After much urging from friends & mentors, I’m starting an Indie-Go-Go campaign to get myself out of $8,000 (yikes) of combined medical & dental debt. Please consider donating — no amount is too small, and every bit helps. If you’re not able to make a monetary donation, please consider spreading the word about this campaign. Re-post, share, blog, tweet about it, etc. Every single bit of help is deeply appreciated.
EDITED ON JULY 20TH 2012 AT 4:40PM TO ADD: Oh my stars & garters, people! It’s been not even 24 hours since I launched this campaign, and I’m already at over $1,100 (over an eighth of the way there!). This is fucking incredible. I’m so touched by your generosity of spirit. Please keep spreading the word. Remember that no contribution is too small, and that signal boosts are just as vital & helpful as financial contributions.
EDITED ON AUGUST 9TH TO ADD: Folks, I’ve got another $4,455 to raise, and another 39 days to do so on Indie-Go-Go. The outpouring of love & support (both emotional & financial) has meant the world to me. Please keep it up & keep the signal boosts & donations coming.

Hey folks. I’ve got NINETEEN days left to raise funds on Indie-Go-Go to get all my medical & dental debt paid off. The love & support I’ve gotten over the past 6 weeks has been nothing short of AMAZING! And now I’m in the very final push.
Thus far, I’ve received $3990 on Indie-Go-Go and $620 in personal checks from folks. That means I’ve got $4,610 of the debt covered! That’s over half-way there, and that is AWESOME!
However, I’m not done yet. This last couple weeks is gonna be crucial to me meeting my goal, so I want to ask a few favors of you:
1) To those of you who have contributed and/or signal-boosted — THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. If you could, *please* consider signal-boosting again. Word of mouth REALLY seems to be driving the success of this campaign.
2) If you haven’t spread the word about this yet, now’s your opportunity! :)
3) Remember that no contribution is too small, and that contributions of time & energy are just as meaningful as financial contributions.
Lots of love & so so SO much thanks,
