The SSA Week fundraising marathon for the Secular Student Alliance is almost over. Right now, Jen McCreight — the original originator of this whole Blogathon thing — is blogathoning like hotcakes over at BlagHag. Natalie Reed is at it as well, at Sincerely, Natalie Reed, and Sarah Moglia at RantaSarahRex is livestreaming.
And since my last update, we’ve raised another $11,000! We’ve now raised over $88,000. We’re actually reasonably close to our goal of raising $100,000! We can do this, people!
So, as promised, here are eleven more kitten photos. And because this fundraiser is a community effort of love and support, and because reaching our goal is going to take lots of people pulling together — to donate money, or to spread the word via Facebook and Twitter and so on — all eleven photos are of kittens snuggling!
For every $1,000 that the Secular Student Alliance Blogathon raises during SSA Week, I will post another kitten photo to my blog. If you want more — donate to the Secular Student Alliance now!
Here’s your starter pic. More below the jump.
Love! Support! Community! Support the SSA!
I’ve posted some quotes talking about why the Secular Student Alliance is so awesome, and why they deserve your support. If you have a story or a comment about why the Secular Student Alliance is so awesome — post it in the comments, and I’ll post it in the blog!
And remember: Jeff Hawkins and Janet Strauss have a $250,000 matching offer in place for the SSA, so any contribution you make will automatically be doubled. If you have $50,000 give that. If you have $50, give that. If you have $5, give that. If you don’t have any money, but you’re on Facebook or Twitter, help spread the word. (Twitter hashtag: #SSAWeek .) The goal is to raise $100,000 by the end of SSA Week. Do it for the kittens!
