Welcome to the Twin Suns Foundations second major fundraiser for 2017!
In the past most of our fundraisers have been focused on helping with the Expanded Universe Movement's goal of seeking a continuation of the Legends Universe, with extra funds going towards purchasing Legends books to be donated. Counting both the Billboard Campaign and our Winter Fundraiser, we were not only able to accomplish our stated goal but also able to purchase and donate a total of 144 legends books. However, the foundation has always expressed an interest in doing fundraisers specifically for donating books and now we are launching the first, of hopefully many, of these such campaigns.
Introducing the Hyper Reads Drive. A fundraiser who's primary purpose is to purchase and donate Legends books. For this campaign we have partnered with the 501st Southern California Garrison and are aiming at donating around $2500 worth of books to Children's Hospital of Orange County in Southern California. The fundraiser will last until the 1st of October, with the books being donated in person by Twin Suns Foundation and 501st members on the 26th of October.
Now you have probably noticed by now that our fundraiser goal is $3000 even though we are planning on purchasing $2500 worth of books. The reason for the difference is that now for the first time in our history we are able to offer shirts, bookmarks and other rewards that we have wanted to do for a long time but never had the ability to offer. The $500 will be used to pay for the PayPal fees and cover the purchasing and shipping for those perks. However some of the perks are limited so as to keep our overall goal to a reasonable level and ensure that more of the funds are going to the books than to the perks.
$10.00 - Three Twin Suns Foundation Bookmarks
Donate $10.00 or more and we will send you three Twin Suns Foundation book marks for use when you are ready to take a break from a good book. (They even work on books not dealing with stories in a galaxy far far away!)
$20.00 - Five Twin Suns Foundation Bookmarks Ability to ask questions in our second AMA
For $20.00 or more we will send you five of those lovely Twin Suns Foundation bookmarks and you will also be eligible to enter into our second Ask Me Anything. Questions can be directed at any Twin Suns Foundation team member and if you are eligible you will be permitted to ask as many questions as you would like!
$50.00 - Twin Suns Foundation Rising Sun Poster (Limited to 25)
Donate $50.00 or more and we will send you a 16" x 20" poster featuring the Twin Suns Foundation Planet Logo, the same logo that was used on the Twin Suns Foundation banner at Star Wars Celebration! However, please note this perk is limited to only 25, so if you want one of these be sure to donate early!
$75.00 - Twin Suns Foundation T-Shirt (Limited to 15)
Donate $75.00 or more and we will send you a Twin Suns Foundation T-Shirt designed to be similar to those worn by volunteers at the Twin Suns Foundation book at Celebration Orlando! Wear your Twin Suns Foundation pride as you go about your business! But be sure to move along to that donate button quickly as we are only able to provide fifteen of these shirts during this fundraiser!
$100.00 - Autographed Shannon McRandle Prints (Limited to 10) and a guest spot on the Princes of the Universe Podcast hosted by Matt Wilkins
Donate $100.00 or more and we will send you one of our few remaining autographed Shannon McRandle prints sent to us by Shannon herself! Be sure to act quickly if you plan on obtaining one of these as we only have ten left to give out during this fundraiser! Additionally, our friend Matt Wilkins has offered to have anyone who donates $100.00 or more as a guest host on his podcast Princes of the Universe! This portion of the perk is not limited to ten, so if you do miss out on the prints you can still take advantage of this part of the perk!
All perks that are limited are available on a first come first serve basis and we will do our best to update when a perk runs out. Non U.S. donors wishing to claim perks may need to help with shipping. In order to ensure that perks are available for as many people possible, TSF team members are not eligible for any limited perks!
And that should about do it! We hope you are able to help us provide new books to the kids at Children's Hospital of Orange County! Whether you are able to donate or not at this time, we would appreciate you spreading the word about this fundraiser!
