It’s the LAST day of our Feministing #TimesTen Kickstarter campaign!


We’re down to the final 15 hours, folks!

Over the past month, we’ve been honored, humbled, and frankly downright giddy that so many of you have donated to support the Feministing #Times Ten relaunch. We’ve never really asked our readers to give to a big fundraising effort like this before, and we were a little nervous about it. But we’ve been inspired to see how the Feministing community has stepped up. We can’t wait to show you what you’ve made possible.

In this final day of the campaign, it’s time for professional procrastinators like me to shine. Maybe you’ve been meaning to donate for weeks but never quite got around to it. If so, it is go time! Giving $1 is a way of showing how much you value independent feminist media (and will get you an invite to the campaign wrap-up party in NYC next month). If you can give $5, you’ll be entered to win a raffle for a seat at dinner with the founders of Feministing. Bump it up to $10, and you’ll get to be part of the team that tests out the hot new site redesign. If you can spare even more, there are still tons of other amazing perks–shot glasses, books, magazine subscriptions and more! Or donate on behalf of a friend and send them one of these cute illustrated holiday cards

Thanks to your generosity, we reached our initial funding goal in just 2 weeks–and we’ve added a stretch goal of $50,000. These additional funds will be invaluable for strengthening our redesign and giving us a base from which to build a funding infrastructure. Every single dollar really does help–giving us more of cushion as we work to make Feministing bigger, better, and more sustainable.

Over 960 of you have donated so far, and we could not love you more. Can you help us get to 1,000 backers by the end of the day?
