Tasi's Art Book Sale for Med Bills!
$420 of $2,000 goal
Jason Tasi was admitted into Athens Regional on September 6th, where he was treated for pneumonia and heart concerns. He was released September 8th and is back home with his family.
The doctors told him to rest for a while, take care of himself, and focus on getting better.
Problem is, his bills aren't going to pay themselves.
Jason is a person who would do anything in his power for a person in need, and treat them like family while doing it, even if he's just met them. No one is a stranger to Tasi.
This is an opportunity to give back to someone who means so much to so many of us!
The campaign is simple.
For $20, you can grab a copy of Tasi's art book (regularly on Amazon.com for $30 ).
Since we're skipping bookstores and middlemen, ALL FUNDS besides printing costs and GoFundMe's fees*, go DIRECTLY to Jason and Megan.
When you buy a book for $20:
$13.00 goes to IngramSpark, the printing company. $2 goes to GoFundMe, and $5 goes to Jason.
But printing gets cheaper the more books are bought.
If 100 people buy a book, Jason gets $5.80 a piece, for a total of $580.
If 250 people buy a book, Jason gets $6.60 a piece, for a total of $1,650!
If 500 people buy a book, Jason gets $7.40 a piece, for a total of $3,700!!
Show some love by investing in this campaign! If you can't invest, the second best way you can show your love is by SHARING this event to everyone you know!!
-*- Can I donate more than $20?
YES! Donate however much you'd like.
-*- Can I donate and not get a book, so my money goes to Jason?
YES! Except GoFundMe still wants their cut, so Jason will get about $18 for every $20 donation.
-*- How much of this money is going to the publisher or the person who launched this event?
None. We're helping out a family that's special to me and my family. Tasi has forever memorialized some really important events in our life.
-*- When, and how, will I get my book?
We haven't decided how long we'll let this campaign stay up, but I'm waiting to order books until I know how many total I'm ordering. I'd prefer to order (for example) 100 rather than 99 or less because they'll be cheaper at that point. Once they're ordered, we'll have them within two weeks then I'm going to reach out to everyone who bought one and tell them how to get their book. As I mentioned above, I don't want to ship the books, because that's an added expense that takes money from what Tasi's getting.
(I'll post more questions and answers here as they arise!)
*GoFundMe fees =
%5 of every donation goes to GoFundMe.
%2.9 + $0.30 goes to WePay.
We raised $420 by 15 donators. After GoFundMe expenses, that comes to $382.34. I ordered books (13 people are getting a book) and it came to roughly $181, leaving $200 to go directly to Tasi.
Books are ordered and being printed now. I'm going to contact each of you that's getting a book on your personal email address as soon as they come in.
Wanted to send out a quick word to you guys. I'm ending the campaign today and ordering books. I'll contact you with details on how long it will take and how to get your book as soon as I have info on it.
Thanks again for your support. I'm glad we could get Tasi some respite from the bills. Glad we can get more of his art into the world (and not just on our own skin!)
I'm going to set an end-date for this GoFundMe page for October 5th, so we can get these books ordered for you guys and get the funds you've pledged to Tasi.
I appreciate your help so far. I know Tasi does, too. Every bit helps. Also, I'm glad his books are getting out in the world.
Thanks for your patience on getting your books! Thanks for supporting Jason in this!
Time for one final push! If you know anyone who might be interested in buying a book or just donating to the big man, share this with them!
Wanted to thank all of you for supporting so far. We're at 9 books sold, $240 total donations. I'd love to get this to 100 books sold, or $2k in donations, whatever comes first.
If you haven't bought a book, do it! If you can't buy a book for whatever reason, or if you already bought one, share this with someone else who might be interested!
