Thank you to our supporters who have already purchased this book. The response has been amazing to the extent that the supplies of the hard copy have been almost exhausted. Accordingly, online sales have now been withdrawn. There will be a very small number of hardcover books available at our raffle selling locations when we are able to present our team to the community post-COVID restrictions. The digital copy is still available for purchase at a reduced price of $33. Should you be interested to purchase this version please read the script below and click the “Purchase Now” button at the end and follow the prompts. We are considering a reprint of the hard copy but unless we can secure more sponsors this is a hard decision to proceed. We will keep you posted. Thank you.
