A Florida-based magazine “to obliterate the stereotype of, and empower those who dare to pole dance” is at risk of missing its funding goal.

A little over halfway through a 30-day Kickstarter campaign, Bombshell has only raised $340 toward a $2,000 goal.

The money would help the magazine publish its first issue due out next month, according to Topics of coverage for the magazine may include Pole for a Purpose, supposedly Florida’s largest annual pole fitness showcase to benefit charity.

The campaign was initiated by Bombshell Editor in Chief Kaela Bernadino of Tampa, Florida.

Here’s the latest video of the EIC dancing.

“We believe pole dancing is a bombshell in itself because it really breaks down the self loathing you find society has brainwashed men and women into feeling about their bodies,” the Bombshell project page on Kickstarter says.

Successful Kickstarter campaign or not, a launch party will be held Nov. 15 at Buttercup Pole Club.
