Readers have made an remarkable response to our final appeal, for our increased target of $40,000 to fund more original reporting. Since our last update, a mere three hours ago, we went from being 44 shy of meeting our latest of 1550 to being a mere 5 shy at 1545. And we were then $3,345 short of our $40,000 goal but now are only $1,230 below!!
And more readers are chiming in.
From David L:
Thanks for all your diligent work, insight and dedication to Naked Capitalism!
I just donated another $100 to the “cause”. After supporting Bernie, I am a bit broke for the year, but since the only place to get real news and political/economic information is from Naked Capitalism, I feel obliged to scrape the bottom of the barrel. Keep up the good work, all of you. Frankly, I don’t know how you find the time or energy, but then I am retired and traveling in the slow lane in Maine. You are absolutely unique. Never give it up!
Go Naked Capitalism! Keep on doing what you all do so well!
Only a few hours remain in the Naked Capitalism fundraiser. Show your support of critical thinking, merciless evisceration of lame punditry, deep diving into turbid financial waters, and cute animal pictures.
Every dollar you give now goes to support more original reporting. And even though we’re delighted to have raised $42,000, consider how modest that is compared to newsroom budgets, let alone that of the think tanks whose output we regularly take down. Make a high-leverage investment in exposing the fabrications that help support looting and policies that serve the rich at expense of the rest of us.
Be one of the last to push our fundraiser over the top. Let’s see if we can get to 1575 donors and provide even more funding for original reporting before the close of this effort, midnight PST. Every donation helps get us towards our goals and make this site even better.
There are multiple ways to give. The first is the fundraiser page, where you can use a debit card, a credit card or a PayPal account (the charge will be in the name of Aurora Advisors).
You can also send a check (or multiple post-dated checks) in the name of Aurora Advisors Incorporated to
Aurora Advisors Incorporated
903 Park Avenue, 8th Floor
New York, NY 10075
Please also send an e-mail to email@example.com with the headline “Check is in the mail” (and just the $ en route in the message) to have your contribution included in the total number of donations.
Again, I’m overwhelmed by this response from readers. Lambert and I want to give a big thanks to all of you who have donated already. If you can give a little, $5, $10, $50 or $5,000, it all has an impact. You are investing in creating a different debate, a different vision, and a different, more just society.
