I figured I’d be missing CPAC his year as I didn’t have the cash and didn’t want to re dig the hole I dug from the last time I went without having the funds handy.
But while praying my rosary at work the thought came to send out a pledge bleg to tip jar hitters (not subscribers as their funds are being used for regular expenses and they are already kicking in weekly or monthly)
So if you received said bleg A quick update to all those who got my private cpac bleg (If you didn’t get it that might be because I only sent out half the emails before I hit the sack yesterday morning) right now I’m about half way home to the CPAC goal with several emails still to open.
So right now it’s looking pretty good.
If you have an interest in me going to CPAC please you can kick in by hitting Datipjar, if you do please specify that said tip jar hit is for CPAC and be aware of two things
- any such hits will not appear in my annual goal because it is a special bleg.
If I fail to raise enough I will be offering refunds to those who kicked in as of right now I’m between $900 &1400 shy of my goal
I’m missed CPAC the last two years due to lack of funds but if there was ever a year to go it’s this one.
I’ll keep you informed on how it goes.
UPDATE: Since this post went up a few more hits came in so we’re at $1100 in cash and pledges and my work confirmed they’ll give me the unpaid time off, so only $700 to go for cheap hotel plus cabs or $1200 for walking distance
Up to $1266 $550- $1050 to go checking with friends about splitting a walking distance room to save $ no luck so far
Update Final: Well not only did the drive reach over $2100 but I managed to get expenses down to $1659 so the surplus could go to new business cards, cleaning the suits and scarfs and buying the cannoli and still have some leftover to put toward the replacement card I’ll be needing later this year.
And just as important my press credentials were confirmed. Thanks to all who kicked in, see you at CPAC
