I've been informed by the "No on Prop 8" folks who have been tracking donations from this site, that, since yesterday, Towleroad readers have contributed $11,925 for a total of $89,568.11. That's stunning, folks.
Can we get it to $100,000?
The campaign is pleading urgently for donations in response to a surge in funding from the other side and what looks to be a huge push this coming weekend from the anti-gay zealots.
The national implications of defeating Proposition 8 could not be greater.

We cannot let these people deprive us of our rights. DONATE to ‘NO on Prop 8 now, if you can. There is a day and a half left to the deadline. Thanks.
