“Hey everyone! Some of you have probably heard of PACT but for those who haven’t you should check it out. "PACT is an organization dedicated to improving the working standards for illustrators” and right now they’re trying to raise funds to create a website as a hub for artists to interact, rate clients, get higher wages, etc. Unfortunately their indiegogo campaign is doing badly and is only a fraction of what they need. The post below is quoted from one of the head organizers of PACT and the stern tone of what he’s written is completely understandable. If you can’t donate please at least share this message to spread it around. Thanks.“ -Jason Piperberg

I think I need to make something clear. If we do not get funded, there will be no PACT. We will not try again at a lower donation goal. We will not go around to conventions trying to build up support one person at a time. This is it. All or nothing. If we don’t make it everything gets shut down. That means no website, no lawyers, not even this fb page anymore.
You have high and low expectations when you start one of these things. So far, the amount of support on the Indiegogo has completely blown my lowest expectations out of the water.
This project is not something that I desperately need to do, it’s something that you all desperately need done for you. I know that probably sounds arrogant and pompous, but it’s true.
Please think long and hard about the ramifications of this project not being a success. If you think things are bad now, what’s going to happen when the bean counters and powers-that-be see that we couldn’t even band together on something like this.
