Those interested in donating to offset the cost of the SF3 Translation Project’s presence at Retropalooza can do so through this link:
I decided to go with PayPal. It may be the least flashy, but it’s easy and I don’t anticipate this being a big operation.
The Shining Force III Translation Project has always been and always will be a volunteer effort that has refused donations from supporters, so it is a little awkward to now be fundraising for this event, but I think it makes sense in this situation. I have put countless hours and resources into this project personally and I’m not interested in profiting from this event. On the contrary, I will be committing a tidy sum to make it happen.
I want to explain what the funds are being raised for and where they will go. Many of the amounts aren’t known currently, but will be filled in as things come together. Many of these items could be reused for future events as well.
$130 Retropalooza booth (with electricity)
$100 Full Colour Banner (8′-0″x 3′-0″)
$??? Business Cards
$100 Game Stations and Tablecloths
$??? Table Rental
Using my own
48″ TV (for big screen video, buying new for this event, but I will use it afterwards)
40″ TV (for hardware setup, buying new for this event, but I will use it afterwards)
27″ Computer monitor (for emulation setup)
Computer (for emulation setup)
Laptop Computer (for big screen video)
Modded Saturn (for hardware setup)
I don’t know what the total will be and probably won’t until it is done, but any remaining funds will go to the SFC annual beg for site hosting.
Thank you in advance for your support!
