I am working and Dovid has money coming in but we still seem to be living barely month to month. I have committed to saving $100/mo for the trip but with prescriptions Dovid may not be able to do that so I have been trying to think of other ways to earn money.
We don’t get enough hits to qualify to earn money from WordAds here on WordPress and unfortunately the Emuna Blogger can’t do AdSense from Google because I posted to click ads in the blog so… trying to see if my other Bloggers will qualify and am waiting for the review process to see if I can get another chance. With only 5 hits per day the Emuna blog was getting from $15-$20 per month. With five blogs we could get up to $100/mo extra if the review goes well. Please check out the Bloggers in the meantime so that Google can see that people have an interest.

I don’t really have the skill set for fund raising and now that I am out of my element and not in Phoenix it feels even harder so I am focusing more on web based fundraising this year. I am going to try a few different kinds of things to see what works best for us. We’ll be selling tee-shirts and doing crowd funding. I may open a CafePress store and some other print on demand fulfillment sites. I think doing something every other month would be the best way so that it isn’t overwhelming to us or the people who follow us.
The first fundraiser is tee-shirts. Please check it out: http://teespring.com/emuna1
There are tee shirts, long sleeved, and hoodies available. We need to sell at least 10 shirts by January 30, 2015 to get any funds. If you can’t get a shirt, please share the link above. Thanks!
CURRENT TRIP FUND TOTAL: $51
(The estimated total needed to go off port for Phase One is $2000)
I will periodically post the total of our trip fund. We need a LOT of supplies before we can ship out so if you would like to become a financial supporter other than via the organized fundraising, you can donate via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will update the supporters page (if you prefer to be anonymous, just mention that in the paypal notes).
Thanks so much for all your support!
