Dear Donors and Sponsors,
As I depart for the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, I want to sincerely thank all of you for your support of my return. To date I have raised over $17,500 through Kickstarter. You have given me faith that there continues to be a strong interest for in-depth photojournalism content, and I leave for Chernobyl to continue my coverage because of your support.
Since I am still short of my $25,000 expense budget for the trip, I would like to take this opportunity to inspire a final push to share my project with your friends, family, and colleagues. I do this not only to cover the expenses for my return, but also because I feel that the awareness for the Chernobyl disaster must continue to spread.
In that pursuit, I would also like to share with you some interesting articles I have found over the course of the last few months. If you are staying up-to-date with the project Facebook Page, perhaps you have read these already, if not, I welcome you to spend a few moments to learn more about the current issues and debates surrounding the tragedy.

I also invite you to read an interview recently conducted by Anthony Friedkin at Samy’s Camera: http://www.samys.com/index/page/static/subpage/ludwig_friedkin
Thank you again for all of your support and interest. I hope you take some time this week to reach out again to your social networks and invite your friends to match your support and learn more about the Chernobyl tragedy.
