$700 for a day ain’t bad. This is the amount Sea Shepherd has raised since yesterday via kickstarter for the printing costs of their new vegan cookbook „Think! Eat! Act! A Sea Shepherd Chef’s Vegan Cookbook“. Since they collect for some days already there are by now alltogether some $5.000 on the projecct’s account. The 192 page full color book will be in the stores from April on.
Have you ever ask yourself (probably you have) what those activists get served while being out on month‘ long adventurous journeys saving the marine’s wildlife? So you may be curious like me what the new cookbook will reveal. Be patient.
$5.000 that is already a bit more than the primarily announced goal of $3000 which is the difference to the costs of what Sea Shepherd has spent by now for their publications. Remember its 192 pages and it is in full color. That is good news. And there are still 31 days left. What to do with the extra money. Sea Shepherd is going to order more copies of „Think! Eat! Act! A Sea Shepherd Chef’s Vegan Cookbook“ to put in a bigger stock. There will also be a better quality bookcover and a better book-stitching. As of this the original calculated costs of around $10.000 will peak a bit higher. Therefore everybody will receive a much more elaborated piece of work. With its 192 pages it will be the longest full color book in the organisation’s history to date, anyway.
With the 31 days left runtime of the kickstarter project you still have the opportunity to add some of your money to the project’s funds. What you get out of it: par example, for a pledge of $25 or more you get a copy of „THINK! EAT! ACT!“ in paperback which is estimated to be delivered to you in earn more about the details of your renumeration visit the „cookbooks“ project site on kickstarter.
There is another thing well worth to mention: as today many books especially those colored ones are being printed in lowcost China „Think! Eat! Act! A Sea Shepherd Chef’s Vegan Cookbook“ will save jobs at home and will be printed in a worker-owned printshop in the USA.
