Wanted: 35 people to put us over the top

Please chip in to support rabble's election 2019 coverage. Support rabble.ca today for as little as $1 per month!

We have four days and $3,420 to meet our Karl fundraiser goal.  That means if just 35 people put in $100 we go over the top to keep the important independent Parliamentary reporting of award-winning journalist Karl Nerenberg going. You can put us over the top right here.

What do you get for your $100?  You’ll keep an important voice in the media available to all.  You’ll read political stories of substance.  You’ll get some cool stuff from rabble.  At the $100 level of our campaign your perks include: an exclusive audio interview with Karl on the current state of Parliamentary politics, a Karl on Parl fridge magnet (stick it with pride!), an invitation to a Google hang-out with Karl, AND a Best of Karl on Parl book!  Of course we offer perks for a wide range of donations.  Check them out here.

Karl’s columns are a must-read for political news followers, as he consistently produces quality piece after quality piece.  You donate knowing that Karl will deliver.  If you want to see quality reporting on Harper, on the environment, on Indigenous issues, please support our campaign to keep Karl reporting.

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.
