Allocation of funds

<p> <strong>How will the collected funds be used?</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> I would like to start a collection of animated cards which <em>The Adventures of the Little Postal Train</em> would be the first creation.  Upcoming creations would explore the themes of the zoo, cities, or historical events.  In order to reach this goal, I need 5000 euros to launch this fabrication of the first 300 copies of <em>The Adventures of the Little Postal Train</em>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> I was able to absorb the costs of graphic design and illustration for this project, but I still need to bear the costs of animation creation and digital development of the cards.  Thanks to your contribution, I will be able to create the digital part of the project !</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vignettes_anglais-26-1432739818" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/203367/vignettes_anglais-26-1432739818.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Timeframe of the project from now to your mailbox !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vignettes_anglais-27-1432739851" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/203368/vignettes_anglais-27-1432739851.jpg"></p>
