How can you help Brent?

Brent is Seeking...


Two-hundred Individuals or Organisations
(from companies to schools, kindergartens, shops, etc) that would like to donate
a one-off $NZ100 pledge towards the printing costs of the book. Once Brent gets
his two-hundred sponsors, he will take everything to the next level and have the book produced (here in Timaru) with a local printer.

What would you get for your $100 donation?

• A tax receipt.
• Your name (or company name, website etc) will be acknowledged in print inside the back cover of every book printed and sold worldwide. The first print run will be 1000 books. Your details will also be posted on Brent’s web-site.
• You will receive a personally autographed copy of this first edition of the book. You will also be entitled to a 20% discount off any additional copies that you may wish to purchase.
• You will also receive a limited edition colour (and signed) print of your favourite page from the book.
• Brent will also offer you a significant discount on any of the corporate (or non-corporate) services that his cartoon business provides.

Brent will warmly accept donations of more than $100. Companies
or organisations who would like to contribute a significant sponsorship of $1,000 or more will have their logo reproduced in full colour in the front cover of the book. And because the book will be launched both here & in Brazil, there is an excellent opportunity for you (or your business) to be promoted internationally as well.

Brent is also seeking sponsorship in-kind of other products and services. These would be a huge help with the production of the book, future print-runs & launches, both here and overseas. Can you help with any of the following?

• NZ wine & cheese
• translation services (Maori & Portuguese)
• air-travel and accommodation (local and overseas)
• text layout & design
• marketing & distribution
• legal advice on international copyright
• an empty shop front in Timaru CBD to exhibit pages from book

If you are reading this in South Canterbury, Brent is now accepting invitations from companies, kindergartens, maraes, schools, social & community groups (etc) to come in and show you his book in progress. As well as getting an entertaining speaker & cartoonist, you will also hear about Brent’s recent adventures in Brazil and how this inspired the story he is creating. And afterwards, he will draw free cartoons for all those present as a reminder of
his visit. Please contact Brent now for more information or bookings.

If you would like to make a donation, you can either pay Brent by
direct credit (bank account details are available on request), or by cheque
or cash. (Please do not post money!) Cheques can be made out to
‘Brent Harpur, Cartoonist’ & posted to:
Blue Butterfly HQ, 4 Buchanan Street, Timaru 7910, New Zealand.
