The Endangered Alphabets Project is now officially a non-profit corporation registered in the state of Vermont! Next step: the 501(c)(3) application to the IRS. And then we will be eligible for tax-dedictible donations, grants, and all those other things that I barely know anything about–for now. The steep learning curve has begun.
In the meantime, in addition to making a steady procession of new carvings (see photos) we’re also creating all kinds of interactive, hands-on educational materials: endangered alphabets puzzles, endangered alphabets coloring sheets, endangered alphabets word searches, endangered alphabets rubber stamp blocks for hand-printing, and the like. If you have creative ideas and suggestions, by all means let us know.
Many of these will be unveiled at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C., in June. If you think a school, college, or library near you might be interested, let us know that as well!
