Like many nonprofits, MinnPost has an end-of-year wish list.
Ours has 10 items. Some examples: An annual shave for Eric Black. Warm gloves and a scarf for Sharon Schmickle. A Los Angeles Vikings sweatshirt for Jay Weiner.
And $30,000 to help us make our 2009 budget — by Tuesday, Dec. 22. (The $18,631 donated on Give to the Max Day gave us a great head start.)
This year has been especially tough for journalism, and we respectfully request an end-of-year gift. Because we need it. Seriously.
MinnPost leads the nation among high-quality regional news sites. We have the largest number of donors, the most readers, and the most advertising revenue. We have the best chance to prove that high-quality regional journalism can be a sustainable enterprise.
We’re not there yet. With your help, we know we’ll get there.
Vote — then donate
Vote here for your favorite wish list item, or add one of your own. Then pitch in with a gift of any size to support high-quality journalism for people who care about Minnesota.
Thanks for your support.
P.S. We’ll let everyone know how we’re progressing toward the $30,000 goal via a box on our home page. (Because people donate in a variety of ways, the total listed on our Razoo end-of-year page is just a small part of the story.)
