This fall, we asked for your help and you told us overwhelmingly that Bitch was a worthy investment. In four weeks we received $74,000 in gifts from loyal readers like you.
And thanks to you, we are moving forward with renewed purpose and inspiration. As we look to the future, we see clearly that you, our supporters, are the key to sustaining Bitch.
That's why we're asking you to support our work by joining the B-Hive, our sustaining membership program. By contributing a gift of $5 or more monthly, you will help shape our future by allowing us to budget and plan more efficiently. It's easy to sign up - simply visit our secure online giving site.
This very kind person offered to host a benefit this Friday at El Rio in San Francisco (thank you!) back when we were in the middle of our fundraising crisis. We're thrilled and incredibly grateful that the event is going on as planned -- because it's ongoing support that's gonna keep Bitch thriving.
Sounds like it's gonna be a great event. Please attend if you can!
We're thrilled to announce that just three short days after our announcement that we need to raise $40,000 by October 15th in order to print the next issue of Bitch, you've rallied together and propelled us beyond our $40,000 fundraising goal. In fact, by the time we looked up from our computers, you'd already donated $46,000! On top of that, you've spread the word far and wide, and offered powerful and inspiring words of support.
This tremendous and swift outpouring has been honoring and humbling—particularly because you've offered it during the worst days the U.S. economy has seen this year. Thank you. We're deeply grateful.
Please help us keep the momentum going and continue donating and offering your feedback and ideas. We know many of you have ideas and concerns about Bitch's future and sustainability, and we're grateful for the critical feedback and ideas you've offered so far. We're listening. And we assure you we're hard at work on a sustainable vision, based on your feedback (and we're at work on a survey to help facilitate this process).
