Dear AlterNet Reader,
These are scary times and this was a tough year for AlterNet. Despite booming traffic, great content, and the 24/7 publishing of 180 articles a week -- for free -- we ended up with a tough deficit as a result of a big drop-off in ad revenue because people are reading our stories on mobile phones.
So, we need to raise $100K to cover the gap. Happily, we are making great progress. We are more than half-way at $56K. Can you help us close the gap?
We need you. Can help us? Small amounts help. Big amounts help. It all helps. Please, please help guarantee that AlterNet will be as strong in 2016 as we were this year.
Given the fear mongering of Trumpmania, the Bernie Sanders phenomenon, and other crucial issues like climate, terrorism, Black Lives Matter, the war on Planned Parenthood, etc., it is quite a stew of news stories that often scary -- and sometimes hopeful.
Bottom line: We all need to be super well informed. So please help us do our job and reach our goal.
