It all begins with the first piece. You’ve got the whole board to place it on. Every move is open. The choice is yours.

Success begins with that first move. What are you aiming for? Maybe today you want to win a game, or you just want to have some fun with your friends. Maybe you're exploring a brave new fandom, or revisiting old favourites you've loved for years. Maybe you're creating new content, signal boosting amazing recs, or organizing a challenge. Whatever it is, you need that first move to get started.

Here at the Organization for Transformative Works, our vision is to help build a stronger fan community for years to come through our projects: Archive of Our Own, Fanlore, Legal Advocacy, Open Doors, Fanhackers, and Transformative Works and Cultures.

This week, we’ve set a goal to raise US$100,000. This money helps the OTW pay for expenses that keep our projects going, in addition to funding improvements and helping us grow.

Now we need you to make the next move. Come play on our team—give us a boost by donating. You can help us build a better AO3. You can help us fight for the legal rights of fans. You can help us make fanworks and fan culture more accessible to everyone who wants to enjoy them.

We’ve set up our game board. Now we just need our pieces. Help lead us to success and donate today!
