I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few weeks ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $1,500 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight July 1st.
Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support, if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle.
And there are those who are interested in seeing us fail. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.
