We’re excited to announce another “Double Your Donations” challenge. Loyal donor Sarah Henry has stepped up to issue another super-sized challenge, as she has for our annual fundraisers since 2017. She will match the next 30 donations of $100 and the next 40 of $50. So if you’ve been too busy to go to our donations page or send a check, you have a fresh opportunity to amp up your contribution. Make her magnanimous offer a spirited success by going to the Tip Jar now!
Readers have been sending gratifying messages: From Chris K:
I’ve always had a soft heart for the less fortunate among us and targeted my donations to the usual charities that help them. In recent years, however, as I’ve witnessed the destruction of the middle class and the takeover of our government by corporate interests, I’ve decided to broaden my donations to include independent reporters like you who analyze and tell the truth about what is happening. Your own writing and your aggregation of others’ writing is a veritable gold mine for your readers.
I feel fortunate to have stumbled across Naked Capitalism a few years ago.
And Janice M:
I think I “found” you around 2009, and have FOMO when I miss a day scanning the site. I can be very annoying to friends and family when on vacation. But I can’t think of anything more important to me than trying to understand what is going on politically and economically in our world.
Heh, we love you too, you know. We’re not making it up, you really are the island of sanity in a sea of chaos.
NC has been like a Great Books on-line course for the intellectually curious. Downside of this is that it has left me pretty much isolated among friends and family. It’s been a time of, “I can’t believe you are still watching MSNBC, or listening to (and believing), NPR (although they still do some great reporting.)
However, my critical debating skills have been improved by the NC commentariat, as have my databanks of reliable, and often arcane, information on economics, finance, and politics. And, more importantly, encouraged by Amfortas, I have been attempting to hone my ‘listening’ skills, as he does, down at the Feed Store. Trying to curb my tendency to ‘spread the Truth,’ and listen to the Truth as understood by others.
Please make your contribution here, via check, debit or credit card, or PayPal. If you give by check (we like checks! no processor fees!), be sure to let us know by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Sarah Henry Challenge” in the subject line.
Thanks to Sarah for her generosity, and I hope readers will respond in kind.
And if $50 or $100 is a stretch for you, don’t let that stop you from making a donation if you’ve been planning to but haven’t had time yet. Every contribution helps us meet our goals.
And you can help now and all year by telling others about our work, whether in person to friends, family, and colleagues, or in social media like Facebook and Twitter. So I hope you’ll take Sarah up on her fundraiser challenge in whatever way you can!
Thank you Sarah for inspiring me to finally make a donation. Not sure why I waited as long as I did. I pay ten times more for things that aren’t worth 1/10th as much. If I hadn’t found NC I would be one of those idiots that I am always mad at for being so misinformed!
I love that WC keeps those charts going so consistently. They are a great daily check in to see just where we are and where the rest of the world is fighting Covid. I wish the chart of continents/major regions would be added back in. And also wish we (and everyone else) got to see the daily update on how Uttar Pradesh is doing. It would be a nice reminder that WE CAN eradicate Covid and live a somewhat normal life again.
Thank you, Sarah, for your generous double donation challenge. It helped nudge me into doing what I have been meaning to do for the past week.
And I want to thank everyone, organizers, writers, compilers, moderators, and commentators, for making this the very best site for understanding what is going on in the world today. NC is a beacon of light in the dense fog that seems to be descending over all aspects of society and social relations. I don’t know what I would do without it.
Thank you Sarah Henry. Your generosity kickstarted me too. First timer to the fundraiser.
Thank you Sarah for your generosity. I’ve just stuffed a $100 check in an envelope, hope it makes Sarah’s match deadline. Sarah got me kicked into motion this morning. NC has been my favorite source for information for over a year. Unique community and resource. Through hard work prior to discovering NC I’ve learned not to trust Mass Media without reading Right,Left and supposed Center sources. Thank God for NC and some Sub-stack folks and a rare few others that are working to illuminate corporate media’s fantasy narratives. Only if we had an acronym dictionary could NC be better. I cherish the ability of people of the wide political spectrum to voice their views, be given respect, and through appropriate discussion flush out truths. My thanks to all the people that make NC what it is…it can’t be easy.
Well I made a PP donation hope it gets doubled. I actually had a $50 dollar check made out to Strether and had emailed him a couple times to get a mailing address but he never got back to me. I send him photos every now and then and really appreciate the others who do too. If possible would you forward on a few bucks to him for his excellent work?
and another first timer moved to action by the match
Thanks to all, especially the first timers!
