And so ends this somewhat extended pledge drive.
I’d like to offer a big “thanks” to everyone who’s donated. When I checked in with you all a few days ago, donations were coming in slowly and it looked like they would fall far short of what I need to keep this blog going. But thanks to a wave of donations since then we’ve gotten very close. If a few more of you can donate over the next few days, we’ll get there!
For everyone who’s given – including several of you who went well beyond the call of duty — I literally don’t know how to express my appreciation. This blog started as a quixotic personal project, but it’s turned into what I like to think is a fairly significant voice against bigotry and misogyny. Sometimes I still can’t believe I’m actually having an effect on people’s lives. By reminding me, your contributions keep me going in more ways than just financially.
So thanks again to everyone else who donated in the pledge drive, as well to all the monthly donors, and everyone who donates between pledge drives, enabling me not only to continue the blog but to also to keep it free of annoying ads and popups.
Even if you can’t donate, if you’d like to let me know the blog is making a difference in your life, or if you have any suggestions, drop me a note at dfutrelle at gmail.com.
