06 JunThe Bad and the Good

Hey, folks! The Bad is that the next show won’t happen until Monday.

The Good is that MuchoMangoMayo 2016 is at 61% of the goal! Thank all of you for your help. There’s still a week to go to get to $1,500 and if you donate $75 or more, I’ll make a personalized Mango just for you!

31 MayDonations Drive Update

Hey, folks! Thank you guys for your love and money. I wanted to update you through the show itself, but I’m having a hell of a time finishing the next show. Here’s where we stand:

I’m extending the deadline by a week to make MuchoMangoMayo 2016 happen. I was afraid that if I made the window too big, people would say, “I’ll do it later,” and then forget. I’ve got some breathing room now, thanks to you, so I’m extending it.

To restate the goal, if I get $1,500 in donations between May 28th, 2015 and the end of June 13th, 2015, I will do MuchoMangoMayo next year. That’s 31 episodes of the show next May (which I definitely wasn’t planning to do otherwise).

We’re at $419.00 right now. That’s about 28% of the way there.

The books I was offering have all been spoken for. I’m looking around to see if I have any other goodies. If I find something, I’ll let you know in another update.

Thanks again for your help. I’ve gotten some wonderful, Mango-loving comments the past few days as well. It means a lot to me that you guys dig what I’m doing here and don’t want it to stop.

28 MayDonate Your Way to MuchoMangoMayo 2016!

Donate your way to MuchoMangoMayo 2016!

Hey, Gang, money hasn’t really been there for me lately. We seem to have had a bit of a falling out. While I’m already behind on my bills, I’m now looking at a couple of hundred bucks in car repairs and my identity was thieved today. The bank will cover what I lost in that last part, but not immediately.

Normally I could cover this through MuchoMangoMayo donations, but this year is the lowest amount of donations I’ve received of any May since the event started. Maybe the show sucks more, or maybe the incentive isn’t there since I’ve said I won’t do this again next year. I may have to swallow my words. (Won’t be the first time.)

Tell you what I’m going to do. If you love the show and you’ve never donated, show me your love and donate some dough through the donate button. I’ll take any amount you want to give, unless it’s under a dollar, because the fees may mean I’ll owe PayPal money.

If you’re one of the first four people to donate $30 or more, I’ll send you an autographed copy of a story collection or magazine that contains one of my stories. These are my contributor copies and they mean a lot to me, but apparently not that much when I need dough. There’s a photo of the books in the notes for this post at bewarethehairymango.com, so you can sniff around them.

Contributor Copies

If you donate $75 or more, I will make a personalized episode of Beware the Hairy Mango just for you. May be a couple of months down the line, but I will do it. You can give me some guidelines, which I’ll try to meet within reason and you can do whatever the hell you want with the resulting audio.

Now here’s the big prize and one I know I’ll be kicking myself for offering in the future. As I’ve said, Beware the Hairy Mango is coming to an end at the end of this year. But if you guys, as a group, donate fifteen hundred dollars or more between now and June 6th, 2015, I will give you 31 more episodes of this show in May of next year. That’s right. If you want one more MuchoMangoMayo in your future, and God I hope it’s only one more, and enough of you kick in, zombie Mango will rise from the grave in eleven months time. Subscribe to the Elitist shows for a month through the Get the Mango button, and I will count those four dollars toward the total and you’ll get the nearly three dozen episodes that are already there right off the bat. How can any of you possible say no? Actually, I’m fine if you say no but still donate.

Make MuchoMangoMayo 2016 happen people!
