YOU: So why should I give you even a Penny of my hard earned money Lizz?
Fair question. Because I think ladies should always have the freedom to be unapologetic sexual beings and part of that means guaranteeing we all have access to affordable reproductive healthcare.
YOU: Well I think that too. But you want my money, how you gonna make that happen?
Because I make shit happen.
I am a comedian, author, co-creator of The Daily Show and a feminist. I am also a fierce supporter of women's reproductive rights and in the past year, I have toured the country doing benefits to raise money for Planned Parenthood and NARAL. TO DATE I HAVE HELPED RAISE WELL OVER A MILLION DOLLARS. I am also one of the co founders of A is For, an organization that raises awareness about repro rights and raises money for The Center For Reproductive Rights.
In addition to the money, by using humor to speak truth to hypocrisy, my shows have energized young people to join the fight because comedy is a medium that has increasingly become a crucial way alot of people get their news these days,
We have seen 75% first time donors in many cities and between 65 and 75% women under 35. I have found humor is a very powerful weapon in this war on women and want to keep the momentum going.
YOU: OK, So if I am gonna pull cash out of my non-offshore account and give it to you, what exactly are you gonna do with it?
I want to produce a PSA reminding people where we are and where we will end up if we allow the anti-choice forces to keep furthering their agenda in November.
I need $7,500 dollars for production costs. I am not taking a dime.
The money will go towards paying a filmographer, an editor and a director plus any equiptment rental we may have to pay for.
If I raise more than my goal, it will be donated to A is For so we can keep our awareness going as well as our continuing support for the Center For Reproductive Rights.
By helping me create this campaign we will be reminding America just how much erosion we are seeing in the area of reproductiove rights and we all know that humor poking at the underbelly of dipshittery makes a HUGE impact.
I have made a living responding to the world through humor. My track record speaks for itself. It is an investment that will pay off.
YOU: So who will see this PSA after you make it?
You will see this PSA on cable news shows and your favorite websites and blogs.
And you will also see that through your donation we can make an impact and remind people that we can combat the diarrhea of Super Pac cash with an impactful message.
And any support is welcome. If you have to choose between buying diapers and donating here, for God sakes, the diapers can wait.
I kid. If you are cash strapped but support what I am doing, any amount of tweeting and facbooking and twit facing and tumbrgramming you can do would be so appreciated.
Thanks for your time and support!
Let's vag out together!
