Donate today to have your pledge matched!

Originally published at Con or Bust by Kate Nepveu. Please comment there ( comment(s)).

Any donations made to Con or Bust today will be matched by the wonderful Arachne Jericho, up to $500. You can donate with either a credit card or a PayPal account:





I encourage you to leave a comment at Arachne’s blog post to encourage others and show support after you’ve donated! Don’t worry if you forget, though, I will send a list of donations tomorrow.

All donations go directly to helping fans of color/non-white fans attend SFF cons. Since the start of 2012, Con or Bust has helped forty fans of color attend SFF cons, many for the very first time. Donations of any amount are very welcome!

(You can also donate to Con or Bust’s fiscal agent, the Carl Brandon Society, or the Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship Fund, another project the CBS runs that helps writers of color attend Clarion, and have those donations matched; see Arachne’s post above for more detail.)

Matching donations now through Friday 6/14!

As I posted earlier, the wonderful Arachne Jericho is matching today’s donations to Con or Bust, up to $500. As I write this, today’s donations stand at $413.

Since we’re so close, and since it’s late at least here on the East Coast, this is what I’m going to do:

I will match the next $500 in donations received, for either today or tomorrow (Friday, June 14). There’s two assistance periods left before Con or Bust’s next auction, and these funds will make a big difference in how many fans of color/non-white fans we can help attend SFF cons during that time; let’s keep the momentum going!

You can donate with either a credit card or a PayPal account:
