A fairly long shot, but does anyone else here have any experience in writing grants for LGBT+ community centers?
I'm on the board for one and it's very much a hands on process. As such, fundraising is in our hands. We've done good, but I would love to have a little bit of breathing room and would like to apply for a grant to help pay for things like, you know, rent and electricity. Anyone have any prior knowledge in that area?
Totally okay if not. Like I said, definitely a long shot.
Linus acknowledging his toxic behavior is a step in the right direction. I'm glad he's finally realizing what people (especially marginalized people) have been telling him, at great personal cost to themselves, for *years.*
While he's taking time to work on himself, I hope the Linux and open-source communities do likewise, and interrogate why we let his toxic behavior damage our community for so long.
Good morning Shop and Friends. It’s a Monday so I’ve chosen to start my day with a coffee in my mug. It’s overcast but not raining (yet) so I might be able to sneak in a walk to work without getting too wet. (I re-waterproofed my raincoat yesterday and it still smells too much like Scotchgard to wear, so I’m stuck with a non-waterproof trench coat)
Made the mistake of going out for groceries this morning. I got home safely despite tornado warnings, during rain with terrible visibility and flooded roads. I am staying home for the rest of the day; I think this has been the worst day yet for us in terms of Florence.
Still have power, thank goodness.
If you’d like to help people affected by Florence, consider donating to https://ncdiaperbank.org/ - they’ll get diapers, menstrual supplies, and incontinence supplies to people who need them.
@jennemmer Also amusing was just how quiet the timeline was on my older mastodon.shop account. Really shows why I moved over here. This is where everyone I followed is.
Hey folks. Sorry for the mishap, I think the Wandering Shop is not fully back online. (RT for visibility, if you please)
What happened: Cert expired, because a command wasn't running and I didn't catch it.
Sorry for the interruption. There's only one admin (me) and when I'm away from my computer, bad things can happen. 😕
Knitter, spinner, scientist, student, teacher - not necessarily in that order. (she/her or they/them).
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
