This ad >> http://bit.ly/ProJoAd << ran the Day Before Thanksgiving in the Providence Journal. Did you see it? On November 22, it was taking up most of page A7! :)

Mel DuPont fronted the money for the ad, and now we're trying to cover the final ad cost, which was $2,895.91.

We've got just about $700 left to raise before this Plumfund closes on December 12! Can you donate $100? Can you donate less? Can you donate more? Can you share this link with trusted pro-choice friends who can chip in?

Latest Update

Thank you, Justine and Anonymous, for making the final donations to this ad project! Together we came within $600 of our fundraising goal. And as for social outcomes, I'm happy to report that I've had dozens of encouraging encounters with pro-choice humans, talking about the ad and what actions they plan to take in the coming weeks and months. I'm happy our ad is one drop in the very large bucket towards reproductive justice, and I'm heartened when I see all YOUR hearts rowing together towards common goals. If you're reading this, much love to you, and thank you for your hard work. We'll get there, together. We will.

Thank you, Caroline and Kathleen, for donating to this ad campaign! Each and every donor is a superstar, and I'm glad to be working with you to get the Reproductive Health Care Act passed in Rhode Island in 2018. Can we do it? If we work together, I think we can. And I'm excited to find out if we're right. + Mel DuPont, RHCAri.com

Thanks for your donations, Helen and Abby! By my count, we have just $720.93 left to fully fund the 2,895.91 ProJo ad that ran. Can we make it by December 12, when this Plumfund closes? Let's find out! Please Share this fundraiser with ONE friend you think might donate. And thanks!

THE AD RAN TODAY! Page A7. I grabbed six copies. What did you all think? I thought the Providence Journal did an awesome job with the print quality AND the layout. I'm really hoping the ad reaches thousands of pro-choice RIers who don't use Facebook, and, I'm hoping it sparks uncomfortable but deep, caring conversations that ultimately shift the vast majority of our State legislators into voting pro-choice. We've got a Reproductive Health Care Act to pass, and no time to waste! If you haven't already, call or email your legislator and tell them WHY you're pro-choice! And please sign up at RHCAri.com (click Get Involved) so we can keep you in the loop on upcoming actions you can join in on. This newspaper ad is not nearly the end! We've come within $819.49 of the 2895.91, and there's still time to donate. On behalf of the Committee, I thank you for your moral and financial support, and for your labor so far...and yet to come. Let's do this.

Thank you, Lisa and Amy, for your donations! Apparently it's possible to raise funds at other people's fundraisers... I am learning so much. Argh, asking for money is so awkward! But ads must be paid for. So on we go! Looking forward to next Wednesday. Hm, I wonder if I should warn my webhost...

Y'all warm my heart. Thank you, Gail, Laura, and two anonymous donors -- we're up to $1771.52, just 1124.39 short of the 2895.91 it took to buy the ad. This Plumfund is still open for donations, and will be through the publication of the ad on 11/22, plus a few days after that, I think... Be sure to grab a copy when the ProJo prints! Is the ad suitable for framing? Well, I guess that depends on how you like to decorate :) I know I'll be keeping my copy!

I just paid the Providence Journal for the ad. It's good to go! Look for the ad in the Main section of the paper on Wednesday 11/22/2017. You won't be able to miss it... it's huge :D We came up $1,288.43 short in fundraising, but you may still donate at Plumfund! I've learned a lot about how Plumfund works, so if you're planning to fundraise and you want to ask me questions, email me to set up a time! (But please donate a little first.) Thanks again to all our donors, and thanks too to all our moral supporters. You're all directing your effort towards projects that decrease human suffering. You're putting boots on the ground, signs in the air, hearts in the chats, minds at the table, and candidates in the seats. It's hard work, and you're doing it. Thank you <3

Wowzers! Thanks to Nick, Caroline, and Sarah, we've now collected $1,607.48 of 2900! I spoke with awesome adwoman Linda at the ProJo today; the ad looks good, it will print the day before Thanksgiving as planned, and I should be able to pay online tomorrow. If you haven't donated yet, there's still time, and I'll still be grateful. I believe in this little ad that could. If we mobilize just one percent of the ProJo's print readership... We MIGHT have enough people to get the Reproductive Health Care Act passed in 2018. Let's make it happen! Chip in and see how we can change the law when we all row together!

Thanks to twelve generous donors, we're up to $559.48! Even though we fell short of the $2900 needed to pay for the ad, I know we're going to find a way to get it paid for and published as planned. This campaign will remain open for 30 days, so if you get a chance to donate, please do! Every action helps. Much love, Mel DuPont, Founder, Committee to Pass RHCA in RI RHCAri.com
