Our Writers Are Even More Amazing Than We Thought: Nomi Prins’ Challenge to Readers

Facts matter: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter. Support our nonprofit reporting. Subscribe to our print magazine.


nomi_pic.jpgWhen 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.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
