Contributions will help us spread the word
If you believe in the importance of expanding awareness of the repression of LGBTI people in 76+ countries with anti-gay laws, please support the work of Erasing 76 Crimes and its French-language companion, 76 Crimes en français.
The blogs’ publisher, editors and reporters all work on a volunteer basis. Only the reporters receive any money, and that is limited to reimbursement of expenses. Those include costs such as bus fare to reach locations where LGBTI defendants have been imprisoned for their sexual orientation, telecommunication costs, and sometimes the price of a soft drink for a government official who otherwise won’t agree to be interviewed.
So far, the editors of the blog have paid those expenses from our pockets, supplemented by very modest earnings from sales of the blog’s book “From Wrongs to Gay Rights.”
Now, for the first time, we are offering you the opportunity to contribute to this quest for justice for LGBTI people.
What will you receive in return for your donation?
- An accounting of how contributions are used.
- Realization that you are helping to make the world a better place.
In addition, for contributions of $150 or more, you will receive:
To make a USA tax-deductible contribution, go to the St. Paul’s Foundation website and specify “Erasing 76 Crimes Blog” in the drop-down menu on the lower half of the page under the heading “Donated For.”
To make a direct, non-tax-deductible contribution, go to YouCaring.com. Include your mailing address in the optional email if you want to receive a signed copy of “From Wrongs to Gay Rights” in return for a donation of $150 or more.
Your donations will support the continued work of the blog’s reporting team and, if possible, will allow us to expand our news coverage to additional repressive countries and perhaps even replace the inadequate, aging equipment that our best volunteer reporters are using.
