Help One Of My Blogging Idols to Afford A Computer!

April 28, 2010

Hey friends!  I’m really excited about this dana (generosity) drive for one of my oldest blogging inspirations, brownfemipower of Flip Flopping Joy.  Her latest computer has died on her, and after decades (in blog-years) of providing brilliant, soulful commentary in a dope synthesis of journal/journalistic blogging on radical mamis, motherhood, U.S. immigration, wisdom, resistance, healing, and community, it’s high time she got a decent machine worthy of her gifts.  The target amount to secure a MacBook Pro: $2000.

The reason I’m fundraising for so big of an amount is because I have been working on second hand/hand me down computers for about six years now–the entirety of my time blogging. And that means that I’ve gone through a ton of computers. I’ve had one catch on fire, one of them the cat broke, another one the little mouse nob in the middle of the keyboard doesn’t work anymore (so I have no mouse), and of course, this last one–the keyboard is broken.

And as if the opportunity for awesome radical POC artist solidarity and sharing weren’t enough, BFP is giving away gifts corresponding to the amount donated.  Cards!  Zines!  Sur-prizes!  Fabulous.

She’s already halfway there.  Go pitch in!

Happy Wednesday, y’all.

    girl….you don’t know how much this made me smile–because YOU are the one who always inspires me!!! Remember that post you did a long time ago, the one where you said, breathe–relax your shoulders!

    I STILL think about that, and find myself knotting the knot back there–you remind me *regularly* to take care of myself. for that, I should be organizing fundraising for YOU!!!! :D

    so much love
