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.
