IMPORTANT: Our friends at @CommonDreams need our help

Dear Common Dreamer,

Imagine if you got all your daily news from the corporate media... what would you know?

Would you know how the failure to confront the coming crisis of global warming has brought us to critical climate tipping points?

Would you know that the ‘debt crisis’ is manufactured by ‘disaster capitalists’ who want to destroy the social net and privatize our remaining commons?

Would you know how the flood of campaign cash resulting from Citizens United is not only poisoning our democracy -- but enriching the corporate media?

Would you know of the growing movement around the world to stand up against the banksters and their draconian ‘austerity’ measures?

Of course not.

If you got all your daily news from the corporate media you’d be a lousy, ill-informed citizen of this planet. But you would be one hell of a consumer.

Common Dreams turns 15 years old this fall. We began because we recognized the power of using the Internet to build a new media model. An independent, not-for-profit media bringing you the news that matters.

We are proud of what we've accomplished over the past 15 years on a shoestring budget, a small but dedicated staff -- and an amazing network of supporters.

You can count on us to be here for you.

But you are what makes this possible. You are what makes us strong.

We must raise $35,000 more in this fundraising campaign. If bringing you the news that matters is important to you, then we need you to help sustain our work.

Can we count on you to keep us moving forward?

We can’t do it without you!

In gratitude,

Craig Brown
for the whole Common Dreams team
