News

Dear LifeSiteNews Readers,

Oops! I made a large mathematical error in yesterday’s report about the amount LifeSiteNews is still short in its fundraising campaign. I’ve never been good at math, although in this case I was probably writing the report way too late the night before. If you added up the figures we gave, you would have noticed the error.

We are actually, ahem, $253,587 rather than $165,413 short of our goal of $300,000 to operate this fantastic life, family and culture news service and to pay for new website development and urgently needed extra staff.

That does not include the cost of many other exciting things that we very much want to do and which we KNOW we can do very well and then have an even bigger impact on events in the United States, Canada and elsewhere.

Let us help you to turn the tide in the great culture war that is raging around the world. We URGENTLY need your financial support in order to do this work that is God’s work, not ours.

We encourage US donors to contribute before the end of the year in order to receive their 2007 tax deductible receipt.

And please PRAY FOR US every day that we may receive the support needed and be constantly inspired and strengthened to do our job well. Those prayers are crucial.
  
RESPONSES FROM READERS

We have been receiving many encouraging comments by email and telephone. Some have also given us great suggestions about how to go about raising funds. They are telling us to boldly continue asking for support since LifeSiteNews is worthy of readers’ support.

Here are some of the comments. We think you will find them interesting reading:
