AIBU GoFundMe addiction

I've recently become addicted to a Gofundme campaign. Every time I press refresh the total raised has jumped up and I don't seem to be able to stop.

I'm trying to stay within Mumsnet rules here, so obviously I can't link or promote it.

Does anyone else have this enjoyable problem?

Would that be the Jennifer James gofundme?

DistaffSide Sat 13-Jan-18 12:32:17

That sounds familiar grin

Me too! I am hoping for any known friend's name to come up as I am hoping beyond hope that at least one of my sensible friends is actually still sensible. But there are so many anonymous donaters that they may never appear.

Who knew a saturday morning could be so exciting.

I know, it is fantastic. I just hope they spend it on kick ass lawyers that do some serious damage.

I am reading a book. But I just can't help having a quick refresh and check each time I get to the end of a chapter!

Please will you link it?

We have been advised that a legal challenge to the Labour party on this could be winnable.

Teardrop Fingers crossed.

This thread will be deleted by Mumnset if we link.

Yes! I’ve seen this too. Will definitely donate.

Redonionricedpotato Sat 13-Jan-18 12:46:57

I’m so excited by the thought that this could be won, but worry that it would provide added impetus for self ID to be pushed through?

I think if you search for 'women' on the the particular funding site it is the top campaign at the moment. ..

MyAimIsTrue Sat 13-Jan-18 13:06:35

Why will it be deleted it it's linked? I've never known that before.

jeaux90 Sat 13-Jan-18 13:06:50

I've donated. I keep refreshing it too grin

It is wonderful to watch the fund grow. I found it difficult to find the page without the link.

OddBoots Sat 13-Jan-18 13:19:19

There's a nice update on the page, pretty amazing that 190 people have donated so far, it's only be a few hours.

PocketCoffeeEspresso Sat 13-Jan-18 13:22:49

I keep coming back to it as well. #VOTESFORWOMEN!

PoirotDidIt Sat 13-Jan-18 13:25:39

I've literally just bookmarked it in order to check later!

HemlockSpartacus Sat 13-Jan-18 13:26:23

I love the choice of image for it too, so appropriate

irretating Sat 13-Jan-18 13:31:34

PoirotDidIt Sat 13-Jan-18 13:37:23
