Thanks to the generosity of many loyal readers, we’re within closing in our targets. We’re at 1696 donors and closing in on our new goal of 1750. And at $33,330, we are also just a wee bit away from our final fundraiser target of $35,000 for original reporting.
Be one of the people that makes 2019 the first year that the fundraiser had surpassed both its financial and donor goals! Remember, every dollar (or pound or Euro or Australian or New Zealand dollar) you give now goes to original reporting.
And if you need a reminder of the sort of unique coverage your funding makes possible, Lambert is DJing a debate open thread on Tuesday, so ready your drinking games and fitting YouTube clips.
Will you help make this fundraiser an even bigger success?
Some of you who have been planning to give may have been busy with family, travel, work demands. And some of you like deadlines! So please take a couple of minutes to visit our fundraiser page to chip in for another year of razor-sharp analysis, one-stop news recaps twice a day, lively and insightful discussions, and your daily dose of cute animal pictures.
We’ve deeply appreciated not only the many donations we’ve gotten, but also the kind notes from readers. As Will E wrote,
I’m proud to have been able to donate just a little towards your fine work. While my default browser page is my gmail account, if i had to pick a second it would be your site. I find your work deeply comforting to me. Your work and the community of thoughtful readers that you’ve gathered is pure gold to me and worth every penny a thousandfold. I only wish I could donate more, but next time! Your work makes me feel less lonely, and I am deeply grateful for this
From Tom P:
Places like NC provide forums for emotional, intellectual development outside the campus. If you’re in a mood to address the big issues of your time, there’s not much standing in your way.
And William M:
$50. I wish it were more. The best news source in America.
These are high expectations for all of us at Naked Capitalism, and we will devote ourselves to living up to them.
