Thanks to everyone who participated in this week's opportunity to double your donation to No On 1/Maine Marriage Equality. A generous Projector offered to match all contributions in a 48 hour up to $1000. When you exceeded the goals, he matched the entire amount dollar for dollar.

$565 = start
$1323 = raised in 48 hours
$1323 = matched donation
$72 = donations since

Grand total raised by Bilerico this month: $3,283!!

A big heartfelt thank you to our anonymous donor who matched our community's giving. We have a huge debt of gratitude to all of you who donated to help protect marriage equality in Maine.

Keep in mind what the donor wrote after making his donation: We can't "declare victory now, or when we reach $5,000. The work has just begun."

If you missed this week's donation drive, you can still donate to protect marriage equality in Maine by giving through Bilerico Project's ActBlue donation page.

Proud to have been a part, and so grateful to everyone!

Just wanted to say that Bilerico really came through. The last 48 hours have shown that Bilerico readers put their money where their mouths are.

I gave and I am planning on going to Maine in October to help out. I hope to see you all there!
