MORE MORE MORE HOW DO YOU LIKE IT
As you may already know, we are currently in the middle of a fundraiser for one of our readers.
Misery (pictured here with me at Comic Con) is a concert photographer and illustrator, who is currently battling some difficult health issues. She is dealing with everything from Lyme Disease to brain lesions, with a couple of damaged heart valves thrown in for shits and giggles.
Did I mention the rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia?
How about the encephalopathy and Bell’s Palsy?
Or how about being hooked up to an oxygen tank and an IV pump all day? Because that sounds like a lot of fun.
There are three things that Misery needs to greatly improve her quality of life:
1. A new iPad, so she can keep her life organized when she’s at the doctor
2. A new mattress (although sleeping on an exercise mat on the kitchen floor sounds like a blast)
3. Paying off a computer loan she was forced to take out when her laptop died
To make this happen, we collected your donated handmade and vintage items, and we’ve been selling them in our WePay store since Friday.
The sale has been going really well, and in fact, we almost sold out. But we haven’t raised enough to get Misery a top of the line mattress, and I really want to make that happen.
So I put out the call for more merchandise in the Regretsy forums, and you assholes came through again! We have now added over one hundred pieces of farm fresh fuckery and it’s waiting in our store for you right now!
Here’s a sample of some of the new stuff we’ve added. Click on the thumbs for a larger image.
And how about this?
Phil Evans of Impossible Bottle has created a special bottle just for us:
“It’s a sealed deck of Steampunk Bicycle Playing Cards inside a glass bottle! I call it The Repurposed Eco-conscious Upcycled Vintage Steampunk Shabby Chic Whimsical Impossible Bottle.”
Or maybe this:
CF4L golfclub covers with handmade pom-poms and Goatse style appliques!
Or maybe this:
A fantastic framed 8 x 8 Community needlepoint by Regretsy reader Caroline, featuring all your favorite characters that I can’t name!
We are really close to making a significant difference in Misery’s life, and I know we’re going to make it happen. So go check out the store, and see if there’s something for you, or someone you know. And even if you don’t want to buy anything, you can donate a few dollars directly to her fund.
Thanks for helping!
