Hello family and friends,

As you may know, I love birthdays. And in particular, I love my birthday. Even as I’ve passed the “fun” milestone birthdays into the “omg, I’m getting old” milestone territory, I still love my birthday, and there’s nothing better than celebrating it with my nearest and dearest.

This year I will be turning 27-years-old. And I have the very sad news to report that I will not be having a birthday party this year.

Please take a moment if you need to.

Now that you’ve had a moment, you may have noticed that lately I have been out-of-contact and very busy. Maybe I don’t call you on the phone as much or it’s been months and months since we’ve gone out to dinner. Or perhaps you’re just wondering why I haven’t been updating my Facebook or you haven’t seen me at my regular hang-outs. Well, that reason is three little words:

Geek Girl Con

Geek Girl Con is a nonprofit which promotes and celebrates geeky women. Some of you may know my love of Star Trek, She-Hulk, and search engine optimization, just to name a few of my geeky interests. Geek Girl Con is seeking to have a convention in Seattle sometime in 2011, and I am one of the people heading up efforts to make sure this convention happens.

Currently, I am the Marketing Director for Geek Girl Con and am running for President on the Board of Directors. I believe in Geek Girl Con as a cause, and I believe in the celebration and promotion of geeky women. Geek Girl Con is made up of 100% volunteers.

This year, instead of throwing in $20 for a plate of Indian food or $15 for a movie at my birthday celebration, I’d like you to donate to Geek Girl Con. I want to raise $500 in the coming weeks until December 13th my birthday. 100% of this money will go to Geek Girl Con, and our current fundraising efforts are going directly into putting a deposit down on our space to have the convention.

Please donate to Geek Girl Con for my birthday:


Starting December 1st, you can follow the progress of my 13 days of fundraising on right here on my blog, which will every day include a new embarrassing, wacky, or otherwise interesting insight in to who I’ve become in the last 27 years of my life.

Thank you for your support.

Love,

Erica McGillivray

P.S. Please help me out and send this to a friend or family member as I know some of you are the best forwarders on the planet! :)

About Erica

Erica McGillivray spends too much contemplating the socioeconomic importance of the bananaphone. Ring, ring, ring. Bananaphone. She loves bunnies, soap opera plots in comic books, and dreams of flying in the stars. Erica works for Moz in inbound marketing, which means sometimes, she'll talk about that.
