For the next 48 hours, a generous Projector has made an offer to the Bilerico community that can't be ignored! Our reader will match up to $1000 total raised on Bilerico if at least 12 people donate in the next 48 hours.

Donate to No On 1/Maine Marriage Equality via Bilerico's ActBlue page and your donation will be doubled!

We currently stand at 13 contributors who've donated $565 to Maine. We need 25 donorsby noon on Thursday to get the matching funds. Our donor will match the total amount of contributions raised by our new donors up to $1000.


We've set a goal of raising $5000 from the Bilerico communities for the fight in Maine. That's paltry compared to the Maine Catholic Bishop's decree that all Catholic churches in Maine will hold a special second collection next Sunday for the anti-gay forces pushing the referendum.

Don't miss this chance to get double your money's worth of equal rights!

If a dozen people donated $83, we'd meet our goal. We could also do it with 20 people donating $50 or 40 Projectors giving $25 each. Even if you can only spare $10, we'll gladly take it and pass it on - as a $20 donation!

Keep in mind, this isn't a wealthy man willing to give spare change to Maine. This is someone just like you or I - struggling to make ends meet in today's economy. Our demographics info shows us that most Projectors aren't rich; they trend toward the lower income activist types.

Making a $1000 donation will put a dent in our donor's pocketbook too, but he's willing to do it for Projectors who will join him in helping Maine keep marriage equality.

Big thanks to our anonymous donor and to contributor Phil Reese for setting this up for us.

PS - Won't you help us raise $2000 for marriage equality in Maine? After all, when was the last time you could really double your money this easily?

I just donated another $50 to Protect Maine Equality!

Big thanks to you and the generous donor who offered to match donations up $1,000!

I wanted to make it easy for everyone so I made a donation first thing this morning while discussing the post with Bil. Now with Michael's, looks like we'll only need 10 more of Y'all to hit the goal of at least 12. I hope we get WAY more, though! I could not donate very much, but did what I could. If we all contribute what we're able, we'll be GOLDEN!

We've almost doubled in less than 3 hours. I really encourage you to continue this. 45 more hours to make a difference. This campaign is lighting up the bloggosphere right now--be proud to be one of those who gave!
