I’ve never crowdfunded anything before, so this is a risky experiment for me, but one that I hope will provide the necessary resources and time to properly research, write, and produce my upcoming book, From Outrage to Action: A Practical Guide to Fighting Antisemitism. More importantly, this Kickstarter campaign is about creating a community effort with rewards that go beyond the usual offerings.
I found that there are no comparable books on this subject on Kickstarter. While there are Jewish-related comic books, children’s books, religious texts, and some poetry, none tackle the issue of antisemitism in any direct way. So, this is new for Kickstarter, too, and I hope to validate this kind of important crowdfunding campaign.
Kickstarter campaigns feature a series of rewards for backers. While I’ll have the standard rewards like digital downloads, signed paperback books, and an audiobook edition, I wanted to offer something more engaging and interactive. This project is not just about producing a book; it’s about fostering discussion and giving you the opportunity to contribute your own stories and ideas.
Here are some of the rewards I’m considering:
