As I mentioned on the About page, 100% of the royalties from The Church and New Media are being directed toward building a computer lab in the Diocese of Mombasa, Kenya. The project is run through Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the international charitable arm of the American Church.
Even though the book hasn’t been released yet, CRS has already fronted a large sum of money to the Diocese of Mombasa so they could begin their work.
Today, CRS sent me some of the first pictures of the lab in action. The lab is in the Good Shepherd Catholic Training Center in Ukunda, Mombasa. It’s outfitted with ten new computers and flat-screen monitors and the training has already begun:

In addition to buying the book, you can also donate directly to the computer lab project through the Catholic Relief Services website: http://donate.crs.org/computerskenya.
If you haven’t ordered your copy of the book yet, you can buy it here. Also, we should have a Kindle version available for pre-order in about two weeks. I’ll keep you updated!
