Thank you ALL of you for supporting this project! I hope to have some exciting news regarding the Chinese-language print edition I can definitively share soon with you. But in meantime, you should know that collectively, your contributions, along with contributors on my GoFundMe page, as well as private donations, have collectively helped me reach about a third of my funding goals in the short time this project has launched. In the meantime, the project has received a great deal of attention in Chinese media, with pieces in Next
, World Journal Initium, Voice of America (Mandarin)
to name a few. I've also written a piece, "The Last BookSeller,
" for the newly launched PEN HK chapter. In doing this project, I've experimented with various forms of crowdfunding, but found GoFundMe
easier to use than Patreon, so that's where I've diverted most traffic. For more frequent updates on my work and thoughts, please check out my One CHild Facebook page
as well as my website meifong.org
. In a few days I'll be in Australia for book promotion, so if you're in that part of the world, check out my FBevents page.
"While the business of criticizing Beijing has always been somewhat hazardous, I cannot think of a time in recent history when it has been more difficult, if not to say dangerous, to do so..We can all do something. We must all do something."
