Help Me Get an ADD Diagnosis and Treatment

Update posted by AB Silvera On Jul 25, 2017

Greetings again to one and all!

Holy smackaroons, friends, I'm truly humbled that we got this far. Honestly I didn't think this campaign would do this well. Nearly 70% funded! It's amazing. And you're amazing. You've been sharing it, you've been talking about it, you've been talking me up to your pals, and you've been donating and getting your mates to donate. You have been incredible and have me feeling I'm not alone in dealing with all of this. It felt quite insurmountable when I first came up with the idea of doing a fundraiser. And now things just feel possible, you know? It sounds like a small thing, but the feeling of being able to find a way to work through a big problem, the concept that this problem may have solutions that can be enacted. All I'm saying is it's big, and it feels big, and it feels awesome and most of all it feels kind.

For our final week we have a new reward: a pack of 3 zines by my talented friend Niamh K. Niamh is a comedian and zinester from Ireland based in Wales, and her geekery and love for wrestling are goddamn infectious. So it's just as well she's done zines on wrestling and other parts of geek culture! Three of them, available as a single pack for a reward price of £7!

Not to mention there are still plenty of other rewards still available! You could get a small crocheted item, for example. It would go brilliantly with what you're wearing. Looking cute, by the way, keep doing whatever you're doing. Anyway, you could also get a class from the incredible Lora O'Brien, who teaches a number of classes related to Irish history, culture and spirituality. You could get a screen-printed t-shirt from B which would definitely brighten your day and make you happy to wear it. And you can get a painting from the ridiculously talented Frak Art. Seriously, I'm blessed to be surrounded by all these talented people that have kindly donated their art, their work, their services and their creativity.

So we're at the final week! Please keep sharing the link to the fundraiser if you can. If you've been considering a donation, now's your chance before it's gone! I am certain we can get to the donation target in a week, or at least pretty damn close to it. I believe in it, and I believe in you, tonight.

love,

yr friendly neighbourhood AB Silvera

I promised you more rewards were coming, so buckle up, buster, and get ready for some truth juice! OKAY!

First off we have the talented B who will screen-print you a t-shirt with one of the following rad queer slogans:

-Gert Lush Well Queer

-they them theirs

-self love club

-non-binary is beautiful

-how dare you assume I'm straight?


The fabulous B has also provided their services to make a plushie to order as a reward. Their plushies are BEAUTIFUL! Adorable! Motivational! Full of fluffy bits inside of them!

And last but certainly not least, you can purchase an online class from Lora O'Brien. Lora is a good friend who teaches authentic cultural and spiritual connection to Ireland. If you'd like to learn more, check out her very comprehensive site at http://loraobrien.net/. Lora is the real deal, a no-bulshit, authentic guide to the world of Irish culture and heritage, and I recommend her wholeheartedly!

That's it for today! There's still more rewards a-coming but not for the next few days. In the meantime, enjoy the sunshine if, like, it's sunny where you are or whatever, or enjoy just, living and breathing oxygen. That's pretty neat, eh? Enjoy that. AND SHARE THE HELL OUTTA THIS FUNDRAISER! DEFIANT! WORMHOLE! ZOOM!
