It is with great pleasure that I inform you that AVfM has just exceeded the fundraising goal of $5,000.00!
That being said, the fundraiser will continue for the entire two weeks as scheduled. There are a couple of good reasons for this. One, if I were able to raise $5,000,000.00 it would not be enough to fuck their shit up the way I would like to. Two, and very importantly, nearly 40% of the current total ($2,000.00) was donated by one individual who has been a regular, anonymous supporter.
Without this person, we are still at 60% of goal.
I am not going to change the fundraising goal, but I hope we are able to raise another $2,000.00 before this is over so that we can show that the weight of this does not rest on the unusual generosity of one person.
And of course, the additional $2,000.00 will be used to take the fight directly to our enemies.
That being said, let me take this opportunity to express a hearty thank you to each and every donor to this website. Aside from the one very large gift, we have had donations ranging from $1.00 (yes, we got a paypal for a buck) to $500.00 and almost everything in between. That includes $100.00 from a man who gave it from his unemployment check. That is the second time that has happened here. The first time was during the AVfM Radio drive.
Every last one of these donations is greatly appreciated, and you can trust it will help in this fight.
Thanks to all of you for putting some real timbre in this Voice.
