I’m delighted to say the World SF Travel Fund has reached its fund-raising goal of $6000, enabling us not only to send Charles Tan to the World Fantasy Convention this year (where he is nominated for the award!) but to send a second candidate next year to another major convention.
We’ve spoken to the people at Peerbackers (who have been wonderful throughout) and we’re going to increase the goal, to try and raise enough money for three years of operations, or at the very least to cover the paypal and peerbackers cost (which come out of the total).
I want to thank anyone who donated! And please continue to spread the word and give if you can (remember you get your money’s worth in e-books!) and let’s try to keep going and send a third deserving person on their way in 2013!
