ClexaCon – the fabulous Media & Entertainment Convention for LGBTQ Women and Allies, taking place April 5-9, 2018 in Las Vegas that we LOVE and can’t wait to go back to next year – has a scholarship fund. The scholarship fund, which you can read all about at their website, has a goal of raising $25,000 to help with travel costs and expenses for some panelists and attendees who would not otherwise be able to attend.
We had a transformative experience at ClexaCon in 2017, and we want to help people have a similarly awesome experience. Fangirl Shirts made a donation to the Scholarship Fund – and you can too, right here. As of September 27, 2017, the fund has raised $8,220 of the $25,000 goal. ClexaCon will collect donations until October 31, 2018. We want to help them get closer to that goal.
So in addition to the donation we’ve already made, we’re going to do this: between today and October 31, we are designating five of our shirts as “ClexaCon Scholarship Fund Beneficiary Shirts.” We’ll donate 50% of the proceeds from these designs to the ClexaCon Scholarship Fund.
The shirts are our ship shirts that celebrate some of our favorite women-loving-women pairings from some of our favorite shows. If you’ve been thinking about getting one of these shirts but haven’t yet, buy it before October 31 and half the proceeds will go to help someone attend ClexaCon next year!
And, if you already own all of these shirts, but still want to help, we encourage you to donate to the ClexaCon 2018 Scholarship Fund directly. Also, the deadline for applications for scholarships, September 30, 2017, is fast approaching, so if you’ve been intending to apply, don’t put it off!
See you in Vegas, baby!
