Pay $9/month, you get your name or business on every page of elephantjournal.com. We already have 170,000 unique visitors a month, and thanks to our great Columnists, random contributors (read: you), award-winning twitter account and popular facebook Page, our readership and reach is growing fast. But our three-month loan runs out June 17, after which point elephant will fall off a cliff…
…into a net? A Grassroots Network (see all those names to the left of this article?), to be exact. But many of us aren’t inspired to fork up $9/month—or can’t afford to in these tough times.
So here’s a grrrrrreat way to help—truly meaningful and touching that hopefully will bring us to our goal:
Here’s what you do: copy and paste this link:
…onto the link button on top of your Facebook Wall.
And, if you have twitter, tweet your support of elephant out to your followers. You could say something like:
A show of community support gives us morale. Right now we’re at $1,500/month in recurring donations. If you can help contribute directly or indirectly, we might just make our sustainability goal of $10,000 (which will go to our editorial staff, paying writers to create ever-improving, original, independent journalism; and basic expenses. I don’t get a cent of this—I get paid by ads).
Again, if we don’t make that goal of $10,000 by June 17, it’ll be time to call it a day.
Yours in the Vision of Enlightened Society,
Waylon on behalf of our writers and readers
