Projects

Charity
Donation

When I reflect on the two years of my travels, I remember how good it also felt to help other people in less fortunate financial situations. Not extreme sums of money, but a little support here and there that would help them to buy a meal, new clothes, or school material for their kids. I really enjoyed those moments of sharing, especially in the poorer countries, as they brought them, and in turn also me, so much joy.

I have decided to pledge a portion of the sales proceeds for donations and charitable purposes and each one of you can vote on which specific projects we will donate to and help to implement in the future. There is no reason why I should decide this myself—we are all part of this enterprise now.

Each book contains a QR code and passcode with which you will have access to vote on the website. An interactive way of reader involvement. Jointly supporting the people in need around the world. Welcome to a new era of print utility and governance.

To see and vote on the pre-selected list of projects, please scan the book’s QR code or enter the passcode here – you will then be redirected to the voting page.
