Wow. My non-rabble life is seriously kicking my ass right now. Well, let's be honest, my rabble life is probably kicking my ass right now too.

You probably feel me on that. How tired are you?

I'm so tired the bags under my eyes have become suitcases.

I'm so tired I thought today was spring when there's a snowstorm outside my window.

But okay, something that cheered me up this week was rabble's boss lady sending a note to all my social media accounts to make sure I knew Dairy Queen was giving away free ice cream. We have our priorities straight here. Don't even worry.

So take a deep breath and a nice, relaxing break with this week's Feel Good Friday and then GET BACK TO WORK OH MY GAWD!!!

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.
