Well, they always do, but- you know what, here:

It’s October, which means we’re only about a month and half away from the universe’s largest (and totally FREE to attend) skeptic convention!

However, we need to ask for your help–we’re only about halfway to our fundraising goal.

Each year, our small team of volunteers work tirelessly to put together this event. Every dollar raised goes directly to making the convention happen–no one takes a salary or honorarium.

I’ve attended, and I can vouch that it’s pretty dang amazing. Huge crowds, friendly crowds, excellent line-up, counter-protests. Even if you don’t plan on attending, donations help subsidize a “ticket” for someone who can’t afford a typical atheoskeptical conference.

If you like Skepticon and want to help make it a reality, consider doing one of the following:

    Donate some dollars (we appreciate every cent!)
    Register for skepticon ($100 dollar donors get a special prize!)
    Give monthly and join the Dino Club (you get some sweet perks!)
    Pre-order a t-shirt (guarantee you get the size you need!)
    Become a sponsor (hello we are skepticon and we love our sponsors!)
    Take out an ad in our program (dino-themed advertisements preferred!)
    Host a workshop with us (let’s be awesome together!)
    Table at our event (friends that table together stay together)
    Talk about us on social media to help spread the word (Twitter or Facebook!)

We’re sure that with your help, we’ll be able to make this year a reality.
