We were looking at tennis projects on Kickstarter (as we do every so often) and ran across this plea from Jack Han to get shipped to the Australian Open in January. He already has credentials (via tennisconnected.com) but just needs to get that extra boost (kick?) to fund his travel to the first major of 2013.
He's bartering a few things, including getting asking a question on behalf of a donor; sending out the tourney's daily previews (in print) along with the event program; grabbing some official AO swag (towel, shirt) and a match-used ball; doing some writing and photo-blogging. Pretty enterprising, we think. Best of luck to Han; hopefully he'll end up getting the $4k he needs.
Waitaminute -- how are we getting to Australia in a few months? Should we start a Kickstarter too??
Pitch in: Jack Han's "Help me get to the Australian Open!" kickstarter.
