LifeSite needs you to take a stand against social media censorship
Today is Day 1 of our Fall fundraiser. These relatively brief but vital quarterly outreaches to LifeSite readers are crucial to sustaining our mission. Almost all LifeSite operating expenses are covered by donations received during these campaigns.
Your support today will allow us to continue to use this high quality news service to bring about cultural change on behalf of life, family and religious and speech freedoms.
As our Fall campaign begins, can I count on you to help us reach our $250,000 goal with a gift of even just $35 today? You can help us counter the liberal agenda which is now aggressively attempting to silence the conservative voice.
LifeSiteNews plays a distinct role in the cultural battle. Our culture desperately needs the truth, and we have the unique ability to use the power of the media to share this life-saving truth.
And, today, you have the opportunity to join us in a very special way by becoming a monthly supporter, or Sustainer, to our brand new Sustain Life initiative. A generous donor has offered to match the first donation of every new recurring pledge made by our readers - up to $20,000! Learn more about increasing the impact of your gift as a Sustainer by clicking here.
For some time now, conservative organizations and public figures around the globe have faced serious viewpoint discrimination on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google and others. Unfortunately LifeSiteNews has not been immune to this.
We have experienced a huge drop in Facebook reach and Google referrals over the last year due to censorship and viewpoint discrimination. This has increasingly impacted our fundraising efforts to sustain our mission.
During our Summer fundraising campaign we submitted this ad on the left to Facebook for approval, just like we have done in the past. But this and other similar ads were deemed “too offensive” and were not approved.
The ad on the right shows one approved by Facebook that Planned Parenthood ran at the same time that our ads were not approved. Is there a double standard here? We think so, too.
Censorship seems to be the latest attack on conservative views, and this is likely just the beginning.
Can we count on you for a gift of $200, $100, $50, or $35 today? You can ensure our reporting on developments related to life, family, faith and freedom continues at its current high-level even amidst censorship.
If you would like to give by phone or mail, please click on the donate link here, and choose either option at the bottom of the donate form.
As you can tell from reading many of our more recent reports, there has never been a more pressing time to restore our culture.
At LifeSite, we engage in this cultural battle head-on everyday with our pro-life and pro-family journalism. We are shedding light into the darkest areas of modernism and working each day to transform the culture.
We can only do this with your help.
With that big drop in our Facebook reach this year, our efforts to share our pro-life news and raise necessary funds during our campaigns have been greatly debilitated.
We are 100% reader-funded, and without the support of thousands of readers like you, LifeSite simply would not exist! Your gift of $200, $100, $50 or even $35 today will help maintain our news reporting for those who need to hear the truth.
Because of the forces that we are up against, many of our readers have committed to sustaining our mission on a monthly basis through our new Sustain Life program. If you would like to join our community of monthly Sustainers, please go to our website and choose the giving level of your choice. Or you may call Danielle Zuccaro, our Sustaining Donor Coordinator at 540-305-9698, and she can process your donation over the phone.
We cannot continue our mission to restore our culture through the power of the media without your support. Will you join forces with us to turn this cycle of censorship into a victory for Life? The future of family and freedom depends on our shared voice.
P.S. A generous donor has offered to match the first gift of every recurring gift pledged this Fall - up to $20,000! Monthly donors keep us going year-round so that we can face the pressing issues as they come up. Please consider becoming a monthly donor and double the impact of your first gift today!
