All of our feelings are buried in posts here and there and so we thought we’d consolidate them into this singular, compact easy-to-read post, like a fold-up bike or a poncho.
There’s a thermometer in the right column of the website tracking the progress of your donations and fundraising sticker purchases, which we feel is relevant to your interests.
As of the morning of Tuesday, April 19th, we’ve raised almost $13,000 (UPDATE: Thursday 8:00 AM PST — $16,037) thanks to about 500 readers who donated and ordered stickers. It’s F-CKING MINDBLOWING and, as discussed in this post, we f-cking love you for it. It’s basically changed our lives forever more or less — and yours, because you’ve already guaranteed that we will both continue existing AND eating 2-3 meals a day, plus snacks.
We’re being super aspirational and continuing this fun(d)raiser until the end of the week! Because our parents always told us to reach for the stars (way before they told us that liking girls was just a phase). If you think that’s crazy, just remember — we ARE crazy!!
You can buy stickers at our Goodsie store.
Other Ways You Can Help:
When you buy things, buy them via our Amazon Associates Account. Check out the bottom of the “We Need Help” post for a list of some of the shopping guides we’ve produced including Boyshorts 101 and The Headphones Shopping Guide. If you’re buying books outside of America, we now also have an account with The Book Depository.
2) Business Advisor / Ad Person Hunt
In the “We Need Help” post, we let you know about how we need an Ad Salesperson and a Business Advisor to keep this ship sailing.
We’ve gotten a ton of REALLY AMAZING applications and we’re really excited to go through all of them and figure out what the hell to do with ourselves!
Two quick reminders:
a. We will be getting back to people late this week but more likely early next week.
b. Also! Remember that we are not looking for new ideas of things we (as in — Laneia and I) can do on our own. We are looking for explanations of what YOU can do.
If you’re pitching a business/money-making/marketing idea to us in your email, at least 75% of your pitch should be an explanation of how YOU can make that happen or help make that happen — because clearly if we could make it happen without you, we wouldn’t be asking for your help. You follow?
c. We’ve gotten a really incredible response to this and would like to let you know, once again, that WE LOVE YOU.
