If this post is deemed inappropriate by the mods, I apologise in advance.
I've been dragging my feet about posting this here, but we're down to just over 48 hours left, and we're far short of our goal. I'm not terribly active in the community, but I've played some games with some of you. Hopefully, I've made enough of a positive impression to warrant some consideration.
A close family friend (he's essentially family to us) is getting married in April in Illinois. The happy couple would like my son, KFP, to be the ringbearer. Unfortunately, Illinois is far enough from Pennsylvania to make it an expensive trip for us right now; a little too expensive.
We really want to go to the wedding and have KFP participate as the ringbearer, so my wife has started a campaign on Indiegogo (http://igg.me/at/ringbearer-illinois). We're offering a wide variety of perks: a PDF bundle of games from Atomic Sock Monkey Games, books by independent authors, artwork, poetry from my wife (an MFA in poetry), even some editing and web consulting services. Go check out the perks, there may be something that appeals to you, could be used as a gift, or could even be used to improve a business venture.
I know it's not as dramatic or universally important as paying medical expenses or recovering from some other tragedy, but it is important to us. Any help you can give is deeply appreciated.
