Updated February 28, 2011: after this year's WisCon, Con or Bust will be expanding to help fans of color attend the SFF cons of their own choosing, not just WisCon or other cons picked by Con or Bust. Please see this post for more detail.
Last year, Con or Bust raised $6,183.89 and helped thirteen people of color attend WisCon. We weren't able to meet all the requests for assistance, however, so I'm tentatively setting this year's auction goal at $7,000. Bidding on the auction will start Monday, February 21, 2011, at 12:01 a.m. EST (GMT -5) and end Sunday, March 6, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. EST. You may post auction offers and make donations now.
For more details, please see these updated posts explaining how to:
- make an auction offer;
- browse auctions;
- bid on an auction;
- pay for an auction or donate; and/or
- request assistance.
Please spread the word! Feel free to link back to this post, or to the community.
(Also, Con or Bust is looking to commission a logo; if you're an artist or know someone who is, check out the request for proposals.)
