Hi, my name is McCrae. I started watching Big Brother in the summer of '06. I quickly became addicted and scoured the internet for more content. And then one day, I stumbled onto the Holy Grail of Big Brother update sites with a heaping helping of snark. I was in love ever since. I slowly started to become more vocal in the chat during episodes (hold for voting!) I would strike up convo with Dingo by praising her writing and we would talk about other streaming services and the like (JTV.) We became kinda close,( although I suspect she just learned to deal with my insane ramblings) and I picked up some tips for being cast from her site and it was always my Mecca of Big Brother. Time passes, I get cast on BB, I shout her site out during my eviction which leads to her site crashing (whoops!) I come out to the insanity of a post season and Dingo is always there to have my back. She reminds me when I'm being a little punk and she reminds me that people work hard in this community for very little in return. Dingo makes a bit of money off of clicks on her site, people that buy feeds through her links, and people using her amazon reference link, but sadly those avenues of revenue are drying up for not only her but all feeds updaters. I know Dingo has been having medical issues with her kid and I know that 2 season a year has been murder on Dingo without any benefit of extra money for those seasons. I've seen updaters go dark and it makes me sad knowing I could have spoke up for some of the good ones in this community after bitching only about the bad ones for so long. This is why I'm asking people for donations for Dingo. On top of the medical expenses they have and the dwindling revenue through officially sanctioned CBS streams, I would personally love it if we could raise enough money that Dingo wouldn't have to stress out during this upcoming #bb21 season. I think Dingo has been such a pillar in this community when it comes to things like ethics, not using clickbait, advocating against rabies, just someone that makes this community more of a net positive than a net negative. Have you ever read Dingo's tweets? Have you read any articles on Hamsterwatch.com? Have you ever used the site to get east coast feeds or feeds for Canada? Dingo has been doing this for 15+ years at least. I think we all owe her alittle something for that much content and information and entertainment over the years....
100% of all funds raised will go directly to Dingo Hamsterwatch, to help pay existing and upcoming medical bills for her daughter.
