Why I Do The Work, And Why I Need Your Help

Philip Weiss on

Thank you for making Mondoweiss a tool for liberation beyond what I imagined. When I look at this year’s stories–and what we can achieve for the future–I am proud to ask for your help.

Why Mondoweiss: Sharp and insightful analysis sorely lacking in mainstream media

Susan Abulhawa on

Bestselling Palestinian writer and activist Susan Abulhawa: “Mondoweiss has been a valuable English-language publication in the struggle against Israeli apartheid. Their writers and editors reliably and consistently cover the injustices that Israel would like to go unnoticed — and deliver the daily traumas and triumphs of Palestinians in the homeland and diaspora. For these reasons and more, Mondoweiss has become an important and trusted resource. I’m happy to support their work and hope you will too.”

Why Mondoweiss: It’s a lifeboat in the storm of my harsh reality

Dareen Tatour on

To those who lead Mondoweiss—and you who support the work—freedom is not merely a call or a word said, but a reality. Every day I feel that in working with Mondoweiss, I hold an immense responsibility to contribute to the continuation of this site. Please join me in supporting Mondoweiss — an institution that supports Palestinian writers like me both morally and practically.

My own history shows that Mondoweiss converts people. Give today to help that work continue!

Long before I ever imagined joining the Mondoweiss team, I was part of its target audience. And my story — a journey to solidarity over just a few years — is evidence that accurate news, day in and day out, can convert people and help move the world to the necessary tipping point. Please give today to keep Mondoweiss delivering valuable information and reaching new audiences. The change you seek for Palestine depends on your support.

Thank you for meeting the challenge!

Adam Horowitz on

Earlier this week we presented you, our readers, with a challenge. Five donors were offering up to $3,000 to match every gift we received over 24 hours and I have GREAT news – not only did you meet the match, your generosity and enthusiasm exceeded it! To be specific, we raised over $7,500 in 24 hours, bringing our total to over $10,000 after the match. Thank you!

The Mondoweiss community has stepped up, and we thank you!

Philip Weiss and Adam Horowitz on

Just a few weeks ago, Mondoweiss launched a $60,000 summer fund drive to prepare for the upcoming challenges facing accurate, responsible journalism about Palestine and the movement for its liberation. Thanks to hundreds of generous supporters, we have met and surpassed our goal for this campaign. As we enter our new fiscal year September 1, we have enough resources to tackle the mission that drives us: reporting the truth from Palestine and Israel with as much detail, scope and context as possible to as many people as possible around the world.

Without your help, we lose some of our punch

Adam Horowitz on

We hear regularly from people like you, who value the reporting and analysis provided by Mondoweiss. But this summer, as we push to raise the funds for more news, there are hundreds of past supporters we haven’t heard from yet. If you give $25 or more by August 10, we’ll send you a Mondoweiss poster showcasing the work of talented Palestinian photojournalists. Just think: if everyone who reads Mondoweiss regularly could give today, the investment would total tens of thousands of dollars. And all the gifts we receive in response to this message will go directly toward paying Palestinian reporters, photographers and videographers.

‘I Will Never Forget These Images’

Akram Al-Wa'ra on

Akram Al-Wa’ra, Mondoweiss correspondent, writes: “I have witnessed many atrocities in my life here in Palestine. I have seen my friends shot and killed during protests and my family members arrested and thrown in jail. But nothing prepared me for what I witnessed in the footage from Gaza. If it wasn’t for organizations like Mondoweiss, many of these images would never be seen by the international community. My people need Mondoweiss to thrive and grow—please help now.”

We need just twelve more people — can you be one?

While marchers can’t breathe, people like you are making sure their stories spread around the world

Philip Weiss on

While demonstrators are at the mercy of an army that has proved conscienceless, people like you are investing to ensure word gets out. The support of hundreds of people has allowed Mondoweiss to provide images, reporting and commentary on the Great March of Return. Our current fundraising campaign has already successfully met two challenges of major longtime supporters–the second of which was fully matched within three days. So yet another donor has now stepped up to keep the momentum for the rest of April. He will give a $60 match for each of the next 25 people who commit to a new recurring donation at any level. Please sign up now to multiply your impact as an investor in truthful reporting from Palestine.

‘Mondoweiss Mondays’ has really taken off — and check out the new match to multiply your impact

Tova Perlmutter on

In the past two weeks we’re proud that Mondoweiss has delivered both on-the-ground coverage and insightful commentary to supplement the incomplete and biased reporting by mainstream media. Readers have shown they appreciate our work; donations have poured in. In order to keep the momentum going, a generous donor has pledged $50 for each of the next ten people who commit to a new recurring donation at any level. By signing up now to sustain truthful reporting from Palestine, you can multiply the impact of your support.

Why we are asking for your help now–to keep the news flowing

Tova Perlmutter on

You already know that last Friday in Palestine tens of thousands of dedicated Palestinians made their way to the border between Gaza and Israel, and that the Israeli armed forces used snipers to pick off individuals and intimidate nonviolent protesters. Mondoweiss reported from the Great March of Return, and will continue to provide photo, video and oral documentation of this historic statement of sumud—and the atrocities in response. We truly believe that our work reporting on this systematic violence is a vital tool in fighting against it and building a better future. If you agree that truth-telling is mighty and necessary, please consider signing up for a regular contribution to be processed every other week.
