Fundraisers to Support Scarleteen
There will be two fundraisers at CatalystCon East to support Scarleteen.com, one of the pioneering sources of sex education for young people. We have donated two tickets to a future CatalystCon conference to be raffled off at the closing (although you do not need to be present to win). Tickets are $5 (or five for $20) and will be available at the registration desk all weekend.
Artpulp.net is also sponsoring a special "masquerade" art project in which participants can design a mask for a $5 donation. All the finished masks will be photographed and viewable in an exclusive gallery at artpulp.net/masks. (Each $5 mask donation will also include a "coupon" to purchase one raffle ticket at the discounted price of $1.)
CatalystCon is a conference created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality. We want to make it easier for attendees (and those who are unable to be there in person) to continue those conversations by using hashtag #ccon on Twitter and following @CatalystCon for updates throughout the weekend.
We have also created individual hashtags for each session, keynote, workshop and special event to help faciliate these conversations. Our social media team will once again be rounding up all of the best tweets and using Storify to curate them and tell the story of CatalystCon. But without all of you who live tweet the conference, there would be no stories to tell here! So keep the conversation going...
Find more info about the hashtags here. (They will also be available in your conference program.)
