I have been overwhelmed by the response to my Open Letter to Feministing and the FWD/Forward group blog. When the numbers of comments started climbing up on my open letter post, I made a personal pledge to myself; if it reached 200, I would donate $100 to a charity chosen by the readers.
Well, I have the cheque.
Now, I need the charity. I’d like to hear suggestions in the comments; for obvious reasons, I would prefer disability-related charities, ideally charities which actually do things for people with disabilities, like providing support services (as opposed to research, which is also very valuable and important). I’m fine with regional/local charities as well as larger ones. If it seems like a consensus can’t be reached in the comments, I’ll set up a poll and readers can vote.
