Thanks to the 600+ premium members on OEN and the many who have donated. But even with them, this year has been the toughest we've ever faced, and I've had to go into debt to keep the site going. We really need your tax deductible donations.

I'll be sending out an email to past donors. Please help me draft the email. Add a comment that says why people should donate or sign up as a premium member to help OpEdNews.

And if you haven't donated lately, or ever, please help.

OpEdNews covers the news and issues in a way few other sites do. We offer a very open forum for discussion and cover topics that are avoided even by many progressive sites.

It's the last week of the year. This has been the toughest year OpEdNews has ever faced. This is the time of year when people make their last donations of the year.

Will you make a tax deductible donationto OpEdnews, or

purchase a premium membership, which may also be tax deductible for you. We have never needed it like we need it now.

I know you are getting hit hard by many other organizations and candidates. But we are really struggling. Please help.

Here's an incentive. Make a donation of $100 or more and I'll mail you a signed copy of my book (if you live in the continental US) The Bottom-up Revolution.

thanks,

rob kall

I contribute as regularly as I can to OpEdNews because it is the most wide ranging and hard hitting reader-inspired news website in existence. It is very useful in the political context for sharing to Facebook groups, for example. Rob Kall's polite request for contributions is far more honest and humble than several other good sites (which I won't name, but they sure as hell are strident!) who ask for money it seems 2 times a day, rather than 4 times a year, like OpEdNews. I feel good when I donate, that it is a worthy and equitable exchange.

I am a senior editor for OpEdNews and a content contributor. For those of you who are unaware of it, we are not paid for our service here. I am pretty sure all of us contribute dollars as well as our time in order to help keep this important voice alive because we believe in it.

I am by no means prosperous, but I have contributed twice so far this year and will contribute again today. I urge all of our readers to do so as well.

My membership renewal is coming up and I will as always renew. I wish I could do more, but am already stretched pretty thin with so much need everywhere.

In the hopes of incentivizing those who don't contribute to this site, where else can any registered member submit articles and quick links and be almost guaranteed publication? That is what keeps me coming back. I have come to rely on OpEd News for lively reading and discussion. I've even made some friends here which I treasure.

Please contribute to keep OpEd News going. It is a truly unique website we would all miss very much if it were no longer around.

OpEdNews is the genuine article free press. Your thoughts, published online free. Advise and consent or disagree, it's a public forum to correct corporate news. Your insights and solutions, your analysis, uncensored. Truly free speech. It deserves wider recognition and support.
Telling it like it is.

Any website operates on financial support of its members. There have been many calls from Mr. Rob Kall, founder and supporter of this site to run the daily operations and meet financial demands. I have responded to his plea and became a Life Member almost three years ago. He needs our financial support and I encourage others to support this great website.

Other than financial support there are value of time, knowledge, and dedication of many conscious and caring people who have taken time away from their busy schedules to submit articles, or post a comment or provide a useful link.

I value and honor great members, great ideas, and great contributions. I thank Rob Kall for making it possible to exchange ideas for a better future for all citizens of the world. In Spirit of New Year (2020), I contributed again.

Happy to help.

It troubles me that such a great source of truth, of genuine, reality based information struggles financially.

I am a premium member, and I hope anyone and everyone who reads my comments makes a pledge.


Of course, I gave a Hannukah gift to OEN, because I love this site.
