I got accepted to the USC's summer Japan study abroad program I applied to! I just turned in my agreement form today. The lady said the competition was fierce this year. Apparently a lot of students who got accepted last year are going this year because of the Tsunami and they had more applicants than ever before this year. I was 1 of 15 people selected to go. Everything has been paid for except tuition. However, the tuition is super high and my school does not offer financial aid unless you take 6 units in the summer. This class is only 4. I been selling a lot of my older or no longer wanted anime and cosplay items. I made a good amount at the swap meet I just went to at Anime Conji, but that is no where near enough to pay for the program, especially when I will have to pay for the following semester too.
So I decided I am going to try to fund raise some of the cost. I feel bad to just ask for a donation from people so I am going to have a raffle for a Custom Felt Friend Pair made by me. Here is a link to a gallery of characters my sister and I have made: [link] If you are the winner of the raffle I will make any two characters you want. They can be a magnet or charm. Depending on how many people enter, will determine the number of winners. Each entry into the raffle will be a $1.00. Each person is allowed a limit of 3 entries. However, if you want you can donate more money to my cause. I would greatly appreciate that. If you are interested in entering please gift a $1.00 or more to my paypal email@example.com I will announce the winners at the end of the each month until May.
Entry Fee for Raffle: $1.00 (Limited to 3 entries per person)
Paypal address: firstname.lastname@example.org
