How your pledges will support women in the sex industry
The book has hit 100% funded and that means it will now be published and everyone who has pledged will get all the treats on offer for the various pledge levels.
BUT WE’RE NOT DONE YET!
Every pledge over the 100% mark is the profit and I am splitting mine equally with Basis Sex Work Project in Leeds. So, this is the time to keep giving and your money will not only get you a copy of my book, but it will go to Basis and the work they do.
Basis are a small charity and rely on public donations and non governmental funding to keep going - and it is not easy to raise funds for the street outreach work they do. Basis support women in the sex industry, offering services from supplying condoms and lubricants through to guiding sex workers through the legal system and supplying warm clothes to those working on the streets.
If we hit 200% funding, I would be able to donate thousands of pounds to Basis and help secure their work for another year.
December 17th is the International End Violence Against Sex Workers Day. Here is the wonderful (and hugely pregnant) Emily Turner from Basis Sex Work Project to explain the work they do and how your pledges will help.
