AlterNet Editorial: We're Not Going to Get All 'Cute-sy' on You

Dear AlterNetter,

You may have noticed that it's already March. Maybe you even thought we forgot all about fundraising this spring. Ah, but we were just giving you a rest. We still need your support -- in fact, now more than ever.

(If you don't need any convincing, just do the good deed right now.)

Rather than trying to be 'cute-sy' with you, using themes and concepts that attempt to make us look clever, we're asking you straight. Will you make an investment in AlterNet?

You know what we give you: the best progressive news and commentary, 24/7 -- all free. Hundreds of articles, videos, blogs, and columns. From our writers and from all over the web.

If you read AlterNet, you're on top of the news. And you do read us -- you and millions of others -- so clearly you like what we produce.

But we're a non-profit. Meaning that we need to raise enough dough every year to stay in business. We do that from foundations, via ad sales on the site, and most importantly, from readers like you!

You know the drill. It's like NPR, PBS, Democracy Now, the ACLU, and the many other places you give your hard-earned money. Will AlterNet be there when you write out your checks this month?

We hope so. Please make a contribution and help us stay on top of the issues you care passionately about, -- global environmental issues, the war on Iraq, corporate accountability, economic justice, healthcare, civil liberties, reproductive justice, drug policy, immigration, voting rights, and more.

Change is in the air and we are all for it. But, what kind of change? AlterNet's role, with your support, is to ensure that progressive values and vision will be the foundation for real change -- for protection of our rights, for fairness and equality, and for an economy that works for everyone. Support AlterNet and we will work on your behalf.

Because Information is Power!

Understand the importance of honest news ?

So do we.

The past year has been the most arduous of our lives. The Covid-19 pandemic continues to be catastrophic not only to our health - mental and physical - but also to the stability of millions of people. For all of us independent news organizations, it’s no exception.

We’ve covered everything thrown at us this past year and will continue to do so with your support. We’ve always understood the importance of calling out corruption, regardless of political affiliation.

We need your support in this difficult time. Every reader contribution, no matter the amount, makes a difference in allowing our newsroom to bring you the stories that matter, at a time when being informed is more important than ever. Invest with us.
