Crowdsourcing Mornings: Doctor Li And The Crown-Wearing Virus

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines

Doctor Li and the crown-wearing virus is a children’s book about the first hero of this pandemic, Chinese ophthalmologist Doctor Li Wenliang. It is written by NYT bestselling author Francesca Cavallo (co-author of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls) and illustrated by Claudia Flandoli.

He was the first whistleblower to raise the alarm about a new virus that was spreading in Wuhan, China. The police tried to silence him, accusing him of spreading false information. Doctor Li died of COVID-19 on February 7th, but he became a universal symbol of the importance of science, and of freedom.

As of May 27th, this project has raised $16,000 of their $50,000 goal. This project has 30 days left to raise the $50,000 or it will not be funded.  For a pledge of $5, you will a get a PDF version.  For a pledge of $18, you will get one book.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/francescavallo/doctor-li-and-the-crown-wearing-virus?
