Help Aelwyn Get to the NYC Makeup Show!

I desperately want to go to the Makeup Show in New York on Sunday, May 17th. It's my dream to be part of the Makeup and Fashion industry, and this could really help me with gaining contacts, finding new products, etc.

Grant will be driving me down (since the car is more comfortable for me, due to heated seats and the ability to recline and stretch my legs out). A night in a hotel is about $300-$350 (we'd only be staying Saturday night, and leaving Sunday evening).

The cost to get into the show for one day is $45 in advance, or $65 at the door. There are also seminars that I can pay to take on Sunday, and those run from $135-$250.

I'm hoping to at least go to the show and catch some of the free seminars. But it would be nice to take some of the paid seminars, as well.

As everyone knows, money is tight everywhere, but especially with my meds (the ones the government won't pay for), and my new dietary requirements (which, again, the government can't help with as I'm at max allowance), plus trying to pay for school and all my supplies.

So I'm asking everyone to please help sponsor my trip to New York.

WHAT YOU GET:

**$100** Anyone who donates $100 gets a free Makeover party for 10 friends, and that includes Faeries Oracle readings, as well as crystal readings (only available in the GTA/Golden Horseshoe area of Ontario). Otherwise, this entitles you to unlimited Faeries Oracle and crystal readings for 1 full year.

**$30** Anyone who donates $30 or more, gets a free makeup and fashion consultation, as well as a free makeup application good at any time (in the Golden Horseshoe/GTA area), as well as a free Faeries Oracle reading.

**$20** Anyone who donates $20 gets a Faeries Oracle and Crystal Reading via email (or in person, if you want to come visit).

**$10**And anyone who donates $10 gets a free Faeries Oracle reading via email (or in person, if you want to come visit).

I figured some shameless begging couldn't do any harm, since I REALLY want to make it to the show this year. :D
