The town of Riverside, Iowa is host to the annual TrekFest celebration. As the “future birthplace” of Captain James Tiberius Kirk, they have a legitimate claim to fame–who doesn’t love Kirk?
This year, though, Riverside is in a bit of trouble. TrekFest XXVII fast approaches (scheduled for June 24-25), and they need funding, fast. The event’s site has set up a donation page with the following promise:
Make a $25.00 donation to save trekfest and receive a thank you gift of a certificate of authenticity with a vial of kirk dirt.
Your donation can help you rest at night knowing you helped save a geek institution, and the Kirk Dirt is kind of just a bonus.
