Want to help elephant survive June 17, but don’t have $9/month?

Already, 109 people have joined—and we’re at $1,500/month in recurring donations.

But we only have about a month to go to make $10,000—so we need lots of help getting the word out there.

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

PS: if you are inspired to post this to your Facebook Wall, please comment below and say so. We’re trying to keep track of our community’s support—it’s all we got, really, and I think it might just be enought!

PPS: please tweet this up, so that others may hear about how to help! ~ W.
