imagine if everyone who donated to hussie’s kickstarter donated to save pe’sla
I have no problem with people going, “oh, I’d like to see this project related to my fandom happen! I’m going to donate to help make sure it does (and maybe get some cool swag as a reward). Hell, I’m excited about the idea of a Homestuck game, and if I had any money right now, I might have donated.
(And to clarify, I’m not saying that’s necessarily what you think; I’m just throwing that out there in a general way.)
But…the Homestuck fandom raised that fuckton of money so quickly. I’d love to see that sort of momentum go toward saving Pe’Sla.
Like I said, I don’t have any money right now, so I can’t afford to donate. What I can do is signal boost.
SO. To anyone who is reading this (but especially anybody who donated to Hussie’s Kickstarter and can spare a few bucks more for a seriously worthy cause):
The auction of Pe’Sla, the sacred Lakota land, was cancelled, but the land is still for sale. The Lakota, and other people of the Great Sioux Nation, are trying to raise the money to buy the land. If they don’t, the state will probably build a road through it. I shouldn’t have to explain why that’s completely fucked up.
From the Pe’Sla Indiegogo page:
Do you see what the problem is here?
Homestuck fandom just raised over $700,000 in two days. That’s pretty incredible.
I bet we can do it again.
Fandom is capable of incredible things. Prove me right.
