Hello lovers!

Today is Friday, and for some, Valentine's Day Eve (I think I just made a new greeting card holiday), and that's just nice.

I really like cinnamon hearts, so today is two days before post-Valentine's Day and its glorious discount prices.

Before we dive into all that is good, silly and sassy, I'd like to note, dear loves, that tomorrow is not only Valentine's Day, but the Annual Women's Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Please lend support in any way you can and if you need more information on the event and in general please see here.

And now, I bring you some lovely linkage.


Kaitlin McNabb is rabble's news and books coordinator and she just recently read Dear Sugar's book and felt compelled to call you all "love." Follow her on twitter @kaitlinmcnabb

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.
