Big Fat Blog Fund Drive

Big Fat Blog is having their annual funding drive.

If you are not familiar with this site, it is one of the best places to find out the latest news regarding discrimination against fat people both legally and culturally. Paul tracks news stories, research, books, and editorials regarding fat acceptance, fat prejudice and the latest on the consequences of the war on obesity. He does all of this in his spare time.

His fund drive helps defray the expenses of maintaining an adless website and domain name. Check out the website and let Paul (and all of us fat folk who benefit from his work) know that you support him. Even a dollar will help.

Paul says it best:

I realize that it's a lot to ask visitors to a (free!) website to contribute whatever they can, but that's exactly what I'm asking. In return, this encourages me to keep BFB going. Money isn't my primary goal with the site (obviously,) but it keeps ads off the site.

BTW, I too know that it is tough to ask for money and it is tough to give money, but supporting these grassroots efforts such as Big Fat Blog and The Ample Traveler are the stuff that movements are made of. The opposition is well funded. It is a multi-billion dollar industry with huge advertising budgets and lots at stake if fat people were to become acceptable. So please consider giving something to show support when these opportunities arise. It is a lonely fight at times and your support helps ease that burden in more ways than financially.
