In the last week of August we launched an urgent appeal over two weeks
, to raise a required $2,300. At that link you can read about that appeal and its results. We now have launched our Mathaba September (Al-Fateh) Appeal
. We need to raise $3,750 for the remaining three weeks of September so that we can provide full service levels.
Our late August appeal resulted in a great response by
19 20 people around the world
, who gave whatever they could afford, perhaps more, perhaps less, and allowed half of the target to be raised in that first week, as well as offers of equipment which are being followed up.
That one week was also the exact amount of our total running cost budget for full service levels, which if continued every week, would allow us to continue at full capacity. That is when we can really see the influence of Mathaba upon current events, news media, and the world of positive change.
But the only way that is going to happen that we receive sufficient help each day and each week, is if a different 19 or so people again make contributions this week, some contributions made could not doubt only be made once a year, or every few months.
To carry on this work, in spite of the wishes of the enemies of freedom, 24/7, with a high level of news coverage, it'd therefore need roughly 4 times 20 = 80 people supporting us on a regular basis each month. That is surely not a lot to ask for out of our half million monthly readers (in a bad month) and over a million (in a good month).
Please don't leave it all on the shoulders of a few people to contribute without joining them with your own efforts. It only takes whatever you can afford
. If you are reading this on a computer, you can probably afford at least a few dollars, by making some sacrifice. Cut back on coke, coffee, food. We do, so you can too!
I hope you will continue to prove to me that all the work I've done for the past 12 years is appreciated
and should continue. If so, please read the below, and the world will thank you.Cash Payments
We've now published a way that you can send cash payments, even of a few dollars in almost any popular currency. Please see here for details
. We hope that this will allow those of you to send a contribution who cannot (or don't wish to) use banks, credit cards or PayPal. You can send anything from $1 upwards, it all helps and is appreciated.
Please make your donations
, each of which will be acknowledged and subtracted from the amount. We need to sustain the huge audience we have built up or it will start to dwindle if we cannot produce more and regular news, special analysis and services to Mathaba activists.
Those who are paying a monthly (approx $10) Mathaba Gold subscription
, not only receive added benefits at the Mathaba Gold site
, but are a very important component in making sure that we can meet essential costs each month. Everyone who makes a donation is awarded Mathaba Membership and thus access to either the Mathaba Silver or Gold site
Please donate and/or subscribe
or make a cash payment
to help us continue news production.
