As you may have noticed, I’m working on a great new venture, The Plain of Jars Project. It is a fundraiser for a small community project, The Lone Buffalo Foundation, in Laos, where I’ve hung my hat for the last five months. If you haven’t checked it out, here is the fundraiser page at StartSomeGood:

Donation are of course welcome!

The images in the gallery below are the rewards for donors (along with some handmade Lao items, some made by Unexploded Ordnance survivors):

If you want read about the impetus of the project, the great crew endorsing the project, donor’s list, sponsor’s list, and the blog (phew!), take a look here:

Things may be a bit slower around Jon Witsell Photographic Arts—but you can catch a lot of great activity at the links above!

After about five months of volunteering at the Lone Buffalo Foundation in Laos, my Plain of Jars Project fundraiser is online! Take a look at the launch video (no, I will never replace George Clooney—I much prefer being BEHIND the camera!). After starting video, click the gear in the lower right hand corner and set to at least 480p!

My New Project, Direct From The Plain Of Jars in Laos

It has been six months in the making and the new website is live! The Plain of Jars Project is a fundraiser for a small but amazing community project in Phonsavan, Laos, called the Lone Buffalo Foundation. Phonsavan is on the Plain of Jars and is one of the most heavily bombed areas on the planet.

Today’s date isn’t a random selection; today is the United Nations’ International Mine Awareness Day, an apt day considering the massive amount of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) from the Secret War still littering the country—and still maiming and killing civilians, some 40% that are children.

The Plain of Jars website is a content portal and a link to a fundraising campaign for the Lone Buffalo Foundation.

Please take a look at the project page here.

That fundraising campaign launches on April 17th, 2014, on StartSomeGood a crowd source funding site. I’ll be updating campaign information as the 17th approaches. Please check back often!
