On Show #115, we made a plea, albiet a weak one, for listeners to help send us to the Portable Media Expo on Ontario, CA in September. True, the request wasn't very well thought out, but a few days of Ricolas and a lot of Hot Wings helped clarify things.
We figured we would roughly need around $800 for two round trip tickets to California and for hotel accomodations. So as of right now, we are starting The "Help Send Jawbone to the PME" Campaign. Here's what we're doing: You can start donating by clicking on the graphic below. This will take you to a form to donate.
For every donation over $50, you'll get an actual original 8 1/2 x 11 black and white drawing done specifically for you by me and delivered to your doorstep via the US mail.
Also for any donation you make, you will be placed into a drawing for a guest spot on an upcoming episode of Jawbone Radio.
Lastly, for the first person who donates over $200, you will get an original drawing (your choice) of one of the Jonathan Coulton "Thing A Week" Images. These are pretty valuable to me and it pains me to let any of these go, but I'm willing to do it for the good of the show.
So that's it. Hopefully, this isn't considered too cheesy and it all ends nicely with Nora and I on a plane to Ontario in September. Thanks for being fans of the show everyone. And even if we don't make it there, at least it will be fun to see if we can.
