The Long Option (Insta, Facebook, Forums etc):
Our friend Kris is getting screwed over by the US healthcare system, and our corner of the internet is going to try to party our way to buy a solution. 24hrs+ of raging against the machine through the power of turtle art and friendship.
June 2nd, 12pm PST YourFaceisPretty’s Twitch channel. Wheelchair seats are supposed to last at least 2 years, but in the last two years, Kris has had to replace his SIX TIMES; and you wouldn’t believe the bureaucratic hell he’s put through every time that has to happen. Meanwhile, there are fun things like slowly falling over and pressure sores while he waits.
We’re pretty over him getting hurt by something as little as a good seat. Just 1.6k will get a cushion of proper quality.
If you’d like to give before the event: https://www.gofundme.com/f/buy-a-cushion-for-our-friend-kris
If you can’t give monetarily right now: Bigger viewcount -> Higher visibility stream. Just showing up to party really helps us.
If you’d like to help spread the word, draw a turtle on this image template, and share this with your friends.

With thanks to the artist, AbyssalEros, who made edits to the copy for twitter on the fly, and I preferred his wording.
