Giving Tuesday – 27 November 2018
Please make a Giving Tuesday donation to The Electronic Intifada right now to help us win more than $20,000 in extra funds to support our fearless reporting on Palestine in 2019.
It’s quick and easy, but your gift will make a difference all year long – and goes much further today.
Donations are welcome from any country and are tax-deductible for US taxpayers.
We’re counting on you to act right now to help hit our Giving Tuesday goals:
- We must raise $80,000 today in order to receive an extra $20,000 pledged by several generous individuals if we meet that target. That’s our most ambitious goal ever, so we really need you to help us get there.
Challenging the Israel lobby
You already know that The Electronic Intifada does indispensable work informing, educating and mobilizing people all over the world for justice in Palestine.
This year, we were the first to release excerpts from Al Jazeera’s censored undercover investigation on the US Israel lobby, and this month we made the whole film available to a worldwide audience.
We can only have this impact because we’re totally independent and refuse to bow to the type of Israel lobby pressure that succeeded in stopping the film from being aired.
But our impact and independence depend on you.
Your donation directly funds the work of our editors, writers, photographers and videomakers who report from Gaza’s Great March of Return to the frontlines of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement – and who provide The Electronic Intifada’s fearless analysis and in-depth investigations.
Included below are some of the powerful stories readers like you helped us publish this year. We’re really proud of this work, and you should be too!
Please help us get a running start this Giving Tuesday by donating right now.
Thank you from Team Electronic Intifada!
A big part of Giving Tuesday is getting as many people as possible to participate.
