Steven H Silver, who accepted Joss Whedon’s Hugo for The Avengers last night, writes —
I raised $176 for the Fan Funds by letting people hold the Hugo I accepted as I wandered around the party floors. I started this fundraiser in 2009 in Montreal when Aliette de Bodard and Christopher Kastensmidt asked if they could hold it and I jokingly asked for $5. After they reached their wallets, I kept it up and raised over $200 that year to be divided between TAFF, DUFF and CUFF. Figured I’d continue this year.
