Erika May (artist) needs some help.......

Post by pandasex » Fri Dec 25, 2009 8:16 am

A friend and great artist is very close to her goal to make an album. But she still needs a few hundred. And with just a few days left could you please help with a 5 dollar or 20 dollar whatever you can do. It will not take any of the donations unless this goal is met. I donated myself and can vouch for it being legit. I have met her she is a great gal and fire dancer.

We're ALL artists here, in one form or another.
Asking for direct handouts like that here on eplaya really pisses me off. I'm probably not the only one, either.

If I'm wrong, well hell, everyone send me $20 too! The Land Yacht could use some new parts. And at least it directly benefits a lot of burners!

Donations, donations, gimme, gimme, gimme. Until money grows on trees or I get one of the gubbermint's printing presses I have to be very selective where the little bit of extra coin I have these days goes. I choose to go for maximum bang for the buck. Salvation Army, homeless missions here in Denver, or a special charity in KC hell yes, but for an artist to make an album? Not feeling it. Not when an artist has many other ways to create content and raise funds. Sorry...I won't be donating and frankly I can't believe this got posted here. IMHO it needs to be yanked...if it was fundraising for something that will be on the playa that's another story but this one doesn't fly with me. Anyone else agree or am I standing way out in left field again?

yeah, but, it's kind of like walking past the destitute panhandler........you almost want to give them money, some times you do.....but, feel guilty when you don't.....it'd just be easier not to see them at all........

Worse, if it's someone you know (real or on a board)......harder to say "no", so, more guilt when you do.........
and resentment for being put in the position to say "no".....


Of course, that's just me.......
