When 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.
