dolphkhan: Seriously, though, the thing I love most about Fark and TFD is the communal support. I mean, I love the vulgarity and oddness, but I really adore the fact that there's something stronger beneath the veneer of penis jokes.

It's dick jokes all the way down.

Hey everybody. Here's the backstory on my little fundraising effort:

My gentleman friend, a photographer, worked with this shelter during his stay in Laos last year. He was really impressed with the work they do, really taken with the children who live there, and came away determined to do what he could to help this community. So when he got the news that he'd been asked to do a rather prestigious gallery showing of his photographs, he decided that he'd donate the proceeds from the sales of his work to this shelter. He's planning it as a surprise for them.

Now, I had the idea a few days ago to do something to help supplement his donation to this place. Something that wouldn't be tied to sales of his pieces, but would maybe help raise a bit beyond his goal (as most of his photos shown will be limited-run or one-of-a-kind printings, so it's a finite amount). Thanks to a fellow Farker, I got the PayPal for Dummies rundown; I went and set up a new bank account specifically for this venture and ran the PayPal gauntlet.

This is the point where I call upon the Power of Fark™. You folks are a kind and generous bunch (as evidenced by previous fundraising efforts around here) and I would be beyond grateful if you could kick a few spare bucks this way. As he is surprising the shelter with his fundraising efforts, I want to surprise HIM with a supplemental check that will also go straight to Kajsiab. His goal from the showing is $2000 - if I could help bump that up to $3000 or so, everyone involved would be incredibly happy and grateful AND they would be able to put a down payment on their new location currently under construction.

So if you're in a giving mood, the PayPal addy is b­ell­anol­a504­[nospam-﹫-backwards]ooha­y*c­om. His gallery show is on March 9th, so I want to try and raise as much as I can in the next couple of weeks. This is small-scale and my first online charity effort, so please be gentle. Also, I have no plans to solicit donations with BIE. Sorry, y'all.
