Dig deep, you guys!

This is such a wonderful idea. And I have my own to add to it:

Give $1/$5/$10 for every instance of rape, sexual abuse, child abuse, domestic violence or incest you have written in your own fanfic. I know that, for some of you, it will really add up, but these are worthy causes, and deserve whatever you can afford to give. Fandom is huge. We can make a huge difference. I am so proud to be a member of fandom culture right now!

Why? (I hope you're not suggesting that fiction writers need to atone or buy indulgences for sharing their own fantasies.)

I couldn't decide how much to give, so I decided to do it like that. I don't think fanfic hurts anyone, but it's nice to think that the fic I've written can, in this way, do the exact opposite and help that much more.

Thanks for clarifying! I see how it can be a fun guideline when you put it like that. :)
