Allocation of funds

<p> The collect will enable us to <strong><u>finance a part of the book's production and impression.</u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Very concretely, we want to print <strong>1200 copies</strong>, which represents a cost of <strong>8280</strong> <strong>euros</strong>.</p> <p> To this adds up the 8% commission fees for Kiss Kiss Bank Bank, i.e. <strong>720 euros</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> This is why we settled our goal to <u><strong>9000 euros </strong>to print <strong>WEST IS THE BEST #2 – France</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u>And what if we outcome this goal?</u></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Objectifs_angl-1458906401" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/295590/OBJECTIFS_angl-1458906401.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Don't panic, this money won't go into a new coffee machine...</p> <p> The extra will be directly injected into the project <strong>WEST IS THE BEST</strong>. It will help us finance <u><strong>the production of  a documentary</strong></u>, co-realised by Joran Briand, Brian Llinares et Mehreen Talpur (52 minutes) and the production of a DVD.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>The collabs :</u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> West is the best X <a href="http://www.lesolivades.fr" target="_blank">Olivades</a></p> <p> West is the best X <a href="http://heldersupply.com" target="_blank">Helder Supply</a></p> <p> West is the best X <a href="http://www.march-lab.com" target="_blank">March LA/B</a></p> <p> West is the best X <a href="https://www.facebook.com/laplanchearoulettespage/" target="_blank">La Planche à Roulettes</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> A big thanks to them!</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>
