You Want to Support Autostraddle and Eat Cookies

Hey! Hi! You may remember that Riese’s birthday is coming up on the 23rd, and she’s asked for us to do just one thing: help her give money to Autostraddle’s writers!  Our writers work so so so hard you guys.

In fact, she’s so excited about this she’s enlisted her mom (of latkes with applesauce, matzoh caramel crunch and mysterious mailed items fame) to help her bake cookies in an internet bake sale for you adorable weirdos!

As you may or may not recall, a donation of $60 or more will get you eight delicious homemade cookies, which will taste like love and community and birthdays. There are vegan and gluten-free options aplenty. But the reason I’m reminding you of this now is that Riese’s mom is getting into town THURSDAY and so your last day to donate for cookies is TOMORROW! (Obvs you can still donate after tomorrow, but you won’t get any home-baked cookies for it.) (The option to get a handmade card from Riese remains, but you can’t eat cards, so.) A reminder of what could lie in your future:


All you have to do is donate, and then forward the email confirmation of your donation to Bren [at] autostraddle [dot] com requesting the type of cookies that you want and giving us your mailing address.

If we hit the $10,000 goal by September 23rd, we’ll be raffling off  one (1) 20% Off A-Camp Tuition For Life Coupon and two (2) $50 Gift Certificates for the Autostraddle Store!

What are you waiting for? Whatever it is, don’t let it keep you too long!

  1. Ooo thank you for the reminder! Even though I can’t get the cookies due to geographical reasons, I am excited for the baking to commence. And also excited to go donate in an attempt to transform the insane amount of appreciation I have for all these awesome writers into something they can benefit from!
