Dan Savage’s #ITMFA Swag Campaign Cuts Second $100,000 Check For Planned Parenthood And ACLU

Just in from Dan Savage:

I’m thrilled to announce that ITMFA is sending a second round of checks to the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, and the International Refugee Assistance Project.

This morning we sent off checks Planned Parenthood ($33,333.33), the ACLU ($33,333.33) and the International Refugee Assistance Project ($33,333.34)—money we raised selling ITMFA (“Impeach The Mother Fucker Already”) buttons, t-shirts, tanks, hats, stickers, coffee cups, and lapel pins at www.ITMFA.org.

We got to mail those checks out because tens of thousands Savage Love/Slog readers and Savage Lovecast listeners have ordered #ITMFA gear since we launched ITMFA back in January.

We were hoping to raise a little money to fight the Trump administration’s attack on civil liberties, immigrants, and women’s reproductive rights but we didn’t expect to raise enough to donate $200,000—all the proceeds from sales—to these great orgs in such a short time. So a huge “thank you!” to everyone who bought ITMFA gear, wore it out, talked it up, posted pics to their social media accounts, and had some fun!

Dan tells me that the project got a “huge bump” the last time I wrote about it, so if you don’t yet have any ITMFA swag, get some today. I have the hat and it’s always fun to explain what the letters stand for. And people WILL ask you.

    Bravo

  • David J

    Once people lose their health insurance, or can no longer afford their higher premiums, I bet the sales of these items will skyrocket even more.

  • Rex

    And, please, wear your hat with a smile, like the guy in the photo.

  • TuuxKabin

    Got the pins. Stickers. For ITMFA I may pop for a cap, with the sun’s angle so low, it’ll give good shade, je, je.

    • hudson11

      well, there goes your Christmas gift. What am i going to do now?

      • TuuxKabin

        Bring Hudson with you and Mark, next May?

        Thanks!

    • Gigi

      I “upvoted” this when really I wanted to give it a big thumbs down.

      • Bluto

        Depressing shit, ain’t it. & this is merely 1 reason to ITMFA.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Bought. Bumper sticker going on my car and more for Hanukah gifts. You know what would be a better Hanukah gift? If the MF is out of office before the holidays get here, (and speaking of Hanukah gifts, while Jared might be difficult to gift wrap for Steve, I will use duct tape to make sure things are secure…)

    • Adam King

      Duct tape comes in a variety of festive colors.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        Just like when gifting wine, sometimes a gift bag makes more sense than wrapping paper.

        • Adam King

          I’m sure Steve will be touched by your good taste. I hear he’s quite the connoisseur.

    • Tawreos

      If things keep going the way they are going for him and the rest of the family he married into he may go willingly

    • Gustav2

      They say you can fix anything with duct tape, but you can’t fix Jared with duct tape.

      His hand gestures are creepy. Well, like everything else about him.

      • Ranger One

        His hands and arms are very feminine in gesture, soft and small. Weird.

      • Keroleen

        I normally don’t have any problem with people who gesture with their hands while they speak, but with him I just can’t deal. Every time I see it I want to incapacitate his arms to make it stop.

        • Nowhereman

          He’s got a pat series of gestures that he makes, and most of them seem to have nothing to do with what he’s saying. That “OK” sign that he makes is also the neo nazi White Power gang sign. I find that one especially creepy.

  • BlindBill

    but now it needs to be changed to ITFMA “Impeach the fucking moron already” why disparage mother fuckers?

    • bambinoitaliano

      Pence?

    • JT

      You say fucking moron, I say motherfucker. Both are applicable. ITMFFMA!

      • Adam King

        Potayto potahto.

        • edrex

          “fuck-er”/ “fuck-ah”

          • bzrd

            fck yeah

  • netxtown

    For those who want to help PR and diss donnie – ITMFA is donating all proceeds through next Tuesday to PR’s Hispanic Foundation.

    Fuck donnie.

  • netxtown

    I’ve received official word that nearby aliens have issued a ‘pass’ on abducting donnie. Aliens have no need for an orange carny barker… dammit.

    • Adam King

      Perhaps they could expand on their cattle-mutilation program.

      • netxtown

        they did express some interest in collecting brain matter, but their scientists objected as they have enough shit to do.

  • worstcultever

    I especially love the lapel pins. God DAMN why hasn’t somebody turned that flag pin cult bullshit on its ass before this? Brilliant! I’m sending Fearless Maxine a pair (for starters)!

    • Nowhereman

      They could be made into earrings!

  • Vira

    Has anyone trademarked “25×45” yet? Dibs!, if not.

    • The_Wretched

      You’d probably want a copyright registration of your expression of 25×45 on a hat or something rather than a trademark – unless you were planning some kind of business. TM and ® only denote the maker of a good or service.

  • JIM W

    BUMMER! They don’t take PayPal.

    • Lantor

      Is Peter Thiel still involved with PayPal? Dan might consider not taking PayPal a good thing.

  • narutomania

    Does the hot guy with the great smile come with the red hat? Because, I like the hat, but I REALLY like the guy !!!!

    Rawr.

  • Pete Wascher

    waytogo! why did the irap did more money? 🙂

  • JWC

    good show

  • Piet

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I’m shallow and I want the name and number of that guy in the hat so I can arrange for him to do things I need done. Need done right now.

  • Lars Littlefield

    This makes me happy. Very happy.

  • kareemachan

    I have no idea what anybody is talking about…..
