Announcing the Dynamic Duo “Double Your Donations” Challenge!

Some generous readers are eager to help turbocharge this fundraiser. So if you haven’t have the chance to contribute yet, please take advantage of this “double your donations” challenge!

Two loyal anonymous donors have teamed up to issue a challenge for this fundraiser. They will match the next 30 donations of $100 (and multiples of $100 like $200 up to their match total). Make their big-hearted offer a rousing success by going to our donation page now!

Readers continue to send us thoughtful notes of appreciation, and we thought we’d share some of them: From Acadia:

At that point, we will have to have our own sources of information discovery, development and spread, without any referrence to what CDC says …

Heh, it seems that’s pretty much where we’re at already, and more or less how NC is working for me now. The discussion here has been the go-to for all matters relating to COVID, not only because there are sensible people with decades of practical experience in medicine speaking their minds (e.g., IM Doc), researchers who understand the nuts and bolts, but a community of level-headed people willing to submit official discourse to criticism and BS testing. Do I follow any “guidance” from the CDC? Nope. The only reason I see to pay attention is to have some idea about the disinformation they are spreading and how it affects others around me.

Again, kudos to all at NC for providing clarity on this, and many other matters!

From Thomas H:

NC’s focus on critical thinking is a key aspect of my mental hygiene regimen. As I do not watch TV news, listen to public radio news, or subscribe to any social media platforms, I rely on carefully curated sources like NC, Counterpunch, Consortium News, Black Agenda Report, Boston Review and Pluralistic. The picture that emerges from these sources is at odds with the mainstream chatter I hear in everyday conversations between colleagues, neighbors, associates, and elected officials. I’m grateful to have news sources that provide ready refutation of some of the most outrageous assertions I encounter e.g. Ukranian flags on porches & bumper stickers, “because markets” – neoliberalism über alles, and “the parliamentarian won’t let us… .” After reading reports in my favorite sources, I can safely walk away from the computer, head outside to the garden and gain much needed balance and equanimity.

And paddlingwithoutboats:

NC is a bastion of normal thinking, acute intellectual and analytical cogitation. What a relief.

You can make your contribution here, via check, debit or credit card, or PayPal. If you give by check (we like checks!), be sure to let us know by e-mailing us at with “Dynamic Duo Challenge” in the subject line.

Thanks to these two benefactors for their generosity, and I hope readers will respond in kind.

And if $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 the other important way to help is 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 him up on his fundraiser challenge in whatever way you can!

    Ha – just donated!

    In addition to all great things said about NC in a much better way than I could express it – I love NC because of the conversations (and pictures) on plants, gardening, food growing, and of course the cats. Live long and prosper my friends!

  2. Rod

    Thank you two generous supporters.
    I had a feeling…
    So now I can send the stalwart WC a little support.

    Done! Thanks very much dynamic doublers! And a heartfelt thanks to Yves, Lambert and the entire NC community. You are a bastion of information, sanity and good feels in a very mad world.

  5. Tom Pfotzer

    Thanks to the two loyal anonymous donors!

    For those of us that aren’t able to contribute the big dollahs, we really appreciate the extra impact your generosity enables.

    It’s richness well-spent!


    Does my donation from yesterday get doubled? It’s OK if not, but there’s a (possibly) eligible one, Yves.

    Hi, I apologize for needing clarification.
    I want to donate and clicked the link, for “Aurora Associates”. It wouldn’t let me pay with my Credit Card #, it demanded I open a PayPal Account, which I am not willing to do. (I had one briefly years ago, they switched the name of my account to someone else, unknown to me so I immediately dropped it, looked fraudulent. I also don’t like their links to Apartheid Clyde Musk & vampire Peter Thiel.) Please clarify if I can use the remote link WITHOUT signing my first-born child over to PPal– I appreciate the site and want to donate, I also comment from x to x . . . Let me know if I instead need to “send a checque” like someone above? Email clarification is fine to as NC has had my email address for years.

    Thanks to the doublers and just added to the Tip Jar. Special thanks to Yves, Lambert, Colin, Nick, John, Katiebird, Jules and others. We appreciate the time and dedication that team puts in to aggregate interesting, in-depth articles on a wide variety of topics that are normally only given lip service to by MSM and to adding in their expert views. The broad range of comments and discussions are amazing and a must read, as they add depth and colour to the main posts and a global view, due the commentariat being from all over the globe. NZ is a long way from everywhere and NC makes the world a smaller place by giving us the heads up on what is really happening out there. Love your work and look forward to another interesting year
