How will we manage your contributions?
The cost of writting the script, draw the illustrations and color them is almost covered thanks to the contributions of the surfing entities listed.
Why do we need your contributions then?
A % of your contribution will be destined to pay taxes and the cost of this campaign. More or less it could represent 2,5eur of each 10euros received..
Customizing each comic will suppose at least around 30-45min of work of a graphic designer that we need to pay. Possible it will represent 5 euros of each 10eur received.
With the remaining money we will print and send the panels called “Defend the oceans”, that in the story will be designed by the main characters, to be placed at surfing federations, surfing schools, surfing clubs and surfing shops facilities.
If by any chance we get more money than expected we will study carefully to wich of the active projects that we are already performing could be better destined. We will also ask our supporters their oppinión through our social networks.

It will depend a lot on the amount of comics that will need to be customized, it is not the same to customize 100 comics as customizing 1.000. We will try in any case not to extend it more than a couple of months after the campaign is over.
We will be ready to write the script, make the illustrations and color them as soon as we get the contributions of the official partners, we are just about to begin with this work.
