Convention costs for 2016

As I mentioned on twitter, #PAXEast cost me a lot mroe than I planned and it's still the height of convention season. Still looking for a dayjob but the work of #INeedDiverseGames is still my main gig, but can't really pay myself right now.

The funding from Fund Better Tech is dwindling, I still don't have a day job and there's loads going on. If you can spare a bit, I will greatly appreciate it. The #INeedDiverseGames patreon isn't enough to pay for the stuff going on in the next few months, and more importantly the goal of the Patreon is to help others, not fund my own convention travel.

So this is an ask I'm reticent to do but ...there's not a lot else I can do at the moment. Any amount will help and be greatly, greatly appreciated. The breakdown is as follows:

Nebula's: $150 registration and meals (it's local to me)
Wiscon: hotel, pitching in for gas, bus ticket home, meals (est $800 for 1/2 room, & rest) Programming Co-Chair and GOH liaison.
CONVergence: hotel & meals (est $600?) I'm an Invited guest there
Podcast Movement: meals (it's local to me)
