Hello beautiful community!!
It was really shocking, to come back to the page and see that the conference was already over halfway funded. Have you ever received an unexpected discount on something at a store, and it just made your day? It felt like that, but much bigger, and more important.
I wanted to thank those of you who already donated such generous amounts for your incredible support! It’s thanks to people like you that our conference is able to run smoothly and be accessible for everyone who wishes to attend.
Accounting for dietary restrictions, quality (recyclable!) publicity materials, and general campus event guidelines can be impressively difficult to pay for, so every little bit helps. Once again, thank you for your support.
Please help us by keeping on spreading the word!
