Mainers: A week-and-a-half ago, I asked for help in my indiegogo campaign to raise money to go to Kansas in November to speak at the #140conf SmallTown: Exploring the State of NOW in Small Towns conference.
Here is why this may be of interest to you.
- I will make cool stuff for you in exchange for your generous contribution
- The State of Now 140 Small Town 2012 conference has only 20 states represented in its speakers and I am the only Maine speaker.
- My topic is “Another Glorious Day in Suck City: How Facebook and blogging help my family cope with my father’s terminal illness“
- I will share my trip with the world! Start in Maine, end in Kansas. Turn around and go back again.
So far, I’ve raised $145. [$100 was sent to me as a check by a relative, and therefore is not reflected in the total.] I have a long way to go.
It’ll make you stronger and better looking!
