$201,000 – Thank you!

We finally have all the numbers tallied: the 2007 PWW Fund Drive went $1,000 over its goal of $200,000 — the most we’ve raised in years. And more money is coming in, giving us a few thousand dollars to jumpstart the 2008 drive.

States that had not met their goal in years, like New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and Maine, made a big turnaround this year, bringing in 108, 145 and 210 percent of their goals respectively. Most states met or exceeded their goals, and of those that didn’t, many hit more than 90 percent.

Next we can finish our drive for 1,000 new subscribers by Jan. 31. We are already more than halfway there.

You made sure the PWW remained financially viable because you know its value in the struggle for peace, democracy, equality and socialism. Help us make sure that at least 500 more people read it every week in 2008. Consider getting a friend to subscribe, or buying them a subscription!

This is a year that may go down in history as the time when the American people beat back the ultra right, and that is more likely with each new reader of the PWW.

In solidarity, Teresa Albano, Editor

P.S.: All donors should have received Thank You notes and gifts by now—if you have not, please e-mail subs at symbol pww dot org.
