When a Michigan story goes national — like the bizarre sexcapades of moralizing Tea Partiers Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat — you can bet Eclectablog has been on the case for a while.
When a corporate front group launches a sneak attack to cut wages, we’re there.
When Donald Trump takes on auto workers with perfect distillation of how billionaires like him destroy the middle class, it’s on Eclectablog — along with the truth about Trump’s dog whistled, conservative appeals that much of the media is afraid to name and shame.
The middle class needs Eclectablog and Eclectablog needs you.
A few times a year we ask you to contribute what you can to help keep us going and growing. This is one of those times. Give a little and in exchange you get Chris Savage, Anne Savage and the rest of the Eclectablog team working for you overtime bringing you the stories, context and voices that are too often shut out of corporate media.
There are three ways you can help financially.
First, you can make your donation using the PayPal form at the top of the right sidebar. You can choose which level of support you wish to give us from the dropdown box or choose a different level if you wish by using the “Other amount” box. The default is $60 which is basically $1 per week after the fees are taken out, a pretty good value.
Or you can wait until the TinyPass pop-up pops up (every tenth click on the site) and donate that way. If you do that, the popups will go away as long as you have cookies enabled. Like with the Paypal form, the default amounts for annual or monthly donations can be adjusted to whatever you wish them to be. They are currently set to be around $1 per week. Again, it’s a great value.
Finally, if you would prefer to send a check, send Chris an email and I’ll give you the address. This is the most beneficial way for us because it avoids the Paypal and Tinypass fees that are taken from contributions to the site.
If you work for an organization that would like to support our efforts by placing an ad, click HERE for our ad rates and more information.
By the way, you don’t have to be an organization to run an ad. Maybe you’d like to surprise your favorite progressive with a birthday message on Eclectablog or help promote your favorite group. Again, click HERE for more info.
If you cannot afford to support us financially, there are a couple of other ways that you can still help.
First, you can do you Amazon shopping through the Eclectablog page. Use the search box toward the top of the right sidebar to start your shopping. You can search for products directly from that box or click the “View more products on Amazon.com” link to go to the main Amazon page. If you order via that link, we get 4-6% of the cost of your purchase and it doesn’t cost you a thing.
Second, please share our content on your Facebook page or other social media like Twitter, Reddit, etc. Put a “Like” on our Facebook page and click the “Invite friends” button and encourage your friends to like us, too.
Thanks so much for your continued support,
LOLGOP, Chris, Anne, Amy, Tony, Emma, Judy, John, and Charles
