Imagine 2013 with strong independent media, you can make it happen

Imagine 2013 with strong independent media, a media that not only didn't endorse Harper (like 80 per cent of those that did endorsements did) but that brings critical and community perspectives to the news of today.  That's a happy new year!

With your help rabble.ca can be strong. Your donation makes it happen. Please donate now!

Your donation of $15, $25, $50, $100, $250, $1,000 is a great investment in building the media you want, in changing the conversation.

PLUS, each week we draw a winner from our donation drive donors for a prize. With your donation you could win great prizes such as one of twenty five Beacon Bike Lights, one of Five Canadian CD music packs, our new rabble.ca tote bag, or even a year's supply of Zatoun Fair Trade Extra Virgin Olive Oil (six 750ml bottles).

We will be drawing prizes every week from donors so the earlier you donate the more likely you are to win a prize!
