A national campaign in support of the Repeal the 8th movement has raised a huge €322,000 in just one day through their online crowdfunding campaign.  

At the time of writing, the amount raised was €319,000 which had already increased to €323,000 by the time of publication. 

Together for Yes is the national campaign to remove the 8th Amendment from the Irish Constitution.

They "are campaigning for a more compassionate Ireland that allows abortion care for women who need it", and are now aiming to raise €400,000 this week which will provide 40,000 posters.

Together for Yes had an original target of €50,000 which was absolutely smashed within hours, and those behind the campaign have thanked everyone who donated so far, saying that "the majority of people in Ireland want change, and today you proved it."

There is six days left in their crowdfunding campaign as they aim to raise €400,000 "to continue to put posters across the country, and to fund additional advertising and promotional materials in other key outlets for a positive outcome on the 25th May. 

Together for Yes state that if "they raise more than is needed for posters your donations will go towards other ways to fight for a 'Yes' vote."
