The New Years Eve Dragon works one night a year. Other than his big night on the town… he waits. He dreams of his Dec 31st accolades, the adoring crowds, screaming girls, the rumble of the drums… the ding of wooden spoons on tin pans.
Calm down now.
The Dragon has called quite few places home, some better protected than others. A couple years ago he got a new home – his own 10 × 10 storage unit at Village Mini Storage on Broad Street. It keeps him dry and ready. It is funded through the generosity of folks like you, who become Patrons Of The Dragon.
The Dragon is hoping to keep his comfy home.
That storage unit costs $495 a year. That is divided up 24 ways. It’s hard math for a dragon, but you can do it. That’s $495 / 24 = $20.63.The Dragon just before a New Years Eve run. He is a large fellow.Become A Dragon PatronThis is where you can help. Become one of the 2015 “Patrons”. Each Dragon Patron pays $20.63 for a half month of storage. The Dragon wants to maintain his dignity – he doesn’t want any Patron to pay for more than $20.63. Just sponsor a half month. Think of it as a Christmas gift to the Dragon.Thank you – folks who care about Oriental stepped up promptly. All the 2015 Dragon Patron slots have been filled. The Dragon thanks you!
There isn’t any Dragon corporation or any Dragon bank account. Dragon Patrons will simply send a $20.63 check to Village Mini Storage.
To become a Dragon Patron, just email in your contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org, and then we will email back confirmation and instructions on where to mail your Patron check. Your name, or your business name, can be listed as a Dragon Patron.
