Help Nyx Get to 2020 FotP Zine Fest

I'm Jaime Nyx, and my life revolves around zines.  While it feels a little weird saying that, zines are what my world is about. Zines have given me a voice and a purpose in a world that doesn't know how to put me to work thanks due to mental health issues as well as chronic illness.

I've devoted all my time to creating a space for both new and old zinemakers in the form of SeaGreenZines.com where I post about zines, review them, and join in with various zine activities. I also make videos about them on YouTube and podcast about them in The Zine Collector podcast.

It's this passion for zines that sees me asking you for help in this GoFundMe. My goal? To go to Melbourne's amazing and iconic Festival of the Photocopier 2020. 

Last year I was able to attend for one (awesome) day, and I'm hoping to be able to to attend the full two days this year.

I live in Murray Bridge (about 655 kilometers/407 miles away from Melbourne) on a very limited budget. I also require my carer to travel with me for events like these, which makes attending events even more difficult. 

This GoFundMe is to cover the costs involved in going to this event:

*Accommodation
*Car tune up
*Petrol
*Parking

Anything above goal will go toward:

*Related costs for attending the second day
*Food on the trip
*Supplies for making zines for the fest




Whether you share this, donate, or wish me good wishes, know that I am incredibly grateful to you. As I said, zines are my life, and I do what I do from a place of gratitude. Know that I will always be doing everything in my power to give back and show the kindness that has been shown to me.
