Be a patron of the arts!

Your contribution can help a starving writer/crafter (no, not me) write his next novel and develop a novel new idea involving handmade papers and seeds. I’m talking about Carl-Bear Bussjaeger, long-time freedomista, who explains it all at that link.

Once he reaches his goal, 50% of all further contributions will go to three named charities — one for animals, one for guns, one for kids.

Even if you can’t contribute, please spread the word via your blog, your Facebook page, or any appropriate forums and listservs.

    I’ve read Net Assets and loved it.

    On the Contribution page, there is a reference to Facebook connection. Will my information go there? (If so, all bets are off.)

    Pat, I don’t know. I expect Carl will drop in soon & will be able to answer that.

    @Pat: The only Facebook ref I can see on the contribution page is a “Like” button. The easiest way to avoid going there is to not press the button (which you’d need a FB account for anyway). If you’re seeing something else, tell me what browser you’re using, and describe the link.

    If you don’t want any identifying info to appear on the public campaign page, click the anonymous button in Step 3 (or select name-only, or use a nym).

    Pat, I just looked while making my own contribution. The Facebook bit seems voluntary (as is a “tweet this donation” button that comes up later). Don’t mind the social media whoring. Hard to avoid these days, but in this case not mandatory.

    Also, donations can be made by name or anonymously and if you select anonymous you can still make a comment, but only Carl should be able to see it.

    OK, thanks, both Carl and Claire.
