It's time, once again, for evil to rise.
In case you missed it, one of our own was knocked down by the Universe recently: Julie Butcher's husband had a little accident with a chainsaw. He's okay but he's already had multiple surgeries, he has a long recovery period ahead of him, and this costs money. A lot of it.
So we're going to help them out.
Writers? We've got you covered.
Readers? Yeah you too.
When the Universe kicks one of our own, we kick back.
April 1 is known as April Fool's Day, but this is no joke. I repeat: THIS IS NOT A DRILL. THIS IS AN ACTUAL THING. THE PERKS ARE NOT JOKES. April 1 is also the ELEW's anniversary, so in lieu of an anniversary post this year, we're doing this fundraiser.
So go forth. Be bad guys. Do evil. For Julie.
Initial Evil Thanks must be given to the following people:
- Leigh Evans and Kerry Schafer, for their hardcore tree shaking and sending so many perks our way.
- Jim Butcher, Lilith Saintcrow, and Danielle Kendall, for jumping on board the very instant we started tossing ideas around.
- Dina James, because none of this would happen--I would never DREAM of running a fundraiser--without my partner in eviltry.
Everyone who shared and blogged and advertised this to get perks donated, everyone who donated, thank you. A lot was put together in just a few days.
|I know I broke my Firefly theme. Shut up.|
Now we have a month to raise at least $5000.
Let's get to work.
