The Campaign FAQs

  • What currency is accepted?

Most currencies are accepted, including CAD and EUR, and the transaction is automatically converted to USD.  For example, if you choose a reward listed for $100 US dollars, and you are paying in CAD funds, you will be charged the current rate of exchange, or approximately $134 CAD. Alternately, if you are paying in EUR, you will be charged the current rate of exchange, or approximately $90 EUR.
 

  • What will you do with any additional funds raised?

That would be incredible!  And there are two possibilities.  The first idea is to publish a book with the story of the Gratitude Collection and the Veterans they are about, including their stories.  The second idea is to add more pieces of artwork to the existing collection.
