Support me as I STRIKE down reproductive barriers in the National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon!!
Please click on that link and donate to my team so we can give all the money to RRFP so they can give all the money to poor people seeking abortion access and care in virginia. It’s really that simple. That’s what I love about working with RRFP.. the core of the work is just doing whatever we can to make sure that people who are facing the many many MANY barriers to abortion care across the state of Virginia can overcome enough of them to get the abortion care that they need.
RRFP is doing lots of other stuff in addition to this, with no paid staff and a completely grass roots structure. I’m personally really excited to begin offering some sort of abortion doula services, specifically for women and people of color who are coming to Richmond for clinic visits, in the upcoming months.
RRFP also hosts workshops, speak outs, participates in rallies and marches, etc etc. But the core of what’s going on is that we need to get $$$ to people who can’t afford the life-saving procedure that they need. And for that, we need donations.
So click that link please please, and give whatever amount you can. If 10 people give $3, that could pay for a bus ticket for someone in rural VA to get to Richmond for a clinic visit. If 10 people give $10, that can pay for a babysitter for the two days they have to be out of town, thanks to the mandatory 24 hour wait time between the initial clinic visit and the actual abortion procedure.
Thanks for reading and please reblog! <3
Hi friends!!! So, RRFP is about $26,000 away from our goal this year….. i don’t really know how to convey how scary or heartbreaking that is. Today is the last day of the fundraiser y’all.
It’s like, for the past couple years the bowl-a-thon has generated a really amazing amount of money, and RRFP has been able to fund a lot of people needing abortion care in VA. And if we don’t make that $26,000 this time, for real people will be turned away. This is the furthest RRFP has been from reaching our goal in the time that i’ve been involved with the organization.
This year a woman who RRFP helped to literally save her own life last year is fundraising, and I am just thinking about how if last year we were this far below our goal, she wouldn’t have been funded.
And this year there’s so many new things RRFP is trying to do, outside of just straight up funding people, and how are we gonna do any of that now if we can’t provide the core of RRFP’s services?
Anywayssss, today is the last day to donate to RRFP through the bowl-a-thon. I know this is a sad and not very eloquent post, but please reblog and donate if you can! I’m totally holding our for a miracle.
