reminder: double your donation to Con or Bust through Monday

In addition to the auction, of course, Con or Bust is also delighted and grateful to accept donations to help fans of color/non-white fans attend SFF cons! Moreover, thanks to a matching gift from an anonymous donor, any regular donation (not an auction payment or a T-shirt order) that is received through Monday, May 4, will be matched until the gift of $250 is met.

You can donate with a PayPal account or a credit card (after you click the orange button below, click “Continue” on the left side of the screen, above the credit card logos). On the “review your donation” screen, please click “Add special instructions to the seller” and state that this is for the matching gift. (Soon there will be many, many auction payments to process and this will make bookkeeping immensely easier.)

And if you’d like to add to the matching gift itself, that would exceptionally be wonderful; email me at to arrange it.

Thanks, and please spread the word!


  1. I am having a mysterious problem with the donate button– it just sends me to PayPal home. I’ve tried in a couple of browsers. Is the button wrong? Am I wrong? Is there an address I should just send money to via PayPal?

  2. Wow, thank you for telling me! I think I know what happened and I think it should be fixed; try it now?

  3. Huzzah! It works now!
