Something Fun and Worthwhile, Too!
livelongnmarry is a community raising money to fight the evil amendment on the ballot in California this fall that, if passed, will undo the state Supreme Court's decision in favor of marriage equality. They are doing this by having an auction. Community members auction off goods or services and the buyer donates the money directly to an organization working for marriage equality.

I would want to make a donation anyway, and it's fun to potentially get something in return! Most of the offerings are fanfic (that's what I offered) but there's also some jewelry, clothes, a variety of services from beta reading to tarot reading to help in choosing a therapist, and some care packages, too. There are many, many offers, but a tag index lets you find all that are in a particular fandom or of a particular type of offer.

Go check it out!

Oops! There's an "n" in there I missed. I fixed it - try clicking again.

I decided to just donate directly, but I appreciate your posting this. I wasn't aware of the organizations that were involved in pulling together the "No" vote for this.

I'm planning on donating my bid money (assuming I win something) to the National Center for Lesbian Rights, which has been and continues to be really involved in the marriage equality effort. Getting Out the Vote this fall is very important to this issue and a whole bunch of others as well, but the legal track is also important and part of how we've come this far and more in keeping with my personal interests (plus it's tax deductible, which the others are not). I figure it fits the specifications of "your preferred organization or coalition fighting for marriage equality." I was planning on sending them at least $50 so I've bid on a few things.

I also did a second offer - for a care package, which I think will be fun to put together.

Thanks for posting about this charity auction. Such an interesting assortment of things are up for bid. I've bought something, and I've put something up for bid as well.
