Back to school time is upon us. Soon, the yellow school buses will be driving their routes and college campuses will flood with cars and minivans for move-in day rituals. You can almost feel the rustle of leaves that will replace our dog days of summer.
As you or your friends and family members begin stocking up on school supplies, we wanted to remind you of a very simple way you can help support Raging Chicken Press at no additional cost to you. If you do any of your shopping at Amazon.com, use THIS LINK every time you shop and Raging Chicken Press will receive 6% of your purchase at no cost to you. Your entire shopping experience will be the same, only 6% of your purchase will go to Raging Chicken Press instead of the corporate coffers of Amazon. Even better bookmark THIS LINK and use it every time you shop on Amazon to help keep us going strong.
This is the time of the year when we begin a strong push to try to raise enough money to cover our costs for next year. We’ve had to add additional security on the site, increase our server space, and upgrade some equipment in order to keep pace with our growing site. This year we’ve also had to deal with increasing attacks by right-wing, billionaire-backed front groups who seem to be getting nervous about our reporting and unwillingness to back down in the face of intimidation. We need your help more than ever.
If you hate Amazon with all your heart, we get it. And, frankly, we wish we had our own billionaire-backers so we didn’t have to worry about how we are going to cover our costs from year-to-year. But we don’t. We do have an even better solution: become a member of Raging Chicken Press. You can become a member for as little as $5/month – and you’ll never have to spend a penny at Amazon! Our members are really what make all of our work possible. So, if you REALLY want to keep progressive, activist media going strong, become a member today.
Over the next few weeks we will be launching some additional fundraising campaigns. We hope you’ll contribute if you can and that you’ll help spread the word to family and friends. Here’s to the fight ahead!
