It is for that reason that I have donated to defeat Proposition 8. California's legislature, representing the people, and its courts, representing the rule of law, have moved to recognize the right of gay and lesbian couples to marry. We cannot allow an established civil right in the Golden State to be overturned at the ballot box. Every dollar you can give in these last in these last few days helps fight the dollars donated to enshrine discrimination into California's constitution. As we've seen this election cycle, small dollar donations can make a huge difference.
8 Against 8 launches to fight Prop 8
Over the weekend, Grace Chu and Grace Rosen of www.gracethespot.com asked me to help get the word out and fundraise on behalf of Equality California’s No on 8 campaign. Our eight-day collaborative online fundraising effort is called 8 Against 8. Lesbian bloggers participating with me are: Dorothy Snarker of dorothysurrenders.blogspot.com, Lori Hahn of www.hahnathome.com, Kelly Leszczynski of www.thelesbianlifestyle.com, Sinclair of www.sugarbutch.net, Riese of marielynbernard.blogspot.com , and Renee Gannon of www.lesbiatopia.com.
All companies and businesses that donate $100 or more will receive a free one week ad on thelesbianlifestyle.com and gracethespot.com, with 100% of the proceeds donated through the 8 Against 8 donation page at 8against8.com go directly to Equality California’s No on 8 Campaign.
And the ad deal goes for Pam's House Blend as well -- if a business or blog donates $100 or more, you can receive a week of free ad space on the Blend. If you donate $500 or more, you will get a month of free space on my blog -- and a Pam's House Blend T-shirt and mug.
Also, here is the 8 Against 8 on Facebook page. Sign up!
And if you surf over to my friend Mike Signorile's blog, he is holding a fundraiser for No On 8 -- auctioning off a bear loaded with his 2008 Dem convention swag! So if you're interested, put a bid in and donate more!
