For her 55th birthday, folklorist Lisa Higgins requests donations to support a cause dear to her—supporting student folklorists in their professional development. Higgins hopes to raise $550 in five days, enough to fund one student travel award for the 2018 American Folklore Society meeting in Buffalo, NY. 

The Public Programs Section of the American Folklore Society annually provides up to three awards of up to $500 each, named for legendary folklorist and activist Archie Green of San Francisco. With funding, these students can defray costs for traveling to the annual meeting to participate in panels, professional development, and networking with leaders in the field. With the award, the Section is interested in supporting graduate and undergraduate students with hopes to work in the public sector, or who have chosen an area of public folklore as a primary topic of research.

To give to Lisa, the Public Programs Section, and a student folklorist, go to the online store at
