I originally, rather cheekily, set up a post on my blog asking people to help me pay for my friend Bob to get to the QED conference in March 2012. I didn’t think I would raise enough for his ticket (with some money left over) within two hours – people are generous and it was very humbling to see.
That’s £89 raised in two hours… imagine how many people we could buy tickets for if we all donated a bit!
So… I had this radical plan, and it’s partly through Bobs suggestion of him ‘paying the kindness forwards’ – what if I kept the donations open to see how much I could raise overall and to see how many skeptics who can’t afford a ticket we can send to QED next March through donations from those able to afford a few pounds extra?
If 20 people donate just £4.50 we can get one person to QED.
Last year I only managed to get a QED ticket because people donated the money, so this is also me paying the kindness forwards.
I’ve just donated £30 but even if you can only spare £2 that would be equally as awesome!
