You see that photo collage up there of me in all of my drag glory? You should click on it. Why you ask? To be blunt, it’s a click through link to a GoFundMe page and I want you to give me money.
Sharing this here first because while my lack of a real computer and my desire to preserve my mental health keeps me away from tumblr more or less, I still love you guys very much and I really do need your help (I’ll be blasting this all over both my facebooks soon too, so look for that if you’re friends with me there). I am trying to raise money for a drag pageant I will hopefully be competing in come October 25 in Little Rock, Arkansas, called Mister Southern States USofA:MI. You can read more about it in the GoFundMe. As you might know, Little Rock is a bit of a drive from where I am in Nashville, so I’m basically raising money to finance the trip, the registration fee for the pageant and the hotel more or less. Most of the other expenses (costuming, makeup, props, etc) I have already covered myself out of money I’ve saved from working.
I know a lot of people lately get squicky about fundraising where you don’t “get anything” in return, so I’m going to be upfront about this: mainly what I’m offering in return is my appreciation, and my announcing your name as one of my sponsors at the pageant. However, I am a creative person, so I’m also willing to do some simple work in exchange for a donation, ie. a digital doodle, a small painted canvas, a short custom fan fiction, a small fashion accessory, etc. Just message me and I am sure we can work something out.
I love you guys so much, thank you for everything!
In case the click-through doesn’t work (you wouldn’t believe how hard everything is to do on an old iPad): http://gofundme.com/jackrabid
Hello friends I am back again. The fundraising has sort of stagnated a bit, but I’m going to keep putting this out there in hopes some of you can help me out. Every dollar is just so appreciated, so I can’t even begin to express what it means to me to have your support in this. I have something to prove here, and I thank you for your being part of me proving it. Got my last package of rhinestones in today, this is so much closer than it seems! Just 10 days!
