Another OEN Financial Crisis... and a hopeful vision for our future

The reality is that ad revenues have crashed. They used to pay a lot of our bills. We don't have them anymore. So we need to see funds coming in from readers.

You can donate or purchase a membership.

I am seeing desperate requests from a lot of websites and candidates the end of this month. We're in the same boat. The election is a long way off and candidates are hitting you up hard for money. But I believe the press is more important than candidates 17 months out from an election. If we don't see a serious upturn in our funding, the site will be at risk. That will mean that all the voices it supports will be gone. We need about $600 to cover bills TODAY.

Please check out opednews.com/projects . This is a new page that we hope will get you to support specific projects we'd like to complete to make OEN better. Yes, we have hope and a vision for the future.

How can we ever expect to have a 'revolution' if people are not willing to make even a small sacrifice.

Here is what I do. Instead of donating to many large organization, i pool that little money and give it to a small grass- roots organization where I know it has a chance of making a real difference.

I am not saying give to OEN. But give something to some alternative news site that you feel deserves your support. Few people can give a lot, but most people can give something, IF you support alternative media.

I understand that some people are just scraping by, and can ill afford it. But most people can give up a cup of Starbucks coffee or a bag of potato chips.

P.S. If you have a subscription to mainstream media it costs at least $10 a month. Cancel it. They don't deserve it or need it and most msm can be read free by using incognito window. Use the money to buy a membership.
