Okay, I guess it's time for us to spell it out: We're two months into our first and only fund-raising drive, hoping to raise $20,000, which we could easily do if our regular readers all just gave $1 apiece. Instead, we have a small number of you readers who repeatedly give generous donations of $25-$300 (thank you!). The rest of you give exactly nothing, zip, nada, zilch.
The upshot is that we don't come close to raising the kind of money that would allow the members of this collective -- who put out the reports on this award-winning site for nothing, doing the reporting and writing in our spare time -- to cut back on our day jobs and actually devote serious time to alternative news reporting.
There's really no excuse. You all clearly want what we are producing, and value our reports (we know that because you keep coming back and reading what we write), and yet, by and large, you, our readers, are just taking it for free. It's bad enough that the vast majority of you evidently don't feel any solidarity at all to support our work with a few bucks (which can be sent via Paypal account, credit card, or by mail as a check or cash). But solidarity aside, just from the point of view of self-interest, we could provide so much more of the unique news we have been providing for almost four years if we had some serious money coming in to support us in that work.
So readers, hear our call! Suck it up, show some solidarity, support what we do, don't just take it, and send us what you can. We're hoping from $5 per reader, but even $1 would help, if you all did it.
It's easy: use the handy Paypal button above, or send cash or a check made out to Dave Lindorff/TCBH to POB 846, Ambler, PA 19002
Watch what happens if you all finally start coming through with that support!
If you haven't contributed yet, please try sending even $5 (we know we're worth at least that much).
And please spread the word about this site to friends and acquaintances using the envelope icon below. That doesn't even cost anything. Together we can do this!
