Gathering funds for the Archive
In the past week I have been very frustrated that I can't volunteer at the ASIFA Animation Archive on Saturdays. So I figure the next best thing I can do is donate to the archive. I began picking up all the loose change I witness, mostly at the movie theater I work at. Surprisingly this has been very effective, and I have gathered over 12 dollars in one week in loose change alone. I am also going to begin asking for small donations ($.50-$10) from my family and friends, and taking a small percent out of my paychecks. I am hoping to become a Project Hero, and if I collect enough funds quickly enough, maybe a Project Angel.
I recommend everyone who reads this or supports the Archive to start doing the same. If you don't feel like taking any money from your paychecks, just start to gather loose change, it really starts to accumulate quickly. Being charitable and preserving animation is the best thing one can do.
For the Archive!
