Launch of Fundraising Campaign

Today, we are launching a campaign to raise money for our trip in January to visit the Wauja communities in the Amazonian rainforest in Brazil. Rather than depend on one or two big donors, we are using a “crowd sourcing” model of fundraising, which asks for smaller amounts from more people.

To support this project, please use your credit card or make a paypal transfer to at Paypal. One hundred percent of donations are being used to support the project. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.

You can also help us by spreading the word on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter @ReturnofSpirits.
