It Makes a Strong Case for Hillary Clinton

Just to be all sexist for a moment, men talk and women do. A few months ago, we lamented the fact that it was going to take years for Cali to raise the $3000 needed for her FET. It was April 1st. Today, May 22nd, Cali now has the money needed and the FET scheduled for July. It took us 52 days. I think we can safely say that women rock.

What happens now? We breathe for a second, Helen and Jen crack their typing knuckles since they entered a shitload of information into eBay, and we keep going. If you would like to participate in the planning and execution of the next fundraisers, sign up for the listserv. We will start brainstorming the next recipient(s) soon.

In the meantime, I am continuously putting up the ad space on my right sidebar for bidding even between recipients. The money made will simply sit in the fund and give us a leg-up for the next round.

An enormous thank you to everyone who joined in and helped. It is seriously amazing what women can do.

Kudos to the Kick-Ass Women!

This is such an inspiring story. It should be on Oprah or in Redbook or Readers Digest or something.

I work for a woman's organization whose tag line is "stronger together". I think that what you've all accomplished is amazing and something to be very, very proud of and very much proof that we're all stronger together.

While I wasn't able to contribute this time as we're scraping every nickel together for our own cycle, I do hope to be able to contribute at some point in the future.

Many, many good wishes to all of you!
