Portland,OR PanOmniElfKin Meet Fund

$33 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 18 months
The Portland, Oregon Pan/Omni ElfKin Meet is a thus far small, but growing nonprofit and not-for-profit business and organisation in the Portland, Oregon Metropolitan area. 
We who meet here are Elf-identifieds--of many types, identified as being from many worlds of origin--Seeli, UnSeeli, and Other courts are both represented amongst our members as are worlds that have pledg'd allegiance un2 neither of those or any other courts, and there are those amongst us who are not Court-affiliated with any court at all, including some who are 'solitary' elfKin who occasionally choose for 2 'click' with others like un2 themselves. 
Hybrids ar welcomed amongst us.
The owner and founder of the group's on disability and our husband and ourselves (I'm a soul collective, not using 'royal' we) are not legally married until we're certain how it would affect the disability payments. 
If ye are ElfKin or HybridKin (hobbitses ar welcome--the owner's husband's a hobbit/elf/human hybrid) 
5 dollar amounts are very helpful, more is of course helpful also.
The funds will be utilised towards supporting:
members who are struggling either financially or medically
helping fund transportation un2 conventions, faires, SCA/Med-Ren and pirate eventses for low-income and/or struggling members, including Cat Faye, (Queen of Elfhame and LilyWillyCat's fostermother/Jesse hubby's mother-in-law). 
Please help and:

Alma na le: Blessings/Good luck/Good fortune un2 you (Quenya Elvish: the archaic speech of the Quendi--Tolkienian Elves)

We are a nonprofit group in Portland, OR--private, small, and we are a group of diverse OtherKin who are identified as ElfKin--amongst our numbers are included:
Those identified as Quendi
Those identified as Pixies
Those identified as Forgotten Realms Elf folk of various tribes (Seldarine, Sun Elves, etc.)
As well as those identified as having soul aspects who are an elf from realities people 'mongst our own numbers are writing world-histories ('novels')--about.
Most amongst our number include Pagan elements in our practice, tho' not all of our number are religiously Pagan.
The owner and founder is also on disability--and almost every member is currently low income or in at least one case no reliable personal income.
We are attempting to raise enow for our group to:

feed members when they are low on cash
Help our members get to scififantasy/Faery-related/Medieval/Renaissance Re-enactment events even when their personal income wouldn't allow them to comfortably afford attending and/or enjoying the food, vendors, etc.
As needed to be able to help our members feed family and/or help afford medicine, etc. when the need ariseth.
Travel money (as needed) even when their personal incomes/income balance wouldn't permit it on their own
And, of course: Coffee. Grins.
We have no formal official religion--we're welcoming of all who have elf of some sort as a portion of their identity irrespective of reality it's from. (We welcome 'FictionKin')
Whether you laugh at us, do but find us amusing, silly, or even whether you think--rightly--that we're weirdos (most of us would proudly confess it--grins), we do, each in slightly diff'rent ways take this identity seriously and we are a group that hath been around since late 2007 in Portland Oregon. (We started our Internet presence on yahoo)
We have a few regulars, and we're working to grow our numbers--and we need your help, goodly folk of all species identities, to continue to help grow both our numbers and our ability to fund our numbers and our presence at events around the Pacific NW as a group even when personal funds for our members and/or those who'd like to be members--are low or worse-than-low.
Good luckluckluck!
