Bitches for Saving the Bitch

Thanks to Joanna for the heads up: Bitch Magazine is in danger of folding. Oh, HELLS No.

But yes, the folks who run it need massive help. Bitch is a not-for-profit, and their donations are often small ones from a slew of folks. So if you’re interested, head on over to make a donation, and watch their wiener (dog) grow. We, by which I mean the LLC, are donating, and I’m going to give away 10 subscriptions for 10 lucky commenters here in this thread. It doesn’t matter if you donate or not. I’ll pick 10 winners (Wieners!) – but please be prepared for a delay in the winner announcements, since I’ll be subject to intermittent internet access the next few days. Hey, more time for you to leave comments! Bring it on, and save the Bitch. And their wiener.

    Don’t screw the pooch! Save BITCH!

    Seriously, I’ve just visited the site and helped the Wiener grow—but I’d be thrilled to win a subscription, too! :)

    Donating today. If I don’t win a subscription here, I’m renewing mine. And buying the back issues of the ones I’ve missed since moving.

    Bitch rocks so hard.

    The thought of losing Bitch strikes fear into my feminist heart.  Please, ladies, donate if you can.  I will be.

    Oh, and I know my name won’t be pulled, but if it is, please pull another.  I’m already a loyal subscriber.  Give the subscription to someone who hasn’t experienced the greatness that is Bitch.

    It’s amazing how many times I have shelved this magazine and never looked at it (along with a host of others) but I am going to help the weiner dog grow too. After all, I own 2 of them and wouldn’t want to see another one “go hungry”.

    It’s too bad that the industry is suffering. Wonder if they have tried e-publishing instead? I will have to look further into that.

    Aack! I love Bitch SO much! I don’t care if I don’t win a subscription I just want someone to. The more people exposed to the sheer awesome of Bitch, the better the world will be.

    Love Bitch magazine!  I’ve never had a subscription (I usually steal it from the OB-GYN office – I know… BAD ABBY!) but I love their content.  While I don’t always 100% agree with their POV, I love and respect that they are out there, doing what they do with integrity and humor.

    It would be shame if they folded. I wonder if people are getting that much of that content from blogs like feministing.com now instead of the print magazine?

    Abby,

    I’m impressed your OB-GYN’s office carries Bitch.  Mine just carries parenting magazines.

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard of the magazine.  I don’t generally read mags other than Consumer Reports or whatever I see at the dentist’s office.
    However, I do believe in independent media and I think it’s a good cause, so I donated.  My husband bought a llama at the same time on his laptop (through heifer international), and I also just made homemade falafel.  Wow I really feel good now.

    I’ll have to look for this one next time I am at the bookstore. I’ll donate too.

    oh, i love bitch! and i’d love a subscription. i’ve been justifying not getting one by telling myself it’s actually helping them more to pay more buying it at the newsstand. apparently though, it’s time to get one, before they go under for good, and i just donated.

    spam word: bill26. actually, it was 40 bills, and wish i could afford more.

    I’ve never heard of the magazine, but it sounds right up my alley.

    I’m going to donate some money in memory of my late dachshund Snoopy. She would want it that way.

    I would like to see the feds bail out Bitch, it’s much cheaper than AIG.

    I love their magazine, and will totally donate .

    Could I please be entered to possibly win a subscription?

    I am so glad I wasn’t the only one to bring this to your attention!!  I really hope they get the funds. Bitch saved my sanity (well, that and Bust) when I moved from Oregon to Indiana.

    Really. You have no idea. NW In. in the early-mid 90’s. Vacuum of Hell.

    NOOO We can’t lose Bitch mag!  I actually haven’t seen any new issues locally lately…please put me in the drawing!

    The link is down right now, but I’ll be heading over there to donate definitely!

    I usually buy Bitch at Barnes & Noble. Looks like it is time to subscribe.

    Joanna S. says:

    I knew the Bitchery would rally if they only knew of the plight of this magazine of awesomeness and wonder!  A tip of the hat (as Stephen Colbert would say) to all of y’all who’ve donated.  Bitch saved my sanity on more than one occasion when no one else seemed to be saying WTF?!! about some pretty major issues, and I get a little misty looking at the issue that’s on my coffee table – thinking that it might be the last one.

    I’ve donated too, and I already have a subscription…for those of you who might win one, I’m keeping my fingers crossed ‘cause I always get a little thrill in my bits (both naughty and nice) when I open my mailbox and Bitch is inside.  So, all I can say is, GO WEINER DOG, GO!!

    Bitch is such a terrific magazine, it would be awful to see it go out of business.  I’d love to win a subscription, but if not, one is definitely going on my birthday list.

    Do they even sell BITCH in the bible belt? I’ve never seen it but looked around their website..I’d love a subscription if it’s allowed in TN lol.

    Good luck on the donations, with the added publicity here I’m sure they’ll hit the 40K plus extra!
