On Updates

As you may have noticed, we haven't made any significant updates to the charities list -- not for lack of trying! LJ isn't currently letting us edit our sticky post, probably having something to do with the DDOS attacks.

As soon as we can edit, we will.

In the meantime, I want to SCREAM out my encouragement to you all. In the last three days, we have raised thousands of dollars for very good causes. (I don't trust my math skills to tell you how many thousands exactly, but suffice it to say that I believe we passed the $3000 mark today.)

So, other than a HUGE amount of pride and gratitude for all the pimping and the generosity, I have one thing to say:


We did this much in three days. There are eleven days left. We can do SO MUCH. Keep spreading the word, keep digging deep.

Okay, I am gonna try to update the stickypost again. If you're looking for a charity in or near your country, check out the info-gathering post until the stickypost gets squared away.

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!

If you're here, you probably donated, so the first thing we have to say is: thank you. Sincerely thank you. You've made a difference - every donation does.

But what Fandom Gives is trying to do is harness the immense and inspiring energy of fandom to change the world for the better, so let's see how much of a difference we all make together. Tell us who you donated to, and how much, and at the end of the two weeks, we will be able to see just how big a force for good fandom can be when it wants to be.

Tell us how much you gave, and to whom!

Do you have any feedback about Fandom Gives? Do you have any suggestions for relevant charities we could include in this drive (international suggestions are particularly welcome!)?

This is the place to leave your comment. We would love to hear from you.
