Supporting a friend’s event
Your friend’s independent film that she’s been working on for a year is finally out. Your friend’s painting is in a huge exhibit. Your friend’s clothing line was finally picked up by a store. But, tickets to the film festival that your friend’s movie is in are $75. Tickets to the art exhibit where your friend’s painting is are $45. The simplest item of clothing from your friend’s clothing line is $65. Supporting friends can really add up. But when supporting a friend requires buying their product or purchasing tickets to their event, there is really no non-monetary way to get around that.
