These are the final days of our Fun(d)raiser to Save Autostraddle from Not Being a Thing! Last weekend we asked you to please pretty please give what you could and maybe also buy some stickers because we really needed your help. And then you guys blew our minds with generosity and love and helpful emails and WE LOVE YOU. We’ve always loved you, but now we can stop worrying about how to pay for the dedicated server long enough to really revel in this love for a little while.
So far we’ve raised $16, 253 through generous donations and sticker sales!!
(UPDATE: Saturday night 11:59 PM PST – $18, 156!)
And even more of you have signed up to be AS subscribers which is excellent, it’s the closest thing to a “reliable paycheck” we will probably ever know. So thank you, thank you, thank you.
Our goal is $20,000 by the end of this week and we are super goal-oriented (it says so on our unused resumés) so getting to that number would be EXCELLENT. Every dollar you send our way is going directly into fleshing out our brilliant ideas and making sure we have enough macaroni and cheese to get through the week. We are “stepping it up” and “adding new things.” We are SO EXCITED about what the future looks like! It looks hot, you guys, and it couldn’t have been a thing without you.
You have a couple of days left to donate to the biggest most insanely successful and exciting fun(d)raiser in Autostraddle history!! Buy stickers! Do you want a zine from Emily? She’ll send you one! Just let us know.
In celebration of this triumphant push, many team members have made kittens for you.
