Day One: First Quarter Fundraiser


Paying for what you believe in

Hi, folks. It’s that time of year again where we come to you, hat in hand, asking for you to support the work we do here at Eclectablog. We work hard throughout the year to bring you news and analysis that you can’t get anywhere else. In return, four times a year for a week, we ask you to support us financially.

Your contributions allow us to pay our server bills, purchase new equipment to make our content more rich and interesting, and to help pay for the travel that we do to cover events both in Michigan and elsewhere.

Maybe you’re a teacher or nurse or auto worker, covered by a union. You know that here at Eclectablog, you’ll get up-to-date information about the attacks on labor and what labor unions are doing to fight back.

Maybe you’re outraged at what Republicans are doing to our state from taking over our aging manufacturing cities to ramming through hundreds of ideology-driven bills in the “inflamed duck” legislative session. You know that here at Eclectablog, you can keep track of their egregious overreach and find out ways to fight back.

Maybe you’re looking for a better understanding of national issues that impact your life for better or for worse. Here at Eclectablog you can get the analysis and framing that you need to better understand the issues so that you can discuss them with others.

Maybe you’re looking for unique photodocumentation of the events happening in Michigan and elsewhere. Here at Eclectablog, Anne Savage provides us with unique images and graphical memes, the quality of which is unparalleled by any other site.
