Let’s Talk About Tech, Baby! - How to use email/texts to fundraise

Sad but true, the days of snail mail have come and gone. True, we all like to get notes slipped into our mailboxes from time to time: holiday cards, coupons, donation thank you notes, credit card bills. Okay, maybe not the last one.

Regardless, the hard truth is that communication has gone digital.

Do I have to bowl & other important questions about #BOWL18

Bowl-a-Thon 2018 is here! Join us in working to ensure that all people have access to safe abortion care in Ohio!

As safety nets crumble in our communities, we show up for reproductive justice, and we care for one another. At Women Have Options, we hear from folks all across Ohio who need an abortion but can’t afford it. We provide grants to cover what is often only a portion of the costs of their abortion care procedures. The grants we provide to our clients can be the difference between accessing a safe and legal abortion, or not having a choice at all.

We depend on the grassroots power and support of people like YOU so that we can continue to provide a compassionate and consistent funding to patients in and from Ohio. Join us in working towards a goal of raising $50,000 for abortion access in Ohio!

But bowling for abortion access? I don't get it... Well, let us explain.
