I need to get the spreadsheet before I can do the ACTUAL math, but roughing it out from the sales numbers, I THINK the Fred Phelps fundraiser is going to mean

- about $825 bucks for Futures Without Violence;

- about $300 to Girls Leadership Institute; and 

- about $300 to the Trevor Project.  

THANK YOU, good people of the internet.  And may you rest in peace, Mr. Phelps.

double-donation day from the #teamHAWKGUY store at WeLoveFine

mattfractionblog:

in memory of Fred Phelps + his legacy I’ll double all my donations to Futures Without Violence today from my HAWKEYE store.

 http://bit.ly/hawkguy

so if you’ve been thinking about getting a shirt, today’d be a cool day to do it.

(basically: i get a cut on the shirts i curate from WLF. I give that cut to FWV quarterly. Today, whatever shirts sell from the store, i’m gonna figure out what that cut would be, personally double it, and write Futures Without Violence a separate, special, check, in Phelps’ memory.)

Tell you what, Carol Corps — I’m gonna play too.  But I’m gonna change it up a little: 

My commission off our We Love Fine Collection will go to the Girls Leadership Institute, as always.  

BUT for today, as Fred Phelps’ legacy, I’ll personally make a matching donation to The Trevor Project.   

Because if there is a God, I’m pretty sure she loves everybody.  Even poor fucked-up Fred.

I grew up in Boston. I live outside of Phoenix, now, but I grew up in the Boston area. I still have friends and family there (Got in touch with most of them, today — Everybody is fine, just in a state of shock).
I’m giving what I can, today; This week’s comics are gonna have to wait. Other people need this more than I do, right now.
Let’s do this, Carol Corps.

I can’t be there to help the people of Boston, but I can join my fellow Carol Corps members by donating to the Red Cross. It’s simple and takes five minutes and a minimum of $10 online and it’s worth every second and every penny.

If you can, please donate. We can’t all wear spandex and wrangle…

Second half of the #100boatchallenge bonus monies — BAM!

I am an old lady with wee kids so I was in bed before the midnight donation, but I was more than happy this morning to cough up the promised $100 for Team Hawkguy when I got up, and then added some more because I am lucky enough I could, for my dad and my oldest.

The 7-year old thinks that Clint Barton is magic (you’ll forgive him if he hasn’t learned to appreciate Kate yet, he’s in that stage where girls get a side-eye, and not the good kind) and I think the last 24 hours kind of proved that.

My dad subcontracts doing disaster inspections for FEMA,  You get paid for each one you file, the obvious incentive being that the more quickly you move the more you bring home.  I’ve never been convinced he actually makes any money doing this.  He’s big on being thorough, but he’s also the kind of guy who spends all day carting someone around to help them navigate often intimidating government services because he can see how bad off they are and he can’t not help.  

He called me once or twice a day while he was out there, telling me stories about cops and firefighters and families with kids who he was meeting with, but mostly he would talk about just how bad it was out there.  He was in Texas and Louisiana after Gustav and Ike and what he would tell me, over the phone from New York, was that he thought that had been pretty awful but that what he was encountering post-Sandy was a different kind of worse.  What baffled him the most was how the media seemed over it so soon, how so many people had no idea of how great the devastation was.

So I was super excited when Fraction posted about Hawkeye 7, and when Kelly Sue led the charge over the last day or so to make sure as many people had the chance to be a part of this little piece of making the space we all share a little bit stronger.  You’re still in our hearts, folks out east.

So thanks, Team Hawkguy.  Y’all are pretty awesome.  Cheers.
