To Benefit

The Bryan House in Aurora, Illinois assists legally established refugees in breaking the cycle of working class poverty by giving them a year or more in their own living space. During this time, rent payments are invested and returned to them with interest upon departure. The result is often enough for a home down payment, and the start of building equity for a newly settled family. 

Peter's Pledge

100% of print sales. $800 total if the edition sells out.
