Hello, my name is Miranda. I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I am here to discuss a matter with my fellow anime watchers/supporters and manga readers/supporters. I have a small problem with my future manga I am planning on releasing to the public in mid 2018. I'm embarassed to come to you all like this but you all were my last resort honestly, after starting a Twitter account and posting about it on there 24/7 and then occasionally posting about it on my Instagram. I am here with you today, to talk about getting some support to help fund my future manga. Now, I know what you're thinking... What, this lady thinks she can waltz right in here and think she can get her fundraiser off the ground in a snap? Well, no. I don't. I realize that it takes a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get anything started up and to completion. A person practically has to give up their soul to accomplish anything these days. I'm simply asking if you all could donate to my fundraiser or if you can't, share it to your fanbase so that others who are interested in causes like these can contribute. You see, my friends, art is dying out. We all need to keep art alive. No matter what. Whether it's funding a school art program or it's funding an individual's own dream to achieve something artistic in hopes of reaching out to people in some way. Let us combine forces to make art wanted again. I can promise you, right here and right now, that I will do my best in making this manga the very best you'll ever see if you please contribute or spread the word about my fundraiser. If you're not convinced I won't use the money for only this cause then you may refer to this link and it may make you feel more at ease: [link removed by mod]. Also, the fundraiser link is provided within that Tumblr post if you click the link. (It's not click bait or any viruses, I wouldn't do that to Crunchyroll users or anyone really... plus I'm not that smart to come up with a virus that could steal information or wipe a computer clean of data... I'm more of an artsy, literature kinda girl -laughs-) I must leave you with my best wishes and a farewell, I hope this gets a lot of attention... Thank you for reading all the way through this

It would be centered around a female's secret life being a kitten while working under her Master as an assistant to a CEO of a famous company. I'm basically trying to bring kitten play into the public eye while also making it seem harmless ^.^

While we do allow some kinds of advertising and self-promotion, a personal request for donations like this is really not appropriate for the forums. The perks you offer are little more than thank yous and there's no indication that funders would even receive a copy of the manga. It also lacks any kind of assurance that you have a specific fundraising goal or timeframe for raising the funds that is more likely to ensure successful completion of the project.

Therefore I've closed this thread.

ETA: I see that you did mention an amount at that link--it was kind of hidden in a mass of text (likewise the timeframe for completing the project, which doesn't seem to be mentioned there, though it is mentioned above.)

Finally, I don't even see what the mechanism is for you receiving funds.
