Generous reader John Z volunteered early to amplify this fundraiser. He had an unexpected windfall this year and wanted to give some of it to Naked Capitalism. As he said, “It keeps me sane in this crazy, crazy world.”
If you haven’t yet been able to contribute, please use this “double your donations” challenge to turbocharge your gift!
John Z will match the next 100 donations of $50 (and multiples of $50 like $100 up to his match total). Support his vote of confidence in your daily fix of news, opinion, rousing discussions, and cute animal pictures by going to our donation page now!
Other readers have been telling us why Naked Capitalism is important to them:
I can’t emphasize enough how valuable this site is, and try to spread the word. Thanks to our esteemed hosts and everyone who makes this place such a pleasure and refuge: a one-stop shop for analysis, commentary, and animal pix – tough combo to beat!
From Colonel Smithers:
Just contributed and delighted to so.
I began reading* NC in the spring of 2008, following a link from the Grauniad (still respectable then and some years from banning me / my socialist heresy) and having just moved into regulatory and trade policy at a City trade body. It was half a dozen or so years before I started commenting. I reckon that it’s the same with many readers.
*Religiously so daily and at some cost to my work productivity, but I think NC makes me a better and better informed person and employee.
I have noticed some new commentators and from new locations in the past year or so. It’s great that the NC COMMUNITY is growing and able to share live reporting and insights from so many walks of life and in different locations. Readers who have yet to pipe up, please do so. It’s great to know that we are not alone and all have something to say and share.
From Amy P:
Thank you for providing not only such a varied selection of daily links but also for the wonderful comment section. Your commentariat has led me to discover new books to read (“The Snoring Bird”), podcasts to listen to (“The Great Simplification”), even YouTube Channels (“The Duran” and “DarkHorse Podcast”). I know the occasional recipe has been posted but haven’t tried one yet! Thank you.
Just donated now. Keep up the good necessary work. Great articles, Great Analysis, Great Commentary.
There is no website like it.
We are humbled by these kind words and will keep working hard to meet your high expectations!
Please 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 email@example.com with “John Z Challenge” in the subject line.
Thanks to John for digging deep to support our community, and I hope readers will respond in kind.
And if $50 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!
