Update: October 22nd, 2012 – The Gambia, West Africa

Since we made our target on Kickstarter (thanks to all for their pledges!) a week or so ago, we’ve had numerous emails from people asking if it was too late for them to donate to the River Gambia Expedition, in exchange for Jason Florio’s fine art prints – either from his on-line gallery collections (shown above) or from an exclusive new series of images, from photographs he will take whilst we are on the journey, here in West Africa. Please see ‘Herouna and his white horse’ & ‘Kuntaur Wharf’ (below) – just two examples of the series of Florio’s fine art prints available in ‘an exchange’ from our last expedition in 2009 ‘A Short Walk in the Gambian Bush

So, we have decided to extend ‘an exchange’ (thanks to all who are on board so far!), which pre-dated our Kickstarter campaign, but it basically works on the same principle: Jason Florio’s fine art prints in exchange for donations – and for a greatly reduced price then the prints would usually cost in the gallery.

‘An exchange’ special offer ends Feb 1st 2013

You don’t have $100/£65 + to spare? That’s all good too…because every penny and cent will get you some kind of reward. OK, it won’t get you one of Jason’s prints but every single person who donates, even with $25 USD/£16 GBP, will have their name, and/or your company website, linked, added to the blogroll list of thanks  and on all our other social media sites (such as Twitter & FB). PLUS: Your name, or company name/website, written (in BOLD) on a piece of card, wood, fabric, the canoe paddles, if it comes to it – basically, whatever raw materials we can find when we’re down here in West Africa!

One of the expedition team will hold up the banner and a photograph will be taken – whether we are in the Fouta Djallon highlands or paddling through hippo-abundant waters Niokolo Koba National Park, Senegal, or standing on the historical Kunta Kinteh Island, in The Gambia – said photo will be posted onto the blog, twit-pic’d, Facebooked, Tumblr’d – the lot! (If you prefer not to be social media’ed, then that’s cool too – just let us know when you donate).

Something that looks like this: this could be your name/company name on this banner
