Folks, if you haven’t noticed yet, we’re hosting a donations drive here at the ol’ shawneemissionpost.com.
And what we’re imploring you, our loyal readers, to do is this: Help us keep shawneemissionpost.com providing northeast Johnson County with truly local reporting by making a small financial contribution to the site.
We’re very lucky to have a group of more than 100 local businesses who support us through their ads and sponsorships each month. But to ensure that we can become a sustainable business for years to come, we need to diversify our revenue base. And that’s why we’re making this appeal for the first time in our history.
If you haven’t done so yet, we’re asking you to join all of the readers who have already stepped up and make a donation. Since starting the campaign this weekend, we’ve raised nearly $5,000.
That’s a huge help — but we’ve got a long ways to go to reach our goal of $30,000 by the end of this month.
If you value the news and information we’ve provided free of charge each weekday for the past five years — more than 6,700 posts in total — we hope you’ll show it by making a donation. (If the warm fuzzies of helping a local small business out aren’t motivation enough, be sure to check out the fantastics gifts we’re offering at various donation levels).
And remember: Everyone who donates at least $10 (and answers a quick trivia question) will be entered into a drawing for a $150 gift card to Story at the Village Shops.
Thanks to all of you have pitching in so far — we’ve been blown away by the huge show of support in these first few days!
For those who haven’t donated yet, visit Supportshawneemissionpost.com today — it just takes a minute.
