Our family won a spot in the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, April 1. Of course, in order to accept this spot, we have to get to Washington, DC by 7:30 AM on Monday, April 1, and doing so would be a financial burden for our family that we just can't swing. Someone suggested that we do a fundraiser to offset the cost of the trip.

Having a family like ours at such a high profile event is important for several reasons: 1. We are a lesbian family, we matter. 2. We are fat and active, and Michelle Obama needs to see that. 3. Our children are adorable, everyone should get to be with them before the awkward stage sets in.

We estimate that the minimum we'd need to help us out is $1000 (rental car, meals, hotel, Metro fares, etc.), but I set the goal at $2000 because that will cover the trip entirely, making things a little less tight when we come back to real life.

If you'd like to donate miles so we can fly instead of drive, let us know and we'll try to work that out.

We'd love your help, and we'd love it if you shared this with people who might also be willing to help.

Thanks so much for caring about the political value of our queer family being visible at the 2013 White House Easter Egg Roll.
