Our volunteer John to publish his Armenian book!

1 min read

I awoke with one of those ideas that would not allow me to fall back to sleep. Whenever an individual is struck with such an idea, it is their duty to see it to fruition. My idea is a simple but powerful one. I am currently writing a book where each page will have a single portrait, and underneath the photo, I will list the individual’s age, profession, their definition of happiness, and advice they wish to share. I have already interviewed all kinds of interesting individuals at the first and only developmental elderly center in Yerevan. Next week I will interview wounded soldiers and the contrast/similarities between the different generations is where I imagine the magic will take place. I can really envision this project coming to life while I am still here in Armenia.


How to support?


I am asking for any size donations to publish my project the way I picture it should be without unnecessary limitations. I am in no way executing my vision for profit, but I must be realistic. By helping me you are helping others and when I finish the book, I will set up a system for part of the proceeds to help the people of Armenia. Additionally, any GoFundMe funds not needed for the publication of my book will be divided among other volunteer efforts here in Armenia.
