I’m terribly sorry for going MIA for months. It was completely unintentional. I had to take a class for work and combined with the holidays, I literally had no time to even sleep. The first couple of weeks of the new year were just as busy but I’m slowly getting back into ATO. I’ve been updating the gallery with blu-ray captures from Sanctuary and as soon as I get those finished, I’ll post an update and start working on getting all the information up-to-date. I’m woefully behind on convention dates as well and I’ll try to tackle those first.
Sorry for the delay in posting this, life sort of got away from me. The new holiday fundraiser is live. You can find the store front here. You’ll notice there’s three shirts instead of the two I said there’d be. There were a couple ties in voting so an extra shirt made the cut. Since production for shirts is expensive, I’ve had to use a website. The shirts are available in various sizes, types and occasionally color. This is a tad different than what I usually do because, unfortunately, the website automatically charges a fee for production costs, but 100% of the proceeds will be going to Sanctuary for Kids. The website I chose will only make the shirts if the set minimum order has been reached. I have the minimum currently set as low as I can so all shirts should be printed. Head on over to my storefront and take a look at all the shirts available. If you have any questions I’m available on twitter as AT Online, on facebook and through email.
The second part of the fundraiser is an addition to something some of you may remember. During the fundraiser in Chicago we made a special Cards Against the Goa’uld game (photo). This year a few people mentioned expansion packs and you know how I run with ideas. This holiday season, you have the option of getting a Christmas expansion pack for Cards Against the Goa’uld. With a $10 minimum donation to Sanctuary for Kids, you’ll receive the PDF file to download and make your own cards. As with fundraisers in the past, just send a copy of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll email you your expansion pack.
Some of you may remember these shirts from last years fundraiser in Chicago. I’ve decided to bring back two shirts for purchase just in time for the holiday season. They’ll make great presents for you or your favorite fan. Just like before, the chosen shirts will only be available for a limited time. Since production for shirts is expensive, I’ve had to use a website. The shirts are available in various sizes, types and occasionally color. This is a tad different than what I usually do because, unfortunately, the website automatically charges a fee for production costs, but 100% of the proceeds will be going to Sanctuary for Kids. The website I chose will only make the shirts if the set minimum order has been reached. That is why I’m only going to reactive the two shirts with the most votes below. Voting will close on October 31st. If you have any questions I’m available on twitter as AT Online, on facebook and through email.
This fundraiser may or may not also contain something for those of you that have Cards Against the Goa’uld
If you follow the facebook page or twitter account then you know what’s happened. For those that don’t know, my host is closing on Monday and that means I need to find a new home. Since my host was wonderful, she bought this domain for me. Unfortunately that means I can’t take it with me so instead we’ll be using amandatappingonline.net so please change your bookmarks.
This is the first time I’ve ever had to backup and move a complete website so I can’t promise there won’t be any bumps in the road but I promise to get everything fixed asap. Keep an eye on that new link, facebook and twitter for updates. I’m leaving for Chicago soon so I’m not sure if I’ll get the entire site restored by the time I leave or not. Fingers crossed everyone.
You’ve been the greatest visitors a girl could ask for and I’m hoping you’ll weather the storm with me yet again while I try to find my feet. This was very unexpected but ATO will still be standing once all the dust has settled.
To those of you going to the Stargate convention in Chicago, I’m sad to announce that we will not be able to hold our planned fundraiser this year. For those of you that attended last year, you’re aware that we paid out of our own pockets for everything so 100% of the profits went to Sanctuary for Kids. We had planned on doing the same this year but The Westin is looking for almost 4 times as much as we paid last year. We tried to look into surrounding businesses as well as looking at ideas to raise the money to rent the room. What it comes down to is The Westin wants more to rent a room for our fundraiser then we usually raise (the exception being last year). So we regretfully announce that we’ve cancelled our plans for Chicago. On the bright side, we still retain permission from certain parties regarding what we had planned. We have a lot of ideas, so we’ll be seeing you guys again.
