DragonMeet Marginalised Folk Fund

The DragonMeet Margnalised Folk Fund is raising funds to help marginalised people and/or those experiencing financial hardship to attend DragonMeet 2021.

Through sales of an itch.io games bundle, we aim to raise funds to subsidise transport, accommodation, and other miscellaneous expenses for beneficiaries. For every $250 USD (£183) raised, we will be able to help one person attend DragonMeet who otherwise would have missed out.

Thanks to the generosity of the DragonMeet organisers, we have secured a donation of 20 entry tickets for DragonMeet 2021. These will be provided to beneficiaries, in addition to monetary funds.
