This is fabulous singer/songwriter Kirsty McGee. She is about to bring out her 6th album and like many artists, musicians, film makers etc working in this current climate is using a 'crowd funding' method to get things off the ground. This involves members of the public basically sponsoring the project to raise the money needed upfront to get it off the ground. In return you get rewards. There's different levels of reward starting from £10 which gets you a copy of the finished album and access to exclusive updates along the way. For a bit more you will also get the album + things like copies of Kirsty's excellent artwork and photographs. Kirsty has currently raised 86% of the money she needs and has just 5 days left to raise the rest. If she doesn't reach 100% then that it she doesn't get any of it and all the sponsorship pledges are returned.
Please take a look at this video to get a flavour of her work and find out more about you can be a patron of the arts and support a fellow vegan doing great work! You can also set it up so that you can do a sponsorship on behalf someone else - a great gift for the person who has everything!
