FUNDRAISER: Update 2015-05-01

Here are some current stats:

We have just crossed the $6000 line, coming from 182 sales of the People in the Himalayas photo ebook. That’s an average of over $30 per ebook sale.

The payments come in through two main channels: PayPal and Stripe (that’s what we use to handle credit card payments), depending on what the customer chose in our online shop.

PayPal is the quickest path and the bulk of whatever we receive through that channel goes out with as little delay as possible. So far we have donated $3000 to and $1000 to from this bucket. We have also made two direct payments to people in need, you can read more on that here and here.

The credit card payments through Stripe will come in with a delay (it’s a 7 day sliding window), so we don’t have access to those funds just yet. We will donate those as they become available and keep updating you here.

Thanks again for your continued support, we are humbled by your help!
