Can't Go? Women's March DC I Will!

I'm an artist, not an activist. But I'm going to Washington with 200,000+ women to tell the new president that we will not be dismissed nor will be stand idly by to indifference to the struggling. The privileged that he surrounds himself only serve the gods of wealth and power so it is unlikely that without more, that he will represent us the people. We need to let him know that we will be vigilant and will be watching him these next 4 years.

I'm asking for your support, even a small contribution will help a lot. I'm going no matter what you do, but I would like to know that you are with me in this and that you care. I know some women disagree, but we are marching for them too.

I  will be doing this trip very economically. If you could help with airfare ($300), expenses ($250), and boots ($80), I will represent you, and bring back a gift. So far 150,000 women plus are marching, and 30 marches in other cities across the U.S.A. are planned. Lets make this powerful. Let's stand together and fight for women and family rights. Join me, be a part of this march, and I will take your powerful woman spirit to Washington with me.

Thank you everyone who helped fund this trip. It's been a heartening experience reaching out to you all, hearing from you, and having such a great response. I feel very honored to represent you all. I will also be making a donation to the Women's March on Washington fund. I will keep posted on how the trip goes on FB. Again, thank you. We shall overcome!

I'm almost there. Again, I want to say thank you for everyone helping go to Washington. As I read the news I am appalled by Trump, Ryan, McConnell, and others. They care so little for America, and only care about lining their own pockets. We will all have to become activists and have to stand up to them for the next four years. It's a journey that begins now. Come join me and donate if you can! Again thank you for your support. Really I get misty eyed and my hearts opens. I am not doing this alone, but with you all.

Thank you to my twelve donors - men and women - who are helping me travel and march. I must admit I get a little misty eyed when I see a new supporter. I feel this connection and support, and I know together we are going to save Healthcare and Social Security from the robber barons who are now flooding Washington eager to give millionaires and billionaires tax breaks, not to mention corporations, who now mostly pay no taxes. Not to mention de-regulation and the harm to our environment and planet. Oh, sorry, I started ranting... Come join us! Half way there. Love you all. J

Thank you to all the people who are making this dream come true. It's getting real. I've been boot shopping and making sure my boots fit with big socks. So grateful, I'm half way home on earning the money to go! I am going no matter what, but could really use your support. I will stand for us all!
