Support Verb NoireOctober 28, 2009
I don’t do a lot of donation pleading – I figure if you’re reading what I’m writing, you’re probably the kind of person who’s doing what you can, as you can, with the organizations and communities you’re involved with.
I would like to ask you to consider dropping $5 or $10 to firstname.lastname@example.org via Paypal as Verb Noire is in danger of losing the entire print run of it’s first book.
The reason I’m supporting this, like I support the APIA Spoken Word Summit, is that this is a venue giving people space to find their own voices.
If you’ve ever been through some shit, you know sometimes, your own voice is all you got to keep you going through the night. It’s really easy to accept what everyone else is saying, because they have a place for you, a role for you, and that place is failure, and that place is hell. It takes a lot of strength, suffering, and luck to find your way out.
You don’t know how much it means when you see other people doing it.
Or how much it means when other people show you that you can do it for yourself.
So, if anything I’ve ever written, has inspired you, please consider helping out.
