General Board / Raising money!
« on: May 14, 2012, 06:28:18 PM »
I am moving this year and decided that if Ben and AFP can do it, so can I!  I decided to start a small kick-starer page to raise a little extra to help with the move as well as get some basic medical check-ups I haven't had in a decade due to having my own piano teaching business and non-existent/sh*tty 'insurance'.  Every tiny bit helps!  If all my friends gave 1-5 dollars I would be flying toward my goal!

Originally I wasn't going to post this here, but when Ben himself Re-tweeted my link, I figured if he thought it was a good cause, you guys would too!  <3

The whole story and more details are here:

News / MORE BEN FOLDS MERCH - SIGNED POSTERS!
« on: February 08, 2010, 09:50:19 PM »
All right folks, posters are going to go down a little differently than the t-shirts. Instead of putting a set price there is going to be a $10 MINIMUM on them. Offer what you think is fair. A lot of these are rare promos and autographed posters. This isn't exactly first come first serve. But the prices are not going to get outrageous either. We want the going prices to both be fair to the salesman and the buyer.

Also, a note about t-shirts:  Buy 3 shirts and get a 4th shirt free! Joe picks the 4th one, all you do is tell him what size! + $10. shipping to USA, shipping will increase accordingly for the rest of the world.
