Our Writers Are Even More Amazing Than We Thought: Nomi Prins’ Challenge to Readers

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


nomi_pic.jpgWhen we asked
readers to help save our D.C. investigative crew after some
major funders pulled out, one of our freelancers, Nomi Prins–a former
Goldman Sachs managing director turned ace finance reporter–offered to put up the $1,000 fee for her most recent story
as a challenge grant. Yes, just like on public radio: We won’t hold
the blog hostage for 20 minutes every hour to bludgeon you into
giving, but we sure don’t want to leave this money on the table.
Can you help? It’s incredibly easy, just follow this link. If you
give $45 or more, we throw in a subscription to the magazine. Please help Nomi help us out. And then go read
her story on the financial crisis. It will make you weep.

UPDATE: Now you can give via PayPal! Thanks to those of you who have already given, it means a ton. We’ll let you know whether we make the match.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
