This project was born last night in a conversation among four friends. It went live this morning. Less than twelve hours later, Pennies in Protest has earned over $1,000 in donations from people who want to show their support for organizations targeted by Westboro Baptist Church and its message of hatred and intolerance.
I am so, so humbled by what kindness can do...and this is only the beginning.
If you are one of the kind and generous people who has been a part of this - donating your money, sharing our link, telling your friends, planning your protests - THANK YOU. You are awesome. You are standing up to bullies and telling them that they may not treat their fellow human beings with disrespect. YOU are making a difference in the world, YOU are making it a better place to be. Keep being your wonderful, loving selves! (And keep forwarding our link, let's make our kindness grow!)
