Currently at a little over $16K, the funds will be donated directly to the soup kitchen; we are coordinating with their managment and IndieGoGo to make sure funds are sent to them directly, minus IndieGoGo's fee and the costs for the T shirt and card perks.

Please consider a donation- the campaign is over and no one remembers the pouting and sniveling that cost this organization a ton of money to feed people in one of the most economically depressed areas of the country.

As I said in earlier threads and to Brian Antal (the president of the SVDP chapter in Mahoning County Ohio)- when everyone's forgotten about Paul Ryan's visit, it'll still be a cold Ohio winter and people will still be hungry. Let's help make their holiday season a little better, shall we?

If y'all keep feeding the poors, they'll never die off...

Yep, only a few days left, but if you haven't thought about contributing yet, please do so in the next few days. Winter is cold in Ohio, and soup kitchens never take a day off. Lots of folks out there need our help! :)

Cyclo - any updates on the t-shirt front?

Mr Antal and I have been discussing the distribution of the funds so we can make sure I don't have to receive any money while also making sure we get the t-shirts paid for.

He gave me a copy of the SVDP logo which I will look into making part of the shirt, if we can keep the costs low enough with it on them.

I'd expect shirts to start going out sometime after Christmas, realistically. We have to get them printed and mailed.

I hope the immature, spiteful arseholes who withdrew their donations from the kitchen will reconsider their arseholishness now that the election is over. It's a sin to let people go hungry just because your wee bitty feelings were hurt.

And thank you to I_C_ Weener for the month of TF! It's my most significant accomplishment in years which would depress me if I weren't enjoying myself so much.

Makes sense. When you get a designed worked up, please send me a copy. I know the folks at the t-shirt shop near my house, and they might be able to cut us a deal.
