As you wade through the noise on social media, every once in a while you come across a story that makes you feel good. Inevitably, the story is about someone going out of their way to help someone else with no expectation of self-reward. These “feel good” stories stand out because so much of the world around us seems uncaring and even malevolent at times. When we see actual empathy and compassion, it restores our faith in our fellow humans, at least a little bit.
This, frankly, is a big part of why I am a Democrat. When you see efforts being made in terms of policy and laws and programs to help people who are less fortunate or who have little voice in the world around them, more often than not it is being led by Democrats.
Building compassionate communities is what we are about.
Here at Eclectablog, we celebrate these efforts and work hard to help put more Democrats in charge of things so that we can expand these communities wherever possible. We help make YOU more effective in doing this in YOUR community by giving you the information you need to be successful.
“It takes a village” may be a cliche but it’s also a truth. That’s why, several times a year, we come to you to ask for your financial support so that we can keep doing this work to build compassionate communities including the community we’ve built here at Eclectablog.
Please consider making a contribution and joining our growing community of supporters. One really terrific way to support us is to make a recurring monthly donation. You can choose your monthly giving level using this form:
There are two other ways to help, as well. First, you can use the handy PayPal form at the top of the right sidebar to make a one-time donation via Paypal in the amount of your choice. Second, you can send a check (which avoids Paypal taking out a percentage of your donation) to Chris Savage, P.O. Box 32, Dexter, MI 48130. Please make the check payable to “Eclectablog”.
If you are able to help support us financially, we would be most grateful. As Mitchell Robsinson put it, every dollar and voice counts. Thank you for your support.
P.S. Google, Twitter, and Facebook have changed their algorithms significantly in the past year meaning that fewer people are seeing our content in Google searches and on the various social media platforms. You can help us out by sharing our content far and wide and it won’t cost you a thing.
