Holy wow this is amazing.
So, on Esther Day last year, I pitched an idea to the Portland branch of Nerdfighters. At one of our local landmarks, Pioneer Courthouse Square, there’s an option to purchase a brick and have it engraved, and a bunch of people will see it and read it and it’s great.
Anyway, my idea last year was to purchase a brick for Esther and reveal it on Esther day this year, and give all the extra money raised to TSWGO.
Then the LeakyCon announcement came, and we decided, hey, John and Hank are going to be there, let’s do it then and show them!
So I mentioned the idea again yesterday, and after discussion, decided we should get input from Esther’s parents first. They e-mailed a fellow nerdfighter back today, and said they are in full support!!!
So now we’re gathering money and fundraising for the brick and then we’re gonna show a bunch of other nerdfighters during LeakyCon (and hopefully bring John and Hank to see too!) and it’s gonna be great
I’m so proud of this and glad that it’s a chance to give to TSWGO too and ahhh I’m really happy that people liked my idea and that her parents liked the idea and that this is happening yay
If anyone is going to LeakyCon this year, be on the lookout for this awesome project (:
