Bitch saved!

Holy smokes!

We’re thrilled to announce that in just three short days, you’ve
rallied together and propelled us beyond our $40,000 fundraising goal.
In fact, by the time we looked up from our computers, you’d already
donated $46,000! (Read more.)

That’s amazing. I still plan to send them some money after my next paycheck (I always think about it when I read their appeals each issue), but it’s fantastic that so many people feel so strongly about this magazine that they didn’t wait — they donated, immediately.

As I write this post (which will be auto-posted sometime tomorrow), they’re at $55,000.

Save Bitch!

Oh shit! Bitch Magazine needs $40,000 by October 15 or else they won’t be able to print the next issue. Sounds like they are working to figure out an alternative publishing model that will be more sustainable, but in the meantime they still need to get the goods out there.

I don’t know how many of you read Bitch, but if you do, I hope you’ll think about donating something. I will be (as soon as I get my next paycheck and feel a little less “ack!” about my account balances). It’s a fantastic publication, and I’ve read about all sorts of things that I otherwise never would have read about. As I feel like I often hear other people say, I don’t always agree with everything I read in Bitch, but I’m glad that someone’s out there doing what they do.
