I hope some of my dear gentle readers will be willing and able to donate a total of at least $400 to assist me with my expenses to attend Blogcon in Washington, D.C., from today through Sept. 11 and the 9/12 March on Sunday. I’m really only asking for help with paying Awesome Nephew for working 24/7 to care for Dad while I’m away. I know some readers think he should work for free, but he’s got to trade his time for money while he’s working his way through college so I am competing for his time. He does the most work and the best job for the least money. He’s also agreed to my IOU, so please donate even though Blogcon starts today. My other expenses will be $80 to $110 for parking at the hotel, Metro fares (about $30), meals ($60) and gas and tolls ($30). So the real total I have to cover is about $630. FreedomWorks is paying for my hotel room. If I raise more than $630, I will apply the money to attending Homocon in New York City on Sept. 25 to hear Ann Coulter speak.
I appreciate the generosity of my dear gentle readers. I am working to make enough money from my writing so that I will not constantly be making these appeals.
Update, 9/9/10, Thurs.: I forgot to add the PayPal button:
Update, almost 1 am, 9/10/10, Fri.: Dear Stacy McCain is here at Blogcon and features a photo of me with CPAC Director Lisa De Pasquale, who is not a lesbian, even if she IS attending Homocon to hear her friend, Ann Coulter. I had a wonderful chat with Lisa Thursday evening and promised to vouch for her, not-being-a-lesbian-wise, what with me being an authority on the subject and all.
