Redmond WA (PRWEB) September 28, 2005
Since hurricane Katrina hit, Paradoxal Press (and Sebastien St-Laurent its owner) wanted to find a way to help the victims of the hurricane. Although giving money personally would help, they decided to launch an innovative fundraising approach where you can help the victims the hurricane by buying tiles of The Hope Mosaic.
The following is an extract from an interview with its founder: ÂI have launched in an effort to raise funds for victims of the hurricane in a new, groundbreaking and innovative way. The Hope Mosaic is a 1000x1000 image broken down into 8x8 mosaic tiles. To participate, each donation of $20 will buy you one tile on the mosaic. We will put in the tiles you purchased the image of your choice as well as link it to the URL of your liking.
Whether you want to use it to promote your own website, spread a message of hope or simply help out with the relief effort. The Hope Mosaic will set internet history by bringing help in a collective way. Our goal is to fill the mosaic which would allow me (and Paradoxal Press) to contribute over $300,000 to the relief and rebuilding efforts.
If you cannot contribute financially, PLEASE help us by spreading the word. Tell your friends, family, your co-workers or post a link on your website or blog. The quicker the word spreads, the quicker we can rebuild the affected cities!Â
Paradoxal Press and Sebastien St-Laurent will donate the proceeds of TheHopeMosaic to local relief charities and the Red Cross as funds come in and hope to raise in excess of $300,000 dollars for the relief effort while making internet history.
