Help COMBAT PAPER on the road

$11,106 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 159 people in 25 months
Hello, I'm Drew Cameron, founding member of Combat Paper, a group of artist veterans who host workshops that transform military uniforms into handmade paper. We have a portable papermaking mill that has been traveling the country with a team of facilitators for nearly ten years!

Recently, my trusted touring van was stolen. Please help me raise the funds to replace my van. We have workshops planned for the coming months and years throughout the country and you can help us get there!

My plan is to match the funds raised through this campaign and reach my goal of a great vehicle for Combat Paper workshops that are beginning next spring. Every donation will help get the wheels turning again. 

For the years that we have been doing this work, I know it has had a positive and lasting impact on the veterans, friends, families and communities with whom we collaborate. It has changed my life for the better and opened a world of creativity that I passionately share with others. It has provided a meaningful way for people to connect and perpetuate our handmade paper craft. Please help us continue turning uniforms into paper!

It would be the best outcome for me to know that Combat Paper's mission will continue into the future with your support. Thank you!

Well we've done it! With your amazing support I was able to secure a new vehicle for Combat Paper workshops and related programming. This is a dream come true for me. After beginning this project a decade ago with no vision other than wanting to share the process of hand papermaking and the need to connect with others we have grown bit by bit into how we collaborate today. I know that our work is important to you as well, you can be assured that the workshops are abundant and ongoing. Uniforms Make Paper! Thank you from all of us who will be able to create more paper and share this process, we've done it with you. Hope to see you soon,
Drew
Thank You! Here's to the next 10 years!

We have passed 2/3 of the way--for the Combat Paper van / workshop fundraiser!

The goal for this fundraiser is to reconnect with another used van for all of the papermaking workshops we have planned and bringing the needed equipment that is for the setup of a portable paper mill. While traveling to the many dozens of events across the country over the years, so many of us have participated in this process. Our collective papermaking efforts continue to connect with others, recognizing the impacts from war and military in all of our lives.

If you could help send this campaign to anyone who had a positive experience with Combat Paper or would be willing to write about it and share the fundraiser.

Anything in the $5, 10, 20 would easily push us over the edge by sending this information around to the many people who are connected to this project. Getting the word out about our fundraiser is a massive help!

We are dedicated to hand papermaking. Through workshops people make connections, create artwork of their own and transform materials of war into handmade paper. I will use the vehicle to continue our efforts, with more uniforms into handmade paper today!

Looking forward to seeing you again!

We are about 2/3 of the way towards the goal for this fundraiser! Combat Paper workshops are about connections. The ones made between people through rendering military uniforms into handmade paper. The type of connections made when all of us have an equal role in engaging, for it is all of is who are effected by militarism and war. It is our shared responsibility and understanding of how we connect that builds our sense of solidarity. We are more connected than we are apart and a process that takes uniforms into paper is a place to build and discover new possibilities. These workshops have great meaning only because of the collaborative efforts of those involved. It is a model that works and is continuing to reach more people through the process. I'm committed to continue and with the overwhelming support from this campaign I know you are too. Thank you, hope to see you soon. --Drew
