I've been thinking about a number of variations on Three Million Widows. I would like to try to create a fold-out book with 29 black pages which will will start out blank. Each time a line is drawn on the page with chalk, a number is recorded, adding to 75,000. Hopefully this would be done in 29 days. Each visitor to the book would donate $1 equivalent. Upon reaching 29 days or $75,000, the book would be folded up, and the money would be collected for Iraqi widows.
Perhaps a pressure sensor could be used to record the number of lines on the pages? or it could just be a button is pushed. If this were done in 40 cities, in major museums, Three million dollars could be raised to send to Iraq, to Nawal al-Samarra's office (She rescinded her resignation offer on March 9th) to use.
I can try to contact Ox-fam, or other agencies to see about the feasibility. The obvious place to start is in Chicago.
