GoFundMe bans abortion-related campaigns, is fine with supporting murderers

GoFundMe, the crowd-funding site that fundraised for Mike Brown’s murderer, has updated its guidelines to prohibit abortion-related campaigns, filed under GoFundMe’s headline “Termination of Life.”

This latest move seems to be in response to the widely-publicized efforts of an Illinois woman identified as “Bailey” to raise money for her abortion. Bailey had raised $1,000 of her $2,500 goal when her campaign was shut down by the site.

Thank you for funding Feministing #TimesTen!

We did it! Our Kickstarter campaign ended last night, with 1,037 of you contributing to Feministing #TimesTen for a funding total of $38,958. With this money we’ll be able to relaunch the site, build the groundwork to make Feministing sustainable, and start to pay our whole crew for their hard work.

Big thanks to our incredible Fundraising Advisory Board who helped us put this campaign together and provided so many of the amazing perks. And thanks to the whole Feministing crew for all your tireless work throughout this campaign.

And of course thank you so much to everyone who donated! We’re so grateful for all your support. In addition to contributing, thank you for tweeting, facebooking, and telling your friends ...

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 ...

Feministing Follow Friday: FAB edition

So, ICYMI: we’re fundraising. Just three days after the launch of our Kickstarter, we’ve raised $13,767 — nearly half of our goal. We’ve been really overwhelmed by your support: most of the money we’re raised has come in the form of $10 or $15 donations from loyal readers, which makes us feel like we must be doing something right. Our fundraising advisory board has also been essential for our success thus far. Some of our personal feminist heroes are guiding our efforts behind the scenes and offering some sweet perks for donors (the most recent: our own Academic Feminist, Gwendolyn Beetham, will review and make suggestions on a reader’s grad school ...
