8 bloggers raise $8,000 against prop 8

I heard from Grace Chu today, who points to this very interesting piece of news over at 8Asians... A couple of days ago, Grace and seven of her lesbian blogger friends launched the 8 Against 8 campaign, with the goal to raise $8,000 in eight days to help defeat Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that seeks to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California.

So what happened? Some crazy-ass donating, baby. Donations started rolling in by the thousands of dollars per day. Within 8 hours, they had raised $2,000. In 2 days, $4,000. And less than three full days into the campaign, the eight bloggers against Prop 8 reached their initial goal of $8,000.

Read all about it here, and on Grace's blog here. They've reached their goal, but they're not stopping there. They're going for the full eight days, raising money through Monday, October 27. Donations can be made at 8against8.com. All donations made through "8 Against 8" go directly to Equality California's No on Prop 8 campaign.
