Thanks for helping, and for joining us on our journey.
A) Subscribe, like us on Facebook and tell your friends. If our numbers are up, it may help us win corporate sponsorship. When you subscribe you'll get a confirming email – be sure to reply. After that you'll hear only from us with a short email when we post a new interview. We don't data-mine, or try to sell you anything.
B) We are in need of new equipment: Our digital SLR camera has a scratched lens (it was one hell of a sandstorm). We need to replace our 10-year-old Apple iMac, and our laptop needs repair or replacement. We'd love to have a second digital movie camera so we could get more interesting shots during the interviews. And we need to get new film editing software to be able to edit better. If you prefer to give us something concrete (perhaps you have something you want to pass along, or can get things cheaply) please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
C) If you are a composer or musician who can provide a cut of your music that might be appropriate for the beginning of an interview film and wish to donate its use, we'd love to use a snippet and credit you on the interview film. Again, please contact us at email@example.com.
D) Do you know, or know of, a fabulous full-time writer who belongs in an archive about the art of writing? Please send us suggestions/information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
B) If you prefer to use a credit or debit card you may call 503.305.6729 to donate by phone. If you prefer to donate on line, you can go to the Willamette Writers Donations page and follow up with an email to email@example.com or a phone call to let them know it goes to Authors Road. (A new website is in the offing that will make this process easier.)
Willamette Writers accepts Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

This journey is a dream, and we are committed to it and sharing our discoveries as long as we can. We’re gladly doing this out of our own pockets. We've been shy about asking for help, but with rising costs and our Social Security checks staying pretty much the same, we realize that we need help to continue. The average price of regular gas in the United States when we planned this venture was $2.78. Gas has gone up about $1 per gallon since then, and everything else has gone right along with it.
So, if anyone wants to kick in to help keep us on the road doing interviews and stories, to help improve the technology, expand the reach, or lengthen the miles of available road—we’re very appreciative and promise to put all contributions to good use.
