Thank You from Fair Observer

A special thanks from the team.

Dear Friends,

We can’t thank you enough! We are humbled by all the support we’ve received since our Kickstarter Launch last week. Messages of encouragement have been pouring in. Volunteers have been reaching out to campaign for us.

In short, you have pledged, you have spread the word, you have lent a helping hand and you have inspired us.

Our Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign has momentum and we will turn our snowball of support into an avalanche. In other words, we will continue to reach for the stars. 

In the coming days we will share our “Stretch Goals,” that describe what we can achieve with different amounts of cash. We are also speaking with hundreds of people around the world. 

In the United States, our Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Atul Singh, is currently on a coast to coast journey to find out what issues matter to the common man in this vast country. The #MakingSense tour is an effort to educate ourselves and begin a conversation with you that is up close and personal. 

Keep a close eye on us and tell us what we are doing right and what we are not. We have come this far thanks to your help, and we need you to go further.

With much gratitude,

The Fair Observer Team

We rely on your support for our independence, diversity and quality.

For more than 10 years, Fair Observer has been free, fair and independent. No billionaire owns us, no advertisers control us. We are a reader-supported nonprofit. Unlike many other publications, we keep our content free for readers regardless of where they live or whether they can afford to pay. We have no paywalls and no ads.

In the post-truth era of fake news, echo chambers and filter bubbles, we publish a plurality of perspectives from around the world. Anyone can publish with us, but everyone goes through a rigorous editorial process. So, you get fact-checked, well-reasoned content instead of noise.

We publish 2,500+ voices from 90+ countries. We also conduct education and training programs on subjects ranging from digital media and journalism to writing and critical thinking. This doesn’t come cheap. Servers, editors, trainers and web developers cost money.
Please consider supporting us on a regular basis as a recurring donor or a sustaining member.
