Dear Making Mothers,
 
A huge thank you to everyone who has been helping to support our crowdfunding campaign. It has been and continues to be an intense, heartening, challenging and ultimately very humbling process. We are raising awareness and building community as much as raising funds, which in the long run is even more valuable than the money but the money is going to massively help! And we have only 8 days left and 7K to raise if we are going to meet our target. 

So, in this newsletter:
Breaking news from my MWM co-facilitator with whom the whole thing began – this weekend my son volunteered to “save Mothers Who Make from doom” (his words). Here he is to do it in person:
Saving Mothers Who Make From Doom
You can pledge/save MWM from doom here.
The 5 things you can do to help:
 
  1. GIVE WHAT YOU CAN: if you have not already done so already. You can give £1, £5, £10, £100, £1000! Anything and everything helps.
    You can pledge here.
     
  2. USE EMAIL, FACEBOOK, TWITTER to spread the word. Message people directly. Ask shamelessly! It is an invitation to engage, not the demanding of money. Become a MWM ambassador. Ask family, friends, colleagues, anyone, everyone.
     
  3. SHARE THESE BLOGS: I have been blogging – I set myself the challenge of writing a blog a day during our campaign. They are all here: http://matildainmotion.tumblr.com. The latest is a succinct summary of what the money will go on and the difference it will make: http://matildainmotion.tumblr.com/post/168496726073/mothers-who-make-diary8-a-succinct-summary-of-the
    There is also one I wrote about why people that are not mothers or not makers might want to support us, which I have found helpful in enabling me to spread the word wider: http://matildainmotion.tumblr.com/post/168148363758/mothers-who-make-for-those-who-are-not-mothers-or
     
  4. SEND ME YOUR ART!: Photos and web links ASAP please. To reach a wider audience we need people to see the incredible creative output they are supporting. This is good publicity for you, as well as for MWM!! Send it to mleyser@mac.com and I will use it on the crowdfunder site, on tumblr and on our social media to show the world what they are funding. You can also post it directly yourself using #motherswhomake on twitter or instagram.
     
  5. READ and share this interview PIPA did with me here: http://www.pipacampaign.com/2017/12/mothers-who-make/

    Do all this NOW. We have only 8 days left to raise our revolutionary fund!
    Thank you! Let’s make 2018 a year in which your mothering and your making work are better recognised and valued!
