With less than 2 weeks left till the MS Walk for a Cure, one thing has become abundantly clear to me. You like Sohmer’s wife more than my wife.
This year’s 10km walk for Multiple Sclerosis is on Sunday May 3rd. Once again I appeal to you as Sailor Bacon to donate what you can, and help spread the word and encourage others to donate. Our goal this year is $12000 – the same as last year. Every dollar counts and if everyone could donate in the next couple weeks that would be amazing.
I understand in this society of crowdfunding that there’s more requests for your money than ever before. Kickstarters, IndieGoGos, Patreons etc. But donations have stalled for the past week. Maybe you’re not getting a book or a video in return but you are making a better world. And if you are able to donate generously you can get some tangible stuff.
Donations of $100+. Send me your pledge confirmation and I will do an original ink drawing of a single character of your choice for you (no O.C.s or caricatures please). I’m currently limiting this to ten (subject to change).
Donations of $250+. Send me your pledge confirmation and I will do an original gouache watercolour of single character of your choice for you (no O.C.s or caricatures please). This is also currently limited to ten (subject to change).
This is the NEW one! I’m lowering my offer from last season regarding Black Velvet paintings! For a confirmed donation of $500+, I’ll do you a black velvet painting of any single character (no O.C.s or caricatures please) 11x14ish. Currently I am limiting this to 5 (subject to change)
I will cover all shipping costs to anywhere in the world.
In addition, I volunteer to dye my beard and hair if we reach certain milestones – starting at $5k with additional colours for each additional $1k we earn.
And if we reach our goal I will continue to bring Sailor Bacon to conventions for another calendar year. (She is currently slated to appear only through June 2015!)
If we reach our dream goal of $15000 I will upgrade the costume again (no idea how yet but I will!). I will also shave my head into a mohawk for the remainder of the 2015 convention season. Think of it – a rainbow mohawk!! You can make that happen!
So there you have it. Please help us reach our goal. Every dollar counts and is appreciated! Please like and reblog/retweet/re-shout from the rooftops.
See you in the funnies!
