3 Days Left: Can you help?
I’m at a complete loss for what to do!
Readership of our daily news is higher than it has ever been, yet we are struggling to reach our end of year campaign goal - the bare minimum we need to sustain our mission going into 2019!
These are funds that we desperately need. But with only 3 DAYS to go, we still have an overwhelming $170,928 left to raise!
To be honest, I just can’t believe it. We’ve had millions of people visit our website just since we launched our Christmas campaign two weeks ago. Of those millions of people, we need just a fraction of 1% to step up and decide that professional, life-affirming, and uncompromising pro-life and pro-family news reporting is worth something...even if it’s just $5.
But though I’m tempted to give in to discouragement, I won’t do that. Instead, I know that there is only ONE THING left to do.
What’s that? TRUST.
Firstly, trust Divine Providence. Whatever the result of this campaign, whether we make our goal or we don’t, we know that this is precisely what God has determined that we need to do our work. And I truly mean that. Total abandonment to Providence isn’t easy, especially at difficult times like this, but it has always been a core guiding principle at LifeSiteNews.
Secondly, trust in our readers. The fact is, you courageous folks have always come through in the past, often going way above and beyond to provide us with the financial support that is essential to continue this life-and-family news reporting.
At the same time, there’s no point beating around the bush. While this campaign started out with much promise given our high levels of readership and reader-engagement, we have dramatically lost momentum in the past few days.
Maybe it’s because many people are preparing for Christmas. Or maybe it’s simply because we haven’t yet effectively communicated the urgency of our need.
And so I feel like I have to be totally blunt: we must reach our goal to continue reporting at our current level, to fill the demand for our news service from you, our readers.
I am not exaggerating when I say that LifeSiteNews literally depends upon the success of this campaign to keep going.
And so now, with only 3 days remaining, I need you to drop everything you are doing and make a donation right now.
I hope you don’t think our goal is unattainable. Far from it!
It’s true, we have never been this far from our goal so late in the game. But with hundreds of thousands of people coming to our site each day, all it will take is for you to make the decision today to help keep us operating.
We place the success of this campaign in God’s hands, and in your hands.
P.S. Remember that in the United States, LifeSiteNews is a 501(c)3 organization, and donations are tax-deductible.
