Pledge-a-Picketer

The Saturday before Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and this year we are trying to use the volume of protesters to our advantage.  Here are details on the cause the the plan…

The KY A Fund provides financial assistance to poor people seeking abortion services. The recession has hit poor folks the hardest, and this year the A Fund has seen the number of clients needing help more than double! Now the A Fund is experiencing a financial crisis of it’s own, and we are doing what we can to help.

Pledge-a-Picketer is a great way for pro-choice folks to raise funds, and in this case the money couldn’t go to a better cause.  Here’s how it works: pledges are collected leading up to the day before Mother’s day (a day when we have seen more than 500 protesters show up at the clinic). On the morning of that day we will count the anti-choice demonstrators that come, and for each one of them who turns out to bully, shame and judge people, the A Fund makes $$$!

Folks can pledge anything they want to, be it a dime or a quarter per anti, or 20 bucks per hundred, or a flat donation of whatever they are able. If you would like to pledge, please email everysaturdaymorning@gmail.com.

Donations to the A Fund are tax deductible and can be made anytime!
