Down to the Wire, Last Chance for 2016 Fundraiser

Only a bit over four hours remain in the Naked Capitalism fundraiser. Show your support of critical thinking, relentless pursuit of captured officials and lame pundits, demystifying finance, exposing looting, and cute animal pictures. In the last two hours, we’ve gotten 21 more donations, putting us over our target of 1575 and making this as record fundraiser!

Every dollar you give now helps fund more original reporting. And when you look at our budget compared to that of mainstream media newsrooms, Naked Capitalism delivers on a remarkably skimpy resources. Your contributions make a tangible difference here in a way they do at few other places. So please give whatever you can, since any donations, $10, $100, or $1000, is an investment in helping us do what we can to understand and influence the dramatic shifts happening in the economic and political realm.

And readers continue to send notes that express their enthusiasm for what you readers have helped build, a real community.

From C.R:

Thank you for your wonderfully informative news blog. Next year, I hope to increase my donation. Until then ~ best wishes for another successful year of providing such relevant, revealing and informative news stories!

And Barbara P:

Thanks for all you do! I don’t know of another source for the information and commentary you provide.

Join us and participate via our Tip Jar, which tells you how to give by check, credit or debit card (be sure to send us a message, “Check is in the mail” with the dollar total in the message body so we can count your donation in the fundraiser total).

With our deadline of midnight PDT (3:00 AM) we can still make it if those of you who haven’t had time yet chip in, and those who’ve given earlier make an additional donation on behalf of those that are suffering financial hardships. If you can give a little, give a little. If you can give more, give more. If you can give a lot, give a lot. You are investing in making a difference and in making the next year the best one ever for this community. And thanks again for your generosity!

    OK, I donated (via PayPal as that’s the only way I can do so at the moment). If I could have afforded to donate enough to hit the goal I would have! Looking back on the time I’ve spent reading the articles I here I’ve come to realize it’s consistently been the best news source I go to. I’ve sometimes been aggravated by the articles here, disagreeing strongly with some of the views expressed and then had myself proven wrong by subsequent events. To me that’s the sign of really first rate reporting.

    Sorry I didn’t make it before midnight EST, but I hope it still can count. I have learned so much from this blog, though I don’t get to read it as much as I would like. Not only is the content superb, I have also been introduced to so many other writers and websites that I would otherwise not have known about. I have been reading this blog for about 8 years now, and I still find it one of my favorite places to go for news and as an information source. I have recommended it to numerous friends, and I will continue to do so as long as this blog lasts (unless I go first!). Great job!

    I too am a procrastinator, and didn’t make the midnight deadline.

    Naked Capitalism is my #1 news source. Mainstream media kills me because it is either mindlessly conservative or mindlessly liberal. I really appreciate a place where people are willing to consider other perspectives. You all do a wonderful job, thank you.
