Hey everyone! I don’t usually do this, but I truly feel that this is an extremely great cause. This year, my Vox Chapter and I are raising money for the Jane Fund, an organization in Massachusetts that helps people who need an abortion and have no money or insurance to be able to afford the procedure. 

The Jane Fund really saves and changes lives. As a group, we are hoping to raise enough money to cover one first trimester procedure - $610. However, I am only looking to raise $150 of that. Please help us reach our goal! I have 2,300+ followers and if just one hundred and fifty of you donated $1 to the cause we could make a real difference in the life of someone who needs our help. (If you want to donate less than $15, simply pick the “other” option). 

If you can’t donate but wish you could, I would love it if you could reblog this post. Maybe someone else can!

If you are interested in donating, check out my fundraising page here.

I’ve still only raised $65. My team as a whole is up to $380 of our $610 but we need your help to get there! Please donate and help us fund a procedure for someone who could not afford one otherwise!
