The Organization for Transformative Works is completely, totally, 100% supported by fans like you. Without you there would be no Archive of Our Own, no Fanhackers, no Fanlore, no Legal Advocacy, and no Open Doors.
There’s no other way to say it: we need you.
Your participation supports our ongoing costs. Your generosity purchases new and upgraded hardware. At the end of the day, the OTW succeeds because of you.
Over the next few days, on all our news outlets including Dreamwidth, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, LiveJournal, Tumblr, and Twitter, you’ll read about seven reasons why the OTW is awesome. These may be things you already value us for, or things that are new to you.
But it is you who make us awesome. We’re an organization made by fans, for fans — and we’re asking you to do two things:
- Donate – our goal this drive is to raise US$70,000. As you know, if you donate US$10 or more, you renew your yearly membership with the OTW. We also have awesome premiums (including the return of our much-beloved convention tote!) that we’ll gladly send you as a thank-you gift for a larger donation.
- Tell us why you support the OTW in 10 words or fewer. Reblog, retweet, comment, send us your answer by carrier pigeon, or through email at devmem [at] transformativeworks [dot] org. We really want to hear from you! You might even see your words on our social media — please let us know if you’d prefer to be anonymous.
