Update! Driving Equality Phelps-a-thon was a huge success

13 Dec

Remember last week’s post about Fred batshitcrazy Phelps’ people’s planned protest in Boston? (yikes, look at the alliteration!)

Well, we have news! Chris Mason from DrivingEquality writes:

The Phelps-A-Thon was a huge success! We raised over $4,500 for Driving Equality! We collected $755 of that during the 45 minutes we were on the street counter-protesting the Phelps clan. Seventy-five people showed up to support the Phelps-A-Thon and to say no to hate. Everyone cheered as we updated the sign every five minutes, tallying the amount raised by the Phelps-A-Thon. People walking by handed us $5, $10, $20 bills. Someone wrote a check for $250 on the spot. It was incredible!

Congrats to Chris and Driving Equality, and a huge thank you! to everyone who has donated so far.

This is just one way to do something constructive and positive to counter the negative stuff happening every where around us.

Remember that it’s not over, though, and you can still donate–check this out:

It is not too late to make a contribution to the Phelps-A-Thon. I am sending Fred “God Hates Fags” Phelps a card, telling him how much he raised for LGBT equality. Make a donation today and your amount will be included on that card.

Sweet!!!!

Go on, donate. You know you wanna! :grin:
