We are almost there! Readers have pitched in $43,000 towards our $50,000 fundraiser goal. In these final days of our campaign, you can help take us over the top -- and you can still get these great books -- but sorry, no tote bags here.
If you visit rabble the odds are you like to read. So when we do a fundraiser we want to thank people who support independent progressive media with something they can really sink their teeth in.
You can’t spend an afternoon reading a tote bag (or the swag donors often get as “thank yous” -- no offense!). BUT, if you help rabble tell the stories of social movements and change makers to the world with a donation of $5/month or a single donation of $50 we have some great reading for you.
First, we will send you a copy of upcoming The Best of rabble.ca Special Edition.
Plus, if you can give $8/month you could choose to receive one of these great reads:
The Reconciliation Manifesto: Recovering the Land, Rebuilding the Economy by Arthur Manuel and Grand Chief Ronald Derrickson, with a preface by Naomi Klein
These compelling books do what rabble works to do every day -- shine a light on key issues that we collectively need to address. Independent media like rabble depends on collective support, so please visit rabble.ca/donate and make a difference. And feed that bookworm while you are at it.
Please chip in and lets take this fundraiser over the top!
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
