Alright, here's the thing. I'm on the quidditch team at my college (Yes, quidditch like Harry Potter. No, we don't fly on brooms.) and we are broke. Who would have thought people don't want to fund a game based off a magical sport in a book/movie series? Silly though it is, it's a fun game. Problem: we need gear. Other problem: we're broke college students. So if you've got even a dollar to spare, it would be awesome. Find us here

Ignore what it says on the reward thing, if you donate $5 or more and comment on here that you did, you get a handmade red or black beanie! (not a GRM beanie, sorry)

You mean it's not like Quidditch on The Internship.

Psh, we could do that. Our captain actually has that ability to turn into Vince Vaughn at will, so it should be easy.

Part of me wants to Google how one is supposed to Cosplay Quidditch... fortunately, the part of me that doesn't want to know is winning...

It involves brooms, mouth guards, three hoops, and five balls- one of which is stuck in the pants of a guy wearing all gold. It's not exactly a beautiful or graceful sport...

Wait, so let me get this right: You asked your mother to contribute money to further an activity that involves you chasing guys with extra balls in their pants? Uh...

Don't be confused! Just donate money to the awesome cause of college students looking like idiots while playing a "sport."

Didn't your mother teach you anything about dating the jocks?

In reply to pres589:

Nope, we need certification, brooms, balls, gloves, hoops, and jerseys. And since we are college kids, we don't have any money to get those things ourselves.

Certification? What kind of certification? You mean like someone to make the determination that y'all are "certifiable?"

Haha, no there's a quidditch league and we need league certification and membership dues in order to play against other schools.

seriously?

pretty soon the NCAA will step in and tell you that you can't have part time jobs to support yourselves while you are on a college team...
