Helping Out


A friend of mine with a son serving in Afghanistan emailed yesterday about a group that raises money to provide injured service members at military hospitals with voice-controlled laptop computers and related technology that helps their recovery.  It’s a terrific organization that’s holding a fundraising drive right now, and I just kicked in for a hundred dollars.  If it sounds like a good cause to you too, just click here.  They accept donations in any amount.

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
