How to Support the Project
Addressing Gettysburg Staff Officer
Addressing Gettysburg Staff Officers are volunteers who want to help this project achieve its goals. To become a volunteer, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Addressing Gettysburg is more than a podcast, even though it is beginning with the podcast. Our ultimate goal is to create a community of Gettysburg-nerds and -novices alike. The nerds help the novices see that history, especially Gettysburg history, is NOT boring. We have ideas for annual conventions, videos, live shows and more. But, first thing's first. Before we can get to most of those ideas, we will need to first complete production and release of season one of the podcast in order to develop the following required to support such ideas. So, if you're reading this before the release of season one, you have a chance to get in on the ground floor by supporting production in one of a number of ways.
Our goal is not to make money, at least not at this early stage. Our goal right now is to eliminate or defray our costs of production which, luckily enough, are not as bad as they could be thanks to our founder's ability to make and keep the right connections. However, it still costs in time, equipment, incidentals and accomodations for our guests. The most important one is the accomodations for the guests. Every guest is fed before a session. Some guests from out of the area require car services and/or board. This adds up pretty quickly.
So how can you support us? Well, let's start with the one that is the easiest and doesn't cost you one red cent more than what you were going to pay anyway. We're talking about our Amazon Store.
Our website is strewn with links to Amazon, be they the links to books and movies on our Recommended Reading page, banners on other pages or the Amazon banner at the very top of our homepage. Should you find yourself needing or wanting to shop Amazon for ANYTHING, all you need to do is the following:
Maybe you're one of those rare few who don't use Amazon. Or maybe you do but you don't want us to wait for $.07 per qualifying sale to eventually add up to a dollar. You can donate via PayPal using your PayPal account or your credit card. And if you really love us and care about the podcast generation learning their nation's history, then you can make it a monthly payment. Just click the "Donate" button. After that, it's pretty simple. The page should look like this (note that they may update their site now and then and slightly tweak the look of things).
MJC Productions is the name of the production company that produces Addressing Gettysburg. So, don't be confused by the name.
A fun way to support the show is merhcandise through our Sutler's Store. Like Amazon, there's a catch to us receiving our earnings, but it's not so difficult to achieve. The best part is you get something tangible and can show your support and help us spread the word with your mug, shirt, doggy bandana, phone case, and more.
Whichever way you choose to do this, we really appreciate your show of support and we promise, we WILL surprise you and make you glad you got in on the ground floor.
