The Naked Capitalism community has spoken loudly and clearly. You’ve said you want this site to be more effective and you’ve been willing to provide tangible backing for your desire to have us demystify finance, call out chicanery in high places, parse propaganda, and in our small way, help promote the creation of a more just society.
We set an initial target of 750 donors. You met that yesterday. We set a new target of 1000. You blew past that today. We are now at 1060 donors. Let’s see if we can get to 1200 before the close of this effort, midnight PST. Join us and participate via our Tip Jar, another credit card portal or by check (see here for details).
We’ve gotten SO many messages that it will take me some time to dig through them. I wanted to share this one:
I regret I haven’t more to give, but I’ve recently lost my job and haven’t yet started receiving unemployment. I will be sending a check for $20 tomorrow, Saturday November 12th.
Thanks for all you do to bring Naked Capitalism together. I plug it a lot and I have certainly become better educated about finance.
I told him not to send anything until he was at least on unemployment. He agreed on the condition I include him in the total.
Those of you who are under financial stress, please take care of yourselves first. Others will make up for you. But if you give, even a little, please do. If you can give more, give more. If you can give a lot, give a lot. Those of you who donated early, I thank you, and if you are able, consider chipping in another $10, $15, $25 on behalf of those in the NC readership who are cash strained but value their participation in the community. We only have a few hours left and on behalf of all of you who contribute, by guest blogging, financially, in comments, by providing links, or the occasional tech advice and prodding, I’d like us to make this effort as big a success as possible.
