As regular readers know the first initiative of 51 Percent has raised met its funding goal: to finance a press release making it clear that hundreds, possibly thousands, of men and women expect their President-elect to set a standard for zero-tolerance of misogynistic conduct. I will be writing more about misogyny and its relationship to the need to ensure that women constitute 51% in every sector of civic and political society. But given the generosity of readers of this blog with regard to the goal of funding the press release, I decided to round off the funding for a donation in the name of this blog and its readership to The White House Project, an organization committed to increasing women's presence in politics, the corporate world, and as media experts. Thank you to the readers of this blog who by supporting this blog enabled me to make a contribution at the "Visionary Level". In these troubled economic times, every person who has made any contribution to the causes I champion or to any worthy cause at all deserves the gratitude of all of us. Donating money is not possible for some people, and it is right now nerve-wracking for many. For those who can and do, all of us are grateful for the generosity and the courage.
Here is the receipt for the donation to The White House Project:
Now, about that job bank. During this election season I have met hundreds of people, some of whom read this blog regularly. If you have a service or product you would like to offer for a fellow reader to purchase or you are a reader seeking a particular skill or service, drop me a comment. I will list information about g-rated goods and services available or sought on a separate dedicated page that I will add to the the site for this purpose. Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for any transactions that follows from pooling this information; I do not warranty the goods or services; nor guarantee payment. I simply believe that one way to help each other through these difficult economic times is to build our own small marketplace. I do not know if this experiment will work, but why not try?
