Thanks to supporter PD, whose $10 contribution yesterday brings our year-end fundraiser total (as of 6am Eastern this morning) to $792.50!

Our goal is $5,150, but that's not nearly as far away as it seems: We've got a "matching funds" supporter, GL, which means we only need to raise a total of $2,575 from among the rest of our (best guesstimate, across our web, email, and social media editions) 5,000 or so readers.

If you find our work of value, please return some of that value as financial support. Any amount helps, and we appreciate every dime. But I do have a couple of amounts, and a "mini-goal," in mind:

As of December 23, we'll have been bringing you the freedom movement's daily newspaper in this format for 19 years. Counting previous formats, we go back 30 years (we're the oldest daily email news/commentary roundup for libertarians). Please consider a $19 or $30 donation to help us get to the $1,000 mark TODAY. You can make that happen at:

Thanks in advance, and have a great day!

Yours in liberty,
