Announcing the 2010 fundraising drive for Con or Bust!

I am pleased to announce that Con or Bust will be running another fundraiser to assist people of color who want to attend WisCon. Bidding on the auction will run from Wednesday, February 24, 2010 (12:01 a.m. Eastern), through Saturday, March 13, 2010 (11:59 p.m. Eastern). You may post auction offers and make donations now.

For more details, please see these posts explaining how to:

(I apologize for the resulting flood of posts on your reading lists just now, but it can't be avoided in communities.)

We also have a shiny new donation button for use with PayPal accounts or credit cards, thanks to the Carl Brandon Society:

And an about/questions post that gives a quick overview of Con or Bust and is a permanent place for general-purpose questions.

So: go forth, spread the word, donate, participate!
