Joe Declassified shared their latest update.
Hi everyone! The 2018 International GI Joe Convention is rapidly approaching and we are preparing for the show, which includes everything that comes along with it; namely the booths, panels, and the giveaway.
The money donated over the years has helped in various ways:
– Helped with booth fees for GI Joe con, Assembly Required, Coil Con, and RORC.
– Nine issues of The Declassified Report magazine.
– O-ring Sightline figure with file card.
– Allowed us to bring special guests Mark Pennington and Bill Merklein to Joe Con.
– Booth display cases.
– Shipping fees for delivery of museum pieces to Joe Con.
– Printing of the banners and flyers.
No money raised through donations go to Declassified staff or volunteers, but is put into the booths at the various conventions we attend.
Joe Declassified is a 100% crowd-sourced, 501(c) Non-Profit. Everything we do is either out of our own pocket or through your support. Coming to our booth at Joe Con is free, looking at the items we’ve got on display is free, and our annual give away is free to the community.
But like everything else in life, these things have a monetary cost. Joe Declassified has to pay for the booths at Joe Con, buy, rent, or transport cases, and pay to create the great items we give away at the booth.
This year we are approximately $2,000 short of where we need to be to put on the best display possible and to finance this years give away. So, as Joe Con approaches, we humbly ask for your support. If you are able to contribute, we would certainly appreciate your donation.
Joe Declassified is 100% not-for-profit and we are committed to 100% transparency with any and all donations. Every dollar we spend is 100% dedicated to the GI JOE community at large, meaning that our staff is made up 100% of unpaid volunteers.
GI JOE fans the world round often ask how they can contribute to Declassified and this is just one of the many ways. So if you’d like to help out, every dollar counts, literally. Every little bit helps us to deliver the presentations, media, and museum-quality displays you’ve come to expect from Joe Declassified.
We thank you for your consideration, support, and friendship, even if you cannot or do not donate.
Joe Declassified will always do our absolute best to bring you the best content possible and strive to give GI JOE and its history, back to you, the community.
