48 for my 48th
now with 3 options...
While I remain committed to the two organizations I've given as options for the last couple of years, as we head into 2020, I wanted to also offer a chance for you to contribute directly to getting rid of Donald Trump. (Plus, 48 is divisible by 3.)
For some, the Trump presidency is making you want to double down on art, and so I offer you
Flying V Theatre
--our local indie theatre--whose 2020 plans include two mega games (after a successful 2019 Game of Thrones game), Professional Wrestling (yes, you read that right), a second season of our
genre fiction-based podcast series, and a world premiere original work of devised vignettes, along with plenty of continued development for the future and a few smaller projects.
is more where you want to be putting money these days. HIPS is on the cutting edge of the Harm Reduction movement in DC (and the nation) as it impacts sex workers, drug users and those with HIV/AIDS. In addition to serving people in street/underground economies, HIPS is also one of the leading service providers for DC's trans community. The constituencies HIPS serves are continue to be targets of this GOP Congress and the Trump White House.
And finally, for some, the Trump presidency just makes you want to make a one time donation to Trump's opponent next year.
It Starts Today
's Dump Trump
project is a donation to the eventual 2020 Democratic Nominee (you know, that person who may not be the one you are supporting in the primary who will actually take on Trump).
I serve as a board officer for the first two and created the last of these great organizations and will be tickled pink if you cared to make a donation in honor of my 48th.
All contributions to Flying V and HIPS are tax deductible and there are no processing fees.
Can you help me get to 48 donors for my 48th birthday?

Contributions to political candidates and committees are not deductible for federal income tax purposes.
Flying V Theatre is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
HIPS is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
All contributions to "Dump Trump in 2020 with $1/month to the Democratic Nominee!", "Chip in a buck to beat Trump in 2020", "the campaign of the 2020 Democratic Nominee", or to the “2020 Presumptive Democratic nominee for president” are earmarked contributions within the meaning of 11 C.F.R. §110.6(b) and will be forwarded to the Presumptive Democratic Nominee for President of the United States for the 2020 elections. We define the "presumptive Democratic nominee" as the candidate who, no later than 5:00 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time ("EDT") on the seventh day prior to the start of the 2020 Democratic National Convention ("Convention"), has received enough pledged delegates to win nomination on the first ballot at the Convention. The pledged delegates must be registered with and certified by the Secretary of the Democratic National Committee ("DNC").
It Starts Today will forward all earmarked contributions to the primary committee of such presumptive nominee as soon as the nominee is identified, but not later than the sixth day prior to the scheduled start of the Convention. If no presumptive nominee has been identified by 5:00 P.M. EDT on the seventh day prior to the start of the Convention, It Starts Today will forward the earmarked contributions to the general election committee of the Democratic Nominee for President in 2020 as determined by the Convention delegates.
In the extremely unlikely event that the eventual nominee were to decline to accept these funds, your donation will be redesignated as a donation to It Starts Today, which will use the money to fund an independent expenditure campaign in support of the Democratic Nominee.
Please note that should you make another contribution to this Fund or any contribution to an account of a presidential campaign committee established by the Nominee, that, when added to this contribution causes the aggregate amount of the contributions to exceed the limit set by 11 C.F.R. §110.1(b)(1) (currently $2,800 for the General election), an excessive contribution will have been made.
