Send Your Stuffed Animal On An NYC Vacation

meganphntmgrl:

Hi!

My name is Megan. I live and work in New York City, and would like to be able to continue doing so. However, I’m currently dealing with a really toxic/abusive living situation and am trying to scrape up enough money to move to a different place. There are a lot of other places I can check out that are very close to where I currently live (which would be ideal for work) that are still on my monthly budget, but most of them require monthly payments (rather than the weekly payments I’m currently making), which means that I need to have two months’ rent on-hand to even move in the first place. I’m a nanny/babysitter for a living, so this is a really daunting prospect on my own. At the same time, though, it’s getting really difficult for me to tough it out where I’m currently living, so the sooner I can raise the money I need to move out, the better. (I have approximately a little less than a bedroom’s worth of stuff, so I’m not worried about covering my own actual moving expenses- I can probably use a man-with-a-van service to move all my boxed stuff wherever I go.)

With that in mind, I’m offering a rather unusual service as a means of raising some extra money. Last week, I read about a Japanese travel agency that does vacations for stuffed animals to places where the toys’ owners would like to visit themselves but can’t. I’m offering something similar, but for New York City.

Here’s how it works:

  • Base price per stuffed animal is $25 plus the return shipping (depends on the size of the stuffed animal).
  • If there are any particular sites you want your stuffed animal to visit that require an additional entry fee, that will be added to the cost (for example, it costs $18 to go up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building, so while I’m willing to take your toy up there, you’ll have to cover that as an additional cost).
  • Places with free entry are, of course, no extra charge.
  • I can send you photos of your stuffed animal enjoying the sights by phone or email them to you (or both). I am also considering setting up a Tumblr page to publicly share the photos if there’s enough demand.
  • For an extra fee I can have the photos made into a little 4 X 6 photo book and mailed back to you with your stuffed animal.
  • Because I’m working (and because of the cost involved), I can’t really do things like Broadway shows, sports events, etc. Even if it were paid for on your end, I’m trying to save up money to move, so taking a night off of work to bring someone’s stuffed animal to an event isn’t really in my interests right now.
  • Right now I estimate that the average vacation for your stuffed animal will last about a week.
  • I don’t charge extra per number of photos, free sites, etc.
  • Right now, this is only for stuffed animals/plush dolls- no plastic dolls, action figures, etc. This is to make sure they can handle being mailed back and forth without breaking.

If you’re interested, please email me at meganphntmgrl@gmail.com so we can talk things over, discuss prices, and exchange information!

We did it!

A friend of mine- the one who actually had this idea in the first place- will be presenting a copy of this letter at the US premiere of Thor: the Dark World on November 4. Thanks to everyone who helped out!

moreagaara asked: No, Congress will not be able to handle Loki. And that is the point.

If they can’t handle him, we’ll have to send in someone else who can. That kind of defeats the purpose from where I’m standing.

Everyone is reminded that Agent Coulson’s new team member’s all have Clearance Level above most of you, especially you Mr. Stark. You’re Computer privileges have already been revoked. Stop trying to get them to look into Agent Coulson’s Personal file. Nor will hacking into the system help you find out if Agent K is Agent Coulson’s father. 
Therefore, failure to comply will result in Agent Coulson getting out his Taser and a long stay in medical from Mr. Stark.
Finally, Agents Barton and Romanoff hereby have my permission to take any actionthey deem necessary against whom ever it was that moved bugged or scratched Lola after their former Handler gave orders not too.

Stop using your cell phone cameras to vlog about how your day on the Helicarrier is going.  You won’t be getting a spin-off show of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and you certainly won’t BE an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. much longer if you don’t get back to work.

Transparency

lokisarmygivesback:

With less than a month to go, I think it’s probably in the fundraiser’s best interests to explain what’s going on and why we need what we need.

This project sort of evolved over time from a simple donation to something much more involved, and right now our ultimate goal is to have some cosplayers acting as and completely representing themselves as being Marvel superheroes (hence the need for good costumes) visit the hospital and have a meet and greet with the kids while helping to distribute the toys and/or art supplies we’ve raised money to buy. In short, we need donations and we need cosplayers.

I would like to add once again that there is nothing barring cosplayers of color from participating if their costume passes muster. “Accuracy” in this case means “acting as and really coming off as the character”, not “looking like a bunch of white actors”.

nimbusllewelyn asked: Director Fury, Doctor Pym is trying to create sentient robotic life, a 'son' called 'Ultron'. Mister Stark is claiming that 'it'll go all Skynet on our asses', and I am - for once - predisposed to agree with him. Can you please order him to stop? The personality program he is basing the brain patterns of 'Ultron' on is currently repeating the word 'Exterminate' and our contacts at UNIT say that that is a bad sign, no matter how often Doctor Pym insists that its just a bug.
