Fundraiser for Abortion Funds


Even though we had months to prepare since the leaked Roe V Wade decision became public, the overturning of Roe v. Wade, a decision that each of justices who overturned it said was precedent under oath, is frightening in the fervor with which some states are controlling uteruses even more and the long-term applications on other privacy “precedents” clearly on the docket. In this moment, however, only safe abortions have been prevented, not the total number occurring. And humans with uteruses will die, impacting BIPOC AFAB humans the most.

So in response to this moment, Mister Domestic will be hosting a fundraiser to raise money for abortion fund and abort!on access organizations. I’d like to focus on those organizations that aren’t as commonly spoken about or focus on BIPOC or LGBTQ humans. Our goal is to have a total of 10 vetted organizations before the start of the fundraiser. This is going from idea to implementation rather swiftly, so I don’t have all the details right now, but will be adding things in real time to this post as soon as we have it.

I just wanted to get this started by letting everyone know that we will use my  @misterdomesticfundraiser account to set up a fundraiser of handmade goods, handmade related items, or something cool someone will bid on, where 100% of the proceeds will go to the organizations listed below.

Click the button below to be taken to the donation form for handmade, handmade adjacent, or really cool items. Even if you are unable to donate, please share with others who may be in a position to do so.

I will begin listing items as soon as I receive them and this will run the week of July 4th – 11th. Thank you kindly for any and all assistance.

    Matthew,

    I have followed you since I met you at Bigfoot Quilts in Auburn. You were giving a class and was watching from the back. Since then and with you emails, I have enjoyed you energy for the community.

    I had also worked as fabric manager in a local craft shop. The nice thing is that I made many samples for the customers to see possible products in some crazy fabric. I have a tote full of items, mostly bags and purses. I’d love for you to have these for this auction.

    Are you by any chance going to be in the Puyallup, Auburn or Tacoma area? If not, I’ll send to the Camas address below.

    Love you and all that you are!

    Kathie

    Hey, I am a wanna be creative. Not good enough (yet) to offer up an item. So, I made a donation today, as I am a tired grandma who is liable to forget in a week! Thank you for all you do!

    I can donate a Yarn It Out T-shirt, 3 balls of yarn for you to raffle off for this fundraiser. My YouTube channel loves to give back to charities I usually contribute to Veterans at the VA but this abortion issue is also a issue I will support. I will put out a video to let my followers know about your fundraiser as well. Thank you for all you do. I hope we get to meet one day. you have such a big heart.

    Just submitted my first item through the fundraiser form, but forgot to include my Instagram account info. How can I update that? It is the “NIGHT & DAY FLOWERS Double Drawstring Reversible Bag, Pouch… ” Should have included @mythroansdream as my Instagram info. (Apologies for my goof! Thank you in advance for helping me correct it.)
