    @dreamingtree: Hm, email me at skepchick at skepchick.org with your real name and I can check. There’s nothing from the email address you use here on Skepchick.

    Hi, is it possible to get a breakdown of how the $3,000 will be spent? (is that too forward?)

  7. Avatar of Rebecca Watson

    @aineolach: If we reach our goal, $750 will immediately go to the JAF Conference in Kenya. The rest will be used for:

    Flying in speakers
    Hotel for speakers
    Party room rental
    Party supplies (decorations, food, drinks)
    Promotional materials (pamphlets, flyers, stickers, posters)
