After only 40 or so days my friends and colleagues have managed to pledge (and pay directly) an amazing £1398 – or 62% of what I’ve been looking to raise to help fund Unbroken Line, the play I’m producing. It was £100 down until this afternoon until a friend of mine pledged that amount for some graphic design I did for her show. You see, Art for Art. That’s how it’s working with me.
I’ve been really lucky and grateful that everyone so far has been so generous and giving to this project of mine. Your pledged donations have been received with much thanks and much honour. I’ve been busy with the play and preparations for it that I haven’t really spoken about it when I see people, mainly because I haven’t met up with many of my friends. It’s been a lonely trek so far but it’s about to get busy with my collaborators coming on board soon.
Reblog, retweet, re-everything it if you can’t afford anything from £1 to £1000… and remember even for a £1 you get a thank you on the website! A fiver gets you a postcard print of a painting; a tenner gets you a hand painted postcard and a regular postcard, £20 gets you a limited edition print, unmounted; £25 gets you a mounted painting (small)… I could go on but the WeFund page has ALL the minor details. Here’s an example of my work on video:

You can see my donations page here and the Official Wefund video is also on that page, which has a little clip of what you’re helping to produce by your patronage. NB some people have found the Wefund page a little tricky or glitchy. They’ve paypal’d me directly using my email address which is jamiezubairiATgmail.com You can see that there have been several donations pledged by me. That is why.
If you know anyone who is looking for a painting for their front room or that really wants to feel that they can directly benefit from being a patron to my play, please pass this on to them. I have an email template if you would like that too. Send me a message
Thank you for reading

Break a leg. Mounting a play is never an easy task.
