Cover Costs for Charity Album

$280 of $4,000 goal

Dear online friends, fans, and neighbors,
Now that I've decided that my album of songs will have all the proceeds go to charity (ChildHelp to be specific), I need to cover the direct costs of making the album in order to not go into debt to help the cause. Hmmm. That sentence was very confusing even for me, so let me try again.
I'm Stan Stewart, a musician who has been writing songs for many years, but have never released an album of original songs. (I have lots of music -- mostly improvised -- available , but not songs with lyrics.) In 2015, I decided to record my 10 favorite original songs and turn them into an album. 10 became 11. I plan to call the album "Dream This".
And then our world was hit with the worst bullying and hate crimes I can remember. So, I decided it was important to me to donate the proceeds from my album to a charity that works to make the world a better place. I chose ChildHelp which aims to help end child abuse. I think you'll agree that's a worthy cause.
However, as the album approaches readiness for release, my credit card bills have been a stark reminder about the costs of creating an album even in these times.
What I'm asking for here is help covering the actual expenses of releasing this album so that I can be free and clear to send all the sales proceeds to charity. As you'll see in one of my updates, I'm still contributing to the costs as well as the creativity in this project.
Thanks for your help!
Wishing you many rich blessings,
Stan

I'm glad that folks want to contribute to the charity (ChildHelp) once this album comes out. And in order to make my contribution to that worthy cause, I've gone into debt recording and preparing to publicize "Dream This" charity album. What I'm asking for here is help getting back out of debt and helping to make this a great success in every way. Would you be willing to contribute? If you don't have the money, please share this campaign with your friends! And thank you for your support.

"Dream This" charity album already has its own T-shirt. Well, not its own since _you_ get to wear it if you contribute to this crowdfunding campaign. Here's a sneak peek.

Geeky side note: The audio waveform in the image is from the introduction to "Snow Story" (one of the songs on the album).

Thanks for the contributions so far! Please be sure to share this crowdfund with your friends and social networks.
Here's a quick inventory of costs that I've already paid or will soon incur for my upcoming album. As you can see, $4,000 is not the total cost. I'll still be covering $3,200 (plus all the costs I haven't thought of yet).
Thanks again for your support and keep spreading the word!
