Angie’s Comic-Con Trip Fund!

Standard

As many of you know, I applied and was accepted for a reporting position with CBR at this year’s Comic-Con, which is set for July 12-15 in lovely San Diego, California. Naturally, I am totally hyped over the notion of getting the opportunity to see RA and other TH folks, along with lots of other interesting possibilities. Just seeing the costumes sported by some attendees alone should be highly entertaining and I promise to take my camera.  And I long to be an ambassador for my fellow RA fans at the event and to be able to share as much as I can with you all as “the next best thing to being there.”

However, to get from Alabama to California is no mean feat. It takes funds, and I’ve been unemployed since last September.  There’s nothing left in the “rainy day” fund, if you know what I mean. People have offered to help, and so we’re setting up a way for you to do so.

A donate button will be added to the sidebar on this blog that will allow you to contribute  to Angie’s Comic-Con Trip Fund. Any amount will be greatly appreciated, and many thanks to fellow blogger RA Frenzy for assisting me with this. More coming in future posts on other fundraising plans!  EDIT: BUTTON ONLY WORKS WITH US DONORS FOR NOW. ATTEMPTING TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM* PROBLEM APPEARS TO BE CORRECTED, FOREIGN READERS, GIVE IT A WHIRL!**

In a few weeks, I hope to be sitting not too far away from this bloke:

About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. I have a problem with Paypal. I receive this message
    “Ce destinataire n’accepte pas les paiements en provenance des comptes PayPal hors des États-Unis.”
    Could you make inquiries ?

  2. Angie, it also looks like only US credit cards and addresses can be used…is this so or am I reading it incorrectly? Even if I gave Melanie’s address in Oceanside, CA,, my card is still an Australian one

    • Yes, thank you, Frenz for tempting Angie to apply in the first place and for all of your help to make this happen.

  4. I just discovered I have to tutor also in June, Angie, so we can share some of my limited income LOL!
    Just let me know if you received my donation. I used the CreditCard button, but I haven’t received any receipt.

    Good luck!!!

  5. Hi Fedoralady,
    I also plan to make a donation. Happy to do so. I am so thrilled for you getting to go to Comic-Con–and in the capacity as a reporter! But my donation has to wait until the next paycheck. We just paid off the rest of the vet bill from Sophie’s surgery and she sees him again tomorrow.
    Cheers! Grati ;->
    P.S. One question, there is a fellow’s email address at the top of the window when I click on the donate button. I haven’t seen that before on other pay windows. Is that person helping you with the account? I just wanted to make sure that I had the right window for when I do make a donation.
