Shameless Internet Begging (I Need Sponsors for KOTC Fight)
So, I fight in KOTC next month on the 12th and I'm fucking broke my savings have run out and I won't be getting a paycheck until after the fight.
I don't have training equipment, supplements, or really even enough money for groceries and gas to get to training.
I don't expect to get anything out of this, but I figured it`s worth a try.
I will be wearing custom made hot pink lycra shorts (to match my hair) to the ring with `Douchebag` written across the ass, but there is room for whatever else need to go on there or my walkout shirt. I`m not adverse to carrying a ridiculous banner or what have you.
Please, I`m begging.

Like most other amateur fighters I'm dirt poor as well so I feel you. If you're looking for sponsors however, they'd probably want to know your record etc before they would even consider. There's more fighters out there looking for sponsors than there are sponsors looking to give money away to fighters.

My hours got cut to ****, but next paycheck I may be able to kick you a hundred dollars American or something like that. No promises though.

Set up a paypal account
I'll send you $50 - do this before I max out my credit card as I do on a monthly basis.
I am sure other bullies will chip in.

Ok, I have set up a paypal account but I don't really understand how it works.

ask phrost but you need to give a link or something

paypal accounts work with the email address you used to set it up. users with paypal accounts can send money to other users with paypal accounts by specifying the email address of the user they want to send money to.

taking credit card transactions is a little different. You can go into your account and set up a donation button then paste the code it gives you for the donation button in this thread as long as Phrost is cool with it.
This link explains how to do it:
edit: You need a premier account to do it, but that's a free upgrade to your account.
edit edit: also understand paypal takes 2.9% + $.30(USD) as a cut of all credit card transactions.
