Red Card Homophobia: Campaign Round-Up

October 8, 2010

Updates galore!

  • We now have a forum, so if livejournal, facebook, twitter, and tumblr aren’t your thing, please feel free to participate there. That being said we now have 1,140 fans on facebook, 920 followers on tumblr, 777 followers on twitter, and 598 members on livejournal. And we are continuously growing!

  • Our friends at Liverpool Offside included us in their game recap from Liverpool’s recent Europa League match against FC Utrecht. Thanks LFC Offside! And football fans, please remember to use the hash tag #redcardhomophobia during your match tweets.
  • We are also trying to raise money so that we can order Red Card Homophobia merchandise in bulk. If you can, please donate here. Any amount helps, even if it’s just 1 dollar, euro, pound, yen, or whatever your currency may be. As a note, and because you should know where your money is going: any profits we make from merchandise, and any further donations with be given to charity, or for any further expenses that RCH will have (different kinds of merchandise, events, etc), depending on how we grow.
  • To that effect, we’d also like to open this post to any suggestions, comments, or questions that our readers have. We’d like to stress that this campaign is extremely new, grassroots, and, ideally, completely member-driven. We know that not everyone reading may be tumblr, facebook, twitter, livejournal, or forum savvy so if you have any suggestions or anything you’d like to see done please feel free to leave them in the comments here or send an email to redcardhomophobia[at]gmail[dot]com.

    I’m so happy this cause is getting recognition and growing in numbers. And, wow, that photo collage is really great!

    I also like the collage, which lead my mind to another idea: Could you guys create a Twitter background – including the logo and the several page links on the left hand side plus these gorgeous pictures from the collage. There should be two versions: one for the #oldTwitter, the other for the #newTwitter.

    I had another idea for a fundraiser – an ‘online yard sell’, basically people offering some football related goods and all profit goes to the cause. I don’t think there will be a copyright issue, since it’s the same as selling anything else on eBay, right?

    Love the collage and those are some very impressive numbers, since it feels like just last week after the first posts.
