    Default Donations for EoFF Con 2016


    We need your help, nerds. In order to put this event into perspective, we need to start acquiring donations ASAP. It's over a year and a half away, and that seems like a long time, but we need all the time we can get when it comes to planning an event of this caliber.

    If you have no idea what I'm talking about since you've been living under a rock for the past half year, I refer you to the World Meetup/Live Ciddies 2016 thread here.


    Summary
    For years now, the members of Eyes on Final Fantasy have shared a pipe dream of one day holding a massive meetup. "If we could only win the lottery!" we say. "We'll pay for everyone to fly out together and party!"

    There's no lottery involved here, but we're finally making a meetup happen at EoFF Con 2016. June. London. Nerds.


    What We Need & What You Get
    We need your help. We're relying on your donations to get this thing off the ground. We need to secure a venue and catering for this awesome gathering. You get food in your belly, the pleasant company of your fellow nerds mingling, a live awards and performances event, wackiness to ensue, and maybe even musical performances and karaoke. Possible prizes, t-shirts, gift bags to take away as memorabilia. And did we mention booze?


    Other Ways You Can Help
    Some people just can't donate, but that doesn't mean you can't help make this event a reality.

    -Do you know someone who would be willing to sponsor our event? Have them contact us at webmaster@eyesonff.com.
    -Make some noise on social media for us. Seriously. Tweet out, share on Facebook. Talk about this event. Talking about it will make it happen.


    I've made two campaigns for our event. One offers monthly recurring donations, the other you can make a one-time donation at any time.





    So start donating, nerds! Let's make this happen!

    I volunteer BoB to act as a kissing booth participator to those who donate $20 or more.

    Start naming perks you want for donations, nerds. If you are willing to offer perks, name those, too!

    I chipped in 10 bucks. Have some 'crisps' on me.

    You've just earned a hands-on hug from BoB, my friend.

    If we reach $2000 by January, I will recreate the bootay.jpg pose on stage.

    I'm uncertain if there is anyone at EoFF who wants to kiss me. Maybe smittenkitten if I'm being really good...

    EDIT: Also, if anyone is making a massive donation, to cut down on fees please get in touch with me directly for a more direct transfer and we can both confirm the amount you gave to Shorty so it's added to any totals/budgets she may be working on.

    I can donate my time as a guest speaker. All you have to do is pay for my flight and hotel. And Bailey and BJ's. And food. And buy me a London decorative spoon for my decorative spoon collection.

    I'll kiss you, man. So long as it's shorter than the one you gave Danielle at the altar.

    Chipped in $15 for now. Will probably do more next year.

    Will this event be broadcast live? Or will only Brits and Daniel's stalkers be able to enjoy it?
