We live in interesting times.
A free press is under attack, consumer advocacy is a dying profession, and corporate America is almost literally laughing all the way to the bank with its ill-gotten gains.
Only one person can stop this: you.
As we enter the final weeks of our spring fundraiser, I hope you’ll keep that in mind. You are all that’s standing between justice — and consumer armageddon. You can take a stand and say, “Enough!”
And you can add your name to this list of supporters now.
A voice for you. You’ve heard a lot about “fake news” in the last few months. But this is real news. Real people. Real cases. And bona fide consumer advocacy with real results. Your support will keep that voice heard in a morass of digital confusion.
A new lease on life. Your financial support is keeping the lights on, letting my advocacy team and I fight another day. In just the last 48 hours, I’ve learned that we have to move servers yet again. New servers are expensive. Your donations help offset those costs.
Free airline tickets. This week, I’m giving away Southwest Airlines tickets to select underwriters. That’s right, you’re not alone. A lot of forward-looking companies like Southwest also want to help. They’re supporting this fundraiser. Won’t you join them?
Here’s where things stand now. We’ve raised just over $13,000 of the $25,000 needed to keep this site operating. We have less than two weeks before the fundraiser ends. That’s a lot of ground to cover.
I can’t do it without you.
So if you want to keep this independent voice alive, support quality consumer advocacy and keep greedy, unethical companies from stealing your hard-earned money, please consider becoming a supporter now.
