Donate to #SSAweek and get a personal doodle from me!

EDIT: I’m closing submissions now so I can catch up on the doodles people have requested. I may make the same offer later in the week, so don’t despair!

So far #SSAweek and Blogathon are going strong. $54,337 has been raised, though $50,000 came from the Stiefel Freethought Foundation and the rest came from 86 other donors. I want everyone to know they can make a difference even if they only have $5 to give. That’s just one fancy coffee or beer you can skip in order to support a great cause. My mini-goal is to hit 100 donors by the end of today.

What’s in it for you? I’m sitting at home sniffling and hopped up on strong cold medicine. I’m a little loopy and a little bored. If you donate $5 or more to the Secular Student Alliance, I’ll draw you a custom doodle in EDIT: OpenCanvas, so it won’t be totally crappy! All you have to do is while making your donation, look for the “SSA Week 2012 Topic Suggestion & Mailing Information” header, fill out Blogger with “Jen” or “Blag Hag” and tell me what you want to draw with “Topic Suggestion.”

In case you need further encouragement, you should know I’m armed with a Bamboo drawing tablet and this is some of my past artwork (more examples in this link):

So, donate and give me things to doodle! Let’s reach 100 donors or more by the end of today!

    Donated! I was going to eventually, I think, but this chance pushed me to do it sooner. Yay for doodles!

  2. says

    OK, I forgot to fill out the doodle informations. But I sent $5. So if you have time, I want something superhero-y. Like a Super-person with a FtB or SSA logo. That’d be cool.

    …why, after selecting a radio button that specifies a contribution amount, do you have to enter one manually anyway?

  4. Azkyroth, Former Growing Toaster Oven says

    …uh, I’m not actually getting boxes to enter anything under the “topic suggestions, etc.” section, even on non-third-party browsers…

  5. says

    The radio button is becoming an “active supporter,” which is apparently distinct from simply making a donation. I take it you can do one or the other or both. (It confused me too.)

    grr at you for being both a successful artist and successful grad student >n< JEALOUS.

    Jen…the picture at the bottom is just fantastic and reminds me of M.C. Escher’s work…I was thinking of using the happy atheist as a template for a tattoo. More importantly, I scrolled down and saw the panel discussion and listened to that this afternoon. I thought it was extraordinary. Thanks.

    That (drawing? painting? I’m not sure what you call it when it’s digitally-created) is SO CUTE

  9. Azkyroth, Former Growing Toaster Oven says

    Err, wait. What does “active supporter” mean? O.O

    That is some amazing art. I always wish I could do something like that, but it takes a lot of time and dedication to actually get that good. Thanks for sharing that with us!
