For those of you unfamiliar with The Leapyear Project, it's the self-education/ self-discovery endeavor of Chicagoan Victor Saad where he's been shadowing entrepreneurs, finding apprenticeships, taking unusual classes and ultimately, creating his own MBA program. It's a 12-month program of 12 experiences fusing design, business and social change.
But, of course, it's not all about him. Since January, Victor has been traveling all over the world inspiring the people he meets and learns from to take their own leaps: ranging from starting a corporate charity foundation to searching for long lost family members—all these stories shared on LeapYearProject.org and now, with your help, in an artistic compilation book of inspiring, heartbreaking, awakening and life-changing risks.
From Victor on his Kickstarter project:
My final project is to compile a book of meaningful stories from this community. It'll be a beautiful and inspiring book that you'll want to keep around for a long time and share with the people you care about. …
Who's it for? The stories and experiences shared in the book will be perfect for a broad audience, from kiddos to grandparents. It'll be a beautiful piece to place on coffee tables, in classrooms and on bookshelves. Think of it as an artistic resource full of inspiring stories and guiding questions. Throughout the book, I’ll also share anecdotes and honest lessons from my own experiences throughout the year.
THERE'S ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT to head on over to the project's Kickstarter page to see all the incredible awards you could get with your support: Limited edition copies of the book, a project print designed by Debbie Millman, Leapyear Project-themed Bow Truss Coffee and Threadless tees, a meeting with Victor, and so much more.
