We've just finished crunching the numbers for our winter fundraiser, and guess what? You did it! You've not only ensured we could make our goal of $50,000, but you took us over the top by 5K!
It's hard work, keeping afloat as an independent non-profit media project, but not with all of you by our side. Thanks to this community of socially conscious and informed readers from coast to coast, we've maintained a sustainable model for nearly 19 years! And we're only growing stronger.
So thank you enormously for all of your help and pat yourself on the back! We look forward to the year ahead, including our 19th birthday on April 18!
In the meantime, tell your friends about rabble -- and if you didn't get an opportunity to join, it isn't too late: chip in something extra per month if you can: rabble.ca/donate
We are so grateful to have such a visionary and generous community of rabble readers.

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.
