I’m thrilled to report that on Giving Tuesday, 524 inspiring individuals collectively donated $73,000 online to support The Electronic Intifada’s essential reporting on Palestine in the coming year.
In addition, we logged about $9,000 in checks and pledges, for a grand total of $82,000.
Because this outpouring of support met our $80,000 goal for the day, we unlocked an additional $20,000 challenge bonus pledged by several generous friends of The Electronic Intifada.
We are deeply grateful to every person who took part in our Giving Tuesday challenge and to the visionaries who pledged the extra $20,000 to motivate us – and you – to reach higher for Palestine.
This inspires us to recommit to producing a fearless publication that smashes through Israeli propaganda with the most trusted, high-quality reporting to educate, inform and inspire people all over the world for justice in Palestine.
If you did not make a donation on Giving Tuesday, please know that we still need your support with a donation today.
Yesterday, we secured just over $100,000 of the resources The Electronic Intifada needs to pay its editors, contributors, photographers and video makers who bring you powerful reporting, investigations, analysis and arts all year long.
The funds we raised on Giving Tuesday put us about half way towards the overall goal for our year-end campaign.
Through the month of December, we will be asking readers and supporters to continue making donations.
You know the quality and power of the work we do, and you know that our independence and ability to do it depend on you.
So please don’t wait! If you have not yet done so, consider making a donation today.
Gifts are welcome from anywhere in the world and are tax-deductible for US taxpayers.
If you already donated, I once again extend heartfelt thanks on behalf of The Electronic Intifada team. You are our champion!
With warmest wishes,
Powerful reporting, powered by you
These stories are just a sample of the essential work The Electronic Intifada has published this year – made possible by people who care about justice in Palestine, like you.
