We love that you love independent media. We love that we can be your partner in news in views. We love that more and more people turn to rabble.ca to get stories that matter to communities across Canada.
The best news is that for the cost of a box of chocolates not only do you get independent media, but so does everyone else. A few dollars from folks that can afford $5, $10, $75 keeps rabble going and growing. A few dollars means that rabble is available regardless of ability to pay. We love that.
Plus if you make a donation we will put you in our weekly prize draw for things like Beacon Bike Lights, 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).
So, yes, we will be your Valentine. You can show some love at rabble.ca/donate.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
