Announcing the #TimesTen Raffle: Win a dinner with the founders of Feministing!


If you’re a regular reader of the site, you probably know by now that we are raising money to fund a relaunch of Feministing, including a site redesign and sustainable infrastructure.

And to that end, some pretty great news: with 16 days left in our Kickstarter, and thanks to the efforts of over 650 backers, we’ve raised over $28,000 — that’s 93% of our goal!

That’s incredible progress, and we’re so grateful to each of our backers. Seriously, you’re the best. But we don’t only show our thanks with words. To show you how thankful we are for your support, we’ve decided to sweeten the pot a bit.

Any backer who gives $5 and up will be automatically entered to win a seat at dinner with the founders of Feministing, Jessica and Vanessa Valenti. This perk is valued at $1,000, but everyone who donates just $5 or more to the campaign is now eligible. If you’ve already donated $5 or more, you’ve already been entered! Please note that the dinner is taking place in New York City and you’d need to get there yourself. This invitation is non-transferable.

Even beyond the raffle, there are plenty of reasons to support our efforts. By donating just $1 to the Kickstarter today, you’ll get updates on special membership deals in the future, and we’ll send you an invite to our wrap-up party in NYC in January. Plus, there are still a million amazing perks left, including some great Feministing swag. Go check them out on the Kickstarter page. And if you’ve already backed us, please keep spreading the word about the campaign!
