Halo cosplayer to “reward” someone with a friend request for funding his trip to 343 and PAX
Authored by Patrick Day-Childs
By running this, I’ll be getting the word out and probably end up securing him some funding. I’m in two minds about this, on one end he’s just trying, right? I mean he’s essentially begging online, but it’s better than lying to secure funding.
It all seems pretty normal he’s a super fan trying to get some money together, makes sense, but it feels as though he is taking it all a little serious:
“This is legit guys! This is not a scam! This is a means for this Spartan (me) to go to PAX and 343i. It shows me who visits the page, looks, and then does nothing. I’m just looking for $10 donations here. Nothing Stupendous. Anything helps!”
So he basically tries to guilt trip you into giving him $10, which is kind of annoying. But most interesting is that he offers anyone who donates $100 the chance to friend request him!
Now, as a charity cosplayer I find it interesting more than anything, that someone would try this. I’m curious to see what everyone thinks; will he get funding? Or is this crowd funding gone mad with cosplay elitism?
If you want to donate, you can via his page here.
I don’t any immediate issues with this, but really $100 should offer a reward that’s much more substantial, of course no one is forcing you to donate.
