Have you ever been in an argument and found yourself defending a position that, if you were being honest with yourself, you didn't really buy into, just because you weren't willing to admit you were wrong?
I was in just such a spot ten years ago when a small gift changed the trajectory of my life. While studying art at college, a friend's mom gave me a book by C.S. Lewis that pierced my conscience so directly, that I found myself with two choices:
- begin the hard work of ignoring it, or
- acknowledge the truth I'd just encountered and align my actions with my belief.
The goal of this project is to put that same book, Mere Christianity, in the hands of 1000 college students. I plan to fund the project (buying books to give away) with revenue from the sale of artwork inspired by C.S. Lewis' writing, so once the project gets momentum, it will be self-sustaining.
Your help in getting it off the ground and in front of others could result in hundreds of young adults being exposed to logical Truth for the first time in their lives.
How you can help...
I'm seeking backers to help offset some of the initial cost of promoting the project. This includes the Chewy Lewis Project website, promotional materials like t-shirts, and delivering paintings to venues where they will be visible to folks who will be likely to support the project, or spread the word of its existence to others.
If I raise more than 200% of the goal, I plan to use the excess funds to professionally document the response of students who read the book (and agree to go on camera and discuss it and its impact).
Other ways to help...
Thanks for your interest in the project! Even if you can't back it financially, follow it on Facebook, Twitter, and the website, and share liberally...or use the IndieGoGo share links. One of the Facebook fans or Twitter followers will be randomly chosen to win a print on Sunday, September 9th!
