the chance to do something which is both incredible and historic.

On February 4th Andrew Green and I will be travelling to Nairobi to join the campaign of Raila Odinga, who is vying for the presidency of Kenya. I’ve done political coverage before (here’s a PDF of my work covering the Democratic Party campaign in Uganda in 2011) and now I’m going for the big leagues. Andrew, my caption writer and long-time accomplice, will be doing the writing while I provide the snaps.

I’ve started a funding campaign (or digital begging bowl, whichever you prefer) on Indiegogo, a funding website. I can’t really afford to do this project without some help, so what I’m asking is:

If you’ve enjoyed reading/looking at the nonsense I’ve served up for you over the past four years, please head over to this page here -> http://www.indiegogo.com/kenyapolitics and drop a penny in my hat. I will be forever grateful to you (that includes everybody I’m already eternally grateful to) and you’ll be giving me a chance to do something worth the writing.

Thank you all so much.

      We did, I’m afraid… Can you send me your contacts via email? Next time I’m there I will probably have more time, and it would be great to meet up!
