Wow! That's the sound that follows as a truly amazed member of the Lomography team checks how many Kikuyu Books have been purchased over the last 2 weeks - a grand total of 219, which amounts to over 1300 EUR/USD raised!
With 657 EUR/USD raised from book sales since last week, matched by Lomography, the raised total thus far is 1314 EUR/USD!
The money goes towards training Kenyan doctors so that they are able to perform cataract surgeries. And the more doctors that are trained, the more patients that can can be seen to!
Did you know that the Kikuyu Book is only 5 EUR/USD? You can check it out, through to Checkout, in our shop!
This is because Lomography wants you to have access to the information, the photos, the tales of overcoming long waits coupled with worsening vision. We want to make it easy for you to share this knowledge with others, show your copy of the Kikuyu book to as many others as possible, at home, work or constantly changing hands in a book swap program!
Don’t forget your donations are MATCHED by Lomography to help fight the famine in East Africa through the International Committee of the Red Cross – so that’s 5 EUR/USD to the Kikuyu project and 5 EUR to the Red Cross.
A heartfelt thanks to all for helping the cause and spreading the word. We hope to help as many people in East Africa with the sales of the Kikuyu Book as possible – and without you our goal is being achieved! So keep on sharing your experiences with the book as we’ll be sure to do our part!
We encourage you to read more and consequently inform yourselves and others about Lomo Kikuyu!
