I guess you are not thankful for OpEdNews-- for the great articles we publish, for the voice we give to voices who are ignored or silenced by the mainstream?
It looks like you are not thankful for OEN covering issues that even many progressive media won't cover?
If you were, you would support us with your tax deductible donations or premium membership purchases.
I bitterly say this because the response to my somewhat desperate call for help produced hardly any response. We do have some wonderful supporters who have showed up and purchased memberships and donated, and we're very grateful to them.
But we see 120-240,00 visitors a month, with thousands of regulars. And we're not getting the help we need to simply pay the bills.
We can't do this without your support. Other sites seek to raise $50,000 or $100,000 a month. We need less than $5,000. And we're not even close. Considering the hours I put, this is unsustainable.
We're really struggling to pay the bills. This has been a terrible month for bringing in the essential funds we need to keep things going. Please take a moment today and kick in what you can to help us.

more detailed bio:
Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization (more...)
