MS Fundraising follow up

Thank you to everyone who donated for the 2014 MS Walk for a Cure. Together we have raised $10,426! Sadly that is short of the $12k needed to bring Sailor Bacon back for the convention season. 
HOWEVER! We have been informed by MS that they will continue to accept donations through the weblink until JUNE 1st!! Therefore, if you are one of the many folks who have been asking me about Sailor Bacon at any of the conventions there is still hope. If you wish to rally your forces to get those numbers up, you have until the end of this month. And if you do, I will carry Sailor Bacon to conventions for a full calendar year, not just until the end of 2014! That means ECCC, Calgary and Ottawa will get to see the horror that is me in a pink wig and skirt.
Just as an aside, the thought of more Sailor Bacon fills Sohmer with dread. So if you won’t donate for charity, won’t you donate for spite? Less than $1600 is needed with less than a week to go!
As always you can donate here via Paypal or credit card:
All art incentives are still active during this donation time. You can find the details in this tumblr post. 
See you in the funnies!

The donate button still works, and only 572$ remaining in the stretch goal, so that @uncalar / @lartist on Twitter… will sport the AMAZING SAILOR BACON cosplay at conventions for a whole con season (!!!)Lars is a very sweet and talented,  generous guy. Looking forward to his hinted-at cosplay upgrades ;)Also, MS research: very important. Please donate if you can. THANKS !

Hey guys, the She Makes Comics kickstarter has 6 days to go and it’s not fully funded yet! This is an awesome, incredibly worthwhile project that I know a lot of you care about, so spread the word.

I’ll be so sad if this doesn’t get made! Spare a dollar?

Less than 200$ to go! 

Let’s do this!

Hey guys. For the next ten days, I’m going to be dedicating HONY to raising money for Hurricane Sandy. We’re going to try to do this in a HONY-like way. All of the blog’s content will be dedicated to telling the stories of people affected by the storm. Sandy left behind a lot of sad stories, but also some happy ones. We’re going to try to tell them all. The good people at Tumblr have stepped in to cosponsor the fundraiser, and they are going to be promoting these stories through their channels. We will simultaneously be holding an Indiegogo campaign. I’m excited to announce that 100% of proceeds will be going to relief efforts: Indiegogo is waiving fees. Paypal is waiving fees. Tumblr is providing goodies. And I’m covering the cost of the photographs. We found a damn good charity too. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is a family-owned charity in Staten Island, located right in the heart of one of the worst hit areas. They’ve been doing amazing work the last couple weeks, and have been endorsed by many government officials. 
I want to emphasize that this is a fundraiser, and not a print sale. With that being said, I can assure you that it will be the last time prints will be made available for at least a year. Perhaps much longer than that. Let’s have some fun next week… and kick some Sandy ass!The campaign page:http://igg.me/p/270131?a=221102

Let's Build a Goddamn TESLA Museum!

This post isn’t under the tags ‘action figures’ or ‘actors’. However, it is definitely tagged under ‘coolest thing ever that you can contribute to and feel the warm fuzzies about’.

Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal) feels strongly about Nikola Tesla.

The TESLA Science Center of Wardenclyffe is trying to purchase the land where Tesla’s lab formerly sat, now in near-ruins, near Long Island NY.

Together they want to create a historical site honouring Tesla and his many scientific achievements. The goal is to raise $ 850,000. That seems like a daunting amount but the fundraiser is nary 4 hours old at post-time and they have already raised more than 1/10th of the goal. Astonishing!

The perks are cool. The geeks are out in full force in support of this. 

Now how much will it take to rebuild a  full-functioning wireless TESLA energy tower …

Indiegogo Fundraiser for the TESLA Museum  

The Oatmeal blog post

Matthew Inman will answer your questions about the fundraiser on Reddit

Update: The fundraiser has reached over $ 400,000 and crashed Indiegogo D:

Update II: So this just happened, 6 days after the fundraiser started, around 3:07pm PT:

Tesla Museum Indiegogo reached its $ 850,000 goal!

Wow! Congrats Matthew Inman and Tesla Science foundation!
