Fundraising Reminder

In case you missed it, two weeks ago I posted Shakesville's End-of-Year Fundraiser. There is more information at the link, but the basic gist is this: If you value my work here and/or on Twitter, please remember that Shakesville is run exclusively on donations. I need your support, if you are able to chip in.

This is the last reminder of the year, and now I'll return to every other month reminders.

Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated and/or set up (or increased) a subscription. I am so appreciative. ♥

Once again, let me emphasize that I don't want anyone to feel obliged to contribute financially, especially if money is tight. One of the things I hate most about fundraising is knowing that it might make some people feel bad, if they want to donate but aren't able. I would never presume to tell you how to feel, but please know that I don't want you to feel bad.

What I want is for you to know that, some days, your kind words are the only thing that keeps me going. I need money to survive. It is your encouragement that keeps me doing this work. You support me in many ways, and I am immensely thankful for them all.

I was searching Bitmoji for a cute "thank you" pic with which to end this message, but I found this one instead, and it made me laugh VERY HARD, so here it is!

WHY DOES THIS EVEN EXIST LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL??? "Hi, just popping out of a toilet to say I love you!"

Thank you, Shakers. From the bottom of my heart. And my toilet.
