Help Get US to WiS3

Help 3 people get to Women in Seccularism. 

Alex, Miranda, and I (Ania) are hoping to get to WiS3 this year. Not only does it seem a great conference, but there is so much opportunity to learn, and a chance to connect with friends we haven't met in person. 

Here's the problem. I am trying to get on disability because of a long term health issue (Crohn's and Arthritis) and I have to wait for the court date before making any money. 

Alex is a PhD student so he just makes enough to pay rent but not tuition. 

Miranda is a new nurse, who spent a month volunteering. 

Our funds are low and there is no way we would be able to make it there on our own. 

The funds above would pay for the registration for Ania and Alex, 1 hotel room for the three of us, and the cheapest way of getting there (most likely driving) as well as help out with some incidental expenses. We are going to do everything as cheap as possible. Please help if you can. 

**If you choose a con reward, feel free to enter the hotel address as the shipping address: 400 Courthouse Square, Alexandria, Virginia 22314

Hey Everyone,

Thanks to a generous donation, Alex, Miranda, and my tickets have been taken care of. As such, I am going to up the ante a little bit. If I make my goal, I will use the money that would have gone towards buying a ticket to purchase a table at the con and sell my artwork and a variety of other products of mine. If you would like to help make that happen, I would really appreciate it. In return, I will donate a percentage of my profits (from the con table) to either the con itself, to help fund a speaker at the event to be able to speak at other events (Miri), OR towards a grant to help people be able to come to the con next year!

Please distribute my contribution's worth of hugs and handshakes equitably among the needy at the conference and along your travels.

I won't be at the con, so I guess give someone someone else some free pierogies. Or don't. It doesn't really matter. :)

I can't make it this year but I hope this helps. Please give the pierogi to someone who will appreciate them.
