First of all, I’d like to apologize for not having this up yesterday. My short flight home from Chicago turned into a 12 hour rerouting all over the US and I didn’t get to CA until 9pm.

Thank you to everyone who spread the word and attended the Stargate for S4K fundraiser on Sunday. It was a huge success.

A special thank you to Kim and Kenn who went above and beyond what we ever expected for promotion. Thank you! I also want to give a great big thank you to those who donated items for the fundraiser. Stacey, Merri, Harmony and to those of you that donated items during the event. I’m so sorry we were too busy to get your names but we haven’t forgotten you or your generosity, thank you. Your generosity enabled us to raise more money than we thought we could. Paula, there are no words to adequately describe how much your generosity meant to us. Your contributions were a major part of why this fundraiser was so successful. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And last but certainly not least, Angie. What can I say but without her, we wouldn’t have even had a fundraiser. We approached Angie almost a year ago when we set the fundraiser in motion to see if she would be willing to design a few things for us. 99% of the designs we used were all Angie. Thank you Angie, you made life just a little bit easier for us and a whole lot geekier for everyone else.

As previously announced, we will not be announcing the total from the event until August 28th. We will combine that total with the virtual fundraiser total and announce a grand total on the 28th.

And speaking of the virtual fundraiser, that kicks off today!

Hello visitors! You may have noticed that I haven’t announced this years birthday project to benefit Sanctuary for Kids yet. There’s a very good reason for that, we’re trying something new this year. Instead of collecting donations for Sanctuary for Kids and cards for Amanda, we’re doing a fundraising event at The Westin following the Stargate Convention in Chicago on Sunday August 17th.

It will be all inclusive so fans of all three shows will find something that interests them. There will be no cover charge, the event is free to all. You do not have to be a con attendee in order to come to the event because this event is in no way affiliated with the Convention or Creation. If you live in the Chicago area, please feel free to attend whether you’re attending the convention or not. Although the event is free, this is a fundraiser so our goal is to raise as much money as possible; we will be accepting donations for S4K at the door and via various donation boxes throughout the room and no contribution is too small if you are able to give.All donations must be in cash or via the Sanctuary for Kids website made on your phone.

We have raffle items, auction items, game prizes, giveaway and goodie bags. We have unique items designed especially for us and this event that will be part of the raffle/auction or as a prize/giveaway. We’ve even designed a game (Cards Against Goa’uld anyone?) that we’ll raffle off at the end of the evening.

Doors will open at 7pm (exact meeting room location TBA) and will run until everyone falls asleep on us or 11pm, whichever comes first. All donations and auction bids must be cash only or sent via the Sanctuary for Kids website on your phone. We have no way to accept credit cards at this time nor will we accept any checks. We will accept donations in CAD and US dollars though.

If you will not be in Chicago on Sunday night, we will be having an online auction, raffle and giveaway when we return home. It will run from August 19th until August 27th. It will contain many of the same items that will be at the fundraising event, and maybe a few different ones.

While we’ll be informing our contact at Sanctuary for Kids the total raised in Chicago, we’re going to wait to publicly announce our grand total until August 28th. With the convention taking place so close to Amanda’s birthday, we decided this would be a fun way to raise money for Sanctuary for Kids and a great way for fandom to come together and wish everyone’s favorite Grand Empress a “Happy Birthday”

More information and a flyer are to come in the next couple of days. Please spread the word, and if you have any questions or comments you can reach me via email (amandatappingonline@gmail.com) or twitter (ATOnline).

And as always 100% of everything raised will go directly to Sanctuary for Kids. This is not an official Sanctuary for Kids fundraiser, just the crazy brainchild of two would-be event planners, but we have spoken with the higher ups over at S4K and have their approval.

I thought I posted this already but I guess not.

Kid Cannabis is now available on DVD and Blu-ray. The DVD is $27.99 and the blu-ray is $29.98 (Amazon has it on sale for $26.93). There are no extras on either the DVD or the blu-ray.

By it on Amazon now.

The next fundraiser for Sanctuary for Kids that I had planned has hit a small snafu, therefore I’m posting a poll to gauge interest. I wanted to wait to until August to unveil this but some things behind-the-scenes have forced my hand early.

The fundraiser is an event that will be held in Chicago during the Stargate Con. It will be all inclusive so fans of all three shows will find something that interests them. There will be no cover charge, the event is free to all. We will be accepting donations for S4K at the door if you would like to make a small contribution, you are not obliged to though. We have raffle items, auction items, game prizes, giveaway and goodie bags. We have unique items designed especially for us and this event that will be part of the raffle or as a prize/giveaway. We’ve even designed a game (Cards Against Goa’ulds anyone?) that we’ll raffle off at the end of the evening. We’ve been planning an event similar to this for years, we just live in different countries (US and Canada) so it’s not an easily accomplished thing.

Originally we talked to The Westin and had it planned for Saturday night. That seemed like the best time to avoid overlapping anything Creation had planned. Until just a little while ago, all plans were a go for a fun evening on Saturday to benefit charity. Creation has gotten involved and won’t let us hold the event in the hotel on the day we had planned. They’re only allowing us to hold it on either Thursday or Sunday night. Since those days are when everyone is arriving/leaving I decided to post a poll to see if anyone would attend on those days. We’ve been really excited about this and now we’re trying to regroup and determine what the best way to go about this is.

We’ll be doing a different type event in the future that is completely Amanda related but we thought a Stargate themed night would be fun and a great way to raise money for charity.

And as always 100% of everything raised will go directly to Sanctuary for Kids. This is not an official Sanctuary for Kids fundraiser, just the crazy brainchild of two would-be event planners, but we have spoken with the higher ups over at S4K and have their approval.

If you could promote this poll to any con attendees you know, I’d really appreciate it.
