SCIENCE NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Help! The Los Angeles Science Fair is being cancelled just three weeks before the event due to insufficient funding.
Over 4,000 students have been working diligently since July to compete in this science fair. They are not able to compete in any other counties and will not be able to compete regionally or nationally this year or next if the LA Science Fair is cancelled. One of my best friends is one of these students. He’s been working towards his culminating project since he was 13 and building microbial fuel cells; he’s now a high school senior and may graduate having never been able to compete with his final project.
We need help right now to make this year’s competition happen. Every dollar helps; you can donate here: http://www.lascifair.org/donorspartners/donate-now/
We’re one of the most competitive science fairs in the country; in cancelling this science fair, we’re cutting hundreds of incredible young scientists clean out of the race.
This is about kids loving science. Please don’t let them down. Please please please donate. We’re currently $70,000 short for this year and, if things don’t look up, there will be no 2013 or 2014 science fair.
Please help me save my cat.
Hey everyone. I’ve been super busy working, and now I’ve hit another snag.
This is my kitty. He needs some major surgery to correct urinary issues he has been having. If he doesn’t get them fixed, he will either be put down, or will die from associated complications.
For several reasons, I cannot go into debt to do this. I do not get paid enough at my job (full time) to pay for the kind of payments associated with a loan.
If you would consider donating to this, and/or reblogging, I would forever be grateful. Thank you.
If this post got 100,000 people to donate a dime, just ten cents, I could afford my surgery.
I don’t ask for help very often, but I am now. I have 60 days to raise 10,000 dollars for surgery, and I can’t do it myself. Nearly every dime I make at work goes to taking care of my wife and the bills, and I find I have more month at the end of my money. I don’t expect something for free of course, so I’m giving what incentives I can for donating.
If you donate 10 cents -one dime- I will write a haiku about your tumblr. Think I won’t write 100,000 haikus? I absolutely will.
$1 donation will get a tarot or rune reading from me, you pick. I’ll even do a follow up reading for you within 90 days. And you’ll get a haiku.
$5 donation will get tarot/rune reading for you and five of your friends. Including follow ups. I am totally prepared to do 10,000 readings. All six of you get haikus.
$10 donation gets a lovely drawing of your choice from my wonderful wife bellsandbones.tumblr.com. Plus the $5 donation package.
$20 and I will mail you a glossy print of your drawing signed by Emily and you get the $5 donation package.
Any higher than that and I will make something up on the spot + $20 donation tier asdfghjkl
I’ve seen tumblr help get fluffy chickens and disneyworld trips. This surgery could very well save my life and it will certainly save my sanity. Even a signal boost will earn my undying gratitude. I didn’t set up a kickstarter or a fundme page because I want people to be able to donate pocket change if they wish, and these sites have a $1 minimum donation usually. Like I said, 100,000 dimes will do it.
My PayPal address is ofearthandsky(at)ymail.com
Thank you for just reading this.
Edited to add: whatever money I have left over if I exceed my goal will go to charity.
