Here's just a small sampling of what YOUR donations have made possible in the last year:
- A serious software upgrade, allowing me to create better quality files at a smaller size. Reduces download time and better functionality.
- Upgrades to Skype, allowing those roundtable discussions to happen that everyone is so fond of. Did you like the science episode? How about interviewing Ross & Carrie or just about every episode of Inciting A Brewhaha? Your donations made upgrading that software and purchasing the recording software possible.
- Not a small thing, the funds provided from donations have helped to offset the costs associated with hosting the podcast and website. Because of the fantastic, continued growth of the listenership, this cost grows every year.
- I've been able to speak at a couple of functions this year. Your donations have helped to offset travel costs so that I was able to attend, and the organizers didn't feel compelled to pay me for my time.
The ways in which your donations have helped make the Riot run are big and small, and this is by no means a complete list. I'm hoping that in the fourth year of the Riot we can continue to do bigger and better things. I'm hoping to continue speaking, continue the roundtable discussions, and provide better content to you, the listeners.
Now... In gratitude, let's get to the SWAG!From now until Friday, October 26, anyone that donates any amount of money to the Riot using the PayPal donate button on the left side of the website is automatically entered to win one of these prizes. The winner will be chosen at random. Because of generosity of the sponsors, we can, again, have 3 prize packages to win!
For one lucky winner, you get the Grand Prize Package that looks a bit like this:
The grand prize package includes a witch hat fascinator and mini besom from Eliora, an earth goddess clay sculpture from Sosanna's Closet, and the fantastic book Utterly Wicked by Dorothy Morrison, as well as a print of your choice from my Etsy shop!
Second prize includes a clay goddess figurine by Sosanna's Closet, a witchy lantern by Eliora, and a print of your choice from my Etsy shop.
Third prize includes a tin of California white sage from Sosanna's Closet and a witchy lantern by Eliora.
There is no minimum donation to enter, but just think about what the Riot means to you and how much you'd pay to keep it running.
I thank you all in advance!
Love and Lyte,
