Support independent art!

I'm reposting from the community foc_u, which is reposting from afro_dyte. I've just contributed my bit to the project Tulpa, or Anne&Me, and I'm signal boosting in case any of you haven't seen it.

Well. That didn't work; the repost button didn't. Here's the text, although not the links:
Originally posted by afro_dyte at TODAY is the last day to support "Tulpa, or Anne&Me"
On January 12 at 11:59pm EST, the IndieGoGo campaign for my play, Tulpa, or Anne&Me is ending. Although people have supported the project by contributing a total about $1,700, there is still $1,300 to go.

Let’s break this down mathematically. If only 130 people on LiveJournal each donate just $10 TODAY, Tulpa, or Anne&Me will reach its fundraising goal.

With so many conversations going on about who gets to tell POC stories, the importance of things like “Shit White Girls Say … To Black Girls,” the release of George Lucas’ Red Tails, and otherwise being an ally supporting POC voices in arts and entertainment, your contribution sends a message that it matters to you that POC stories find their way on stage and screen, that it matters who tells these stories, that it matters who benefits from these stories, and that it matters who gets to witness these stories.

Tell the world this matters to you. Take a couple of moments to say so now.

P.S. If you are sick and tired of first-person shooters starring square-jawed White dudes, you should check out and support the Arkh Project too.
