Hey – hey you?? You like scarves? You like wool socks? You like abortion access?

Well then do I have a deal for you!

FSU and SURJ have a combined 4 teams participating in this year’s National Abortion Access Bowl-a-thon, and in order to raise funds to meet our goal, I am selling things I’ve knitted over the years and haven’t given away.

Wanna learn more about the Carolina Abortion Fund?  Here’s a snippet from their website:

The Carolina Abortion Fund has learned a lot this year, thanks to your continued support of our mission to improve access to abortion services for women and girls in North Carolina (and, of course, a rockin’ first annual Bowl-a-Thon!).

This year, we learned how to set up a compassionate and responsive intake system that has already helped more than 70 women pay their medical bills since the program started. We learned that our supporters are as passionate about bowling and access to abortion as we are. But the most important lesson we learned this year is that $300 a week does not go very far at an abortion fund.

You see, our budget only allows us to give out $300 a week to the women who call us. This weekly allowance barely lasts through our first hour of calls per week, let alone the first night. Why did we set this budget? We want to help as many women as we can, but we also want to build a sustainable fund that can serve women year-round.

This is why we need your help. It’s pretty simple: the more we raise, the more we can give out, and the fewer women we’re forced to turn away who need our help.

Contribute now–whether it is $10 or $50 or $500–to help women in North Carolina know that they have a place to turn to.

Your charitable contribution to the Carolina Abortion Fund is tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes. We are an all-volunteer organization, which means your contribution will go directly to help low-income women and girls with minimal overheard costs.
