Please give to spiked this Christmas
Despite the best efforts of green-tinted Scrooges, this is still a season of giving – and we hope you will give to spiked’s fund-drive.
When you make your Christmas gift list, please remember to include spiked!
In order to remain great in 2008, spiked needs to raise £10,000 before the end of this year. And there are only 17 days left.
We launched a fund-drive in February. We announced that we needed to raise £40,000 to continue making sense of the world (and some trouble) in the coming period.
And thanks to YOU, our generous readers, we are more than three-quarters of the way there. The £30,000-plus that you have donated so far has helped to keep spiked alive and kicking (against the pricks).
Now we need to raise the remaining £10,000. And, dear reader, what better time than Christmas to make the donation to spiked that I know you’ve been thinking about all year?
Despite the best efforts of modern-day Scrooges – who view everything from pressies under the tree to the spectacular lights on Oxford Street as Grimes Against Humanity – Christmas is still a time of giving.
Sad activists describe PlayStations as a ‘toxic burden’, but that won’t stop loving parents buying one for the kids. Killjoy scientists claim our Christmas dinners will leave a ‘carbon footprint’, but that won’t stop us tucking in to a festive family feast.
And in the un-crushable spirit of giving, I hope you will give to spiked the gift of money.
In 2008, we want to publish more cutting-edge daily commentary, push forward our monthly review of books and develop our coverage of international affairs – and we can only do these things with your help.
Please help us to raise the outstanding £10,000 by putting your money where your mouse is, and donating to spiked TODAY. Regular monthly donations are best, as they allow us to plan ahead: your gift will not just be for Christmas, but for life! One-off donations are warmly welcomed too.
