Only 1 day left!!! 1 day left to fundraise and 1 day until the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion (EMA) Fund’s 2nd annual Triathlon!
If you read my blog regularly (c’mon, you know you want to!) or follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you know I’m fundraising for reproductive justice. Under the team name “The Opinionators,” I’m raising money for EMA Fund’s Triathlon, a part of the National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon. With only 1 day left, please give, give, give!
And of course we have to celebrate!! I mean that’s how we feminists roll. Below are the Triathlon details:
Wednesday, April 11th, 2012
at Milky Way in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts
There will be Wii bowling, karaoke, raffles, prizes, and feminist repro justice mingling!!
Reproductive rights are human rights. Abortion is healthcare. No one has the right to tell you what to do with your own body. Everyone has the right to shape their own life and decide what’s right for them. And no one should ever be turned away from receiving medical care due to an inability to pay.
Filling the gap between healthcare and accessibility, the EMA Fund is an all-volunteer group of approximately 60 people working tirelessly to ensure people have access to abortion. They provide grants, financial counseling, emergency contraception, options counseling, childcare during abortion procedures, translation services, and transportation costs (bus, train tickets, cab fare) to clinics.
What will my donation fund?
- $4 – Round-trip T fare from Somerville to Brighton
- $20 – Lack of reliable transit: cab fare from Beverly to Lynn
- $40 – The need to travel out of state: bus fare to New York City
- $50 – Blood type: RhoGAM shot for women with RH negative blood
- $100 – Someone to talk to: EMA Fund’s average monthly phone bill
- $500 – Average cost of a first trimester abortion in Boston
Whatever you can give will seriously make a tremendous difference. Thank you!!!
