Journalists Need Your Help to Report From the Front Lines

| Fri Dec. 16, 2011 6:00 AM EST

This has been a pretty busy year at Mother Jones: covering the Occupy protests, the Wisconsin sit-ins, the Arab Spring, human rights in trouble spots around the world, and a whole lot more. As you know, I write about this stuff from the comfort of my living room, but MoJo's other reporters don't. They're out there on the front lines, producing first-person accounts of the stories that progressives care about most.

But it's expensive doing that, and next year is probably going to be more expensive yet. For starters, it's an election year, and we're planning to spend a lot of time investigating dark money and its increasing importance on politics in a post-Citizens United world. It's an important topic, but it's not a cheap one to dig into.

So with the end of the year coming up, we're making one last fundraising push. If you appreciate our brand of reality-based journalism, please help us out by donating a few dollars to the Mother Jones Investigative Fund today. Even $5 or $10 makes a difference, and $50 or $100 makes an even bigger difference. Plus, your donation is tax deductible. So please take a minute right now to give via credit card or PayPal.

The PayPal link is here.

The work we do here costs a lot to produce, and we can't do it without help from our readers to help fund it. From me personally, and from all of us at MoJo, thanks in advance for whatever help you can afford to give.
