Agaya and ubuntu, beloved Novasutras community!
I am making a personal plea for you to contribute funds or buy merchandise to support the early stages of growth for the Novasutras movement. You can also become a member on Patreon to provide ongoing support for the health and growth of the Novasutras movement. Creating the website and other content takes time, equipment, software, skill and energy. I’m doing all I can with the resources I have available, but these are very limited, so growth is very slow. An influx of new resources will help speed this growth, improving the chances for survival and success of the movement.
So far, I’m the only creator working on this. I’ve set up this PayPal.me/Novasutras option to gather the first flush of one-time funding. I’ve also posted some Novasutras merchandise for sale on RedBubble, including T-shirts, totes, notebooks, stickers, mugs and more! If you choose to become a member on Patreon, you receive special access to community conversations (and other perks for greater commitments) to thank you for your ongoing support of the Novasutras movement. I am relying on your trust in me to use these funds wisely to grow the movement and do even more. I will be as transparent as possible about how the funds are being used.
With your initial support and encouragement, we can get set up as an official non-profit organization, so we can do more effective fund-raising. I welcome your help and suggestions with developing other ways to receive the financial resources we will need to operate in the cultural environment that surrounds us for now.
So, will you please help me midwife and nurture the Novasutras community into a movement that can change the world. I deeply appreciate anything you can contribute to this cause.
Ubuntu and agaya,
Dr. Michelle Y. Merrill
