We are pleased to announce that we have donated the money from our raffle at Across the Whedonverse to two different fundraisers that were near to our hearts.
On the day of the show, one of Jinx's best friends lost her 13 year-old daughter to suicide after being abused and harassed online. Half of the raffle money was donated to the Ashley Marie Dunn Memorial Fund to help the family pay for costs associated with this horrific loss.
Two weeks after the show, burlesque legend, Tiffany Carter, was in need of new hearing aids after a thief stole her purse, containing her hearing aids, from the back seat of her vehicle, while she was in it! Mae and Jinx both studied with Tiffany during the Hollywood Burlesque Festival. We both felt impelled to help her get new hearing aids and so we donated the remaining half of the money to the Hearing Aids For Tiffany Carter fundraiser.
