Now that we’re done with our post-election scream and our Pushcart nominations, it’s time for us to begin decelerating for the holidays. But don’t worry, we still have a few goodies before the year’s out, as well as some big plans for 2017. Some of this will involve bringing on some new contributors and expanding areas where we’ve lingered for a while. We’re really excited about what’s coming, and we’re proud that we’re still able to give it to you all for free.
Which means – times being what they are – that occasionally we have to ask for your help to keep Radius running. This is one of those times.
We have set ourselves a goal to raise $300 by December 20th. This is a modest amount, but we really don’t need much. Just enough to help pay for our hosting, and to pay for software and apps to help make our site and its social media presence better.
You can make donations by visiting our Gumroad site, or by clicking the “Donate to Radius” button on the top right-hand corner of the website.
And that’s it: No song and dance, no groveling (well, OK. Maybe a little groveling.) If anyone has suggestions for cool perks for donations, we’re open to that. But mostly,we’re going into this end-of-the-year fund-raising effort as honestly and straightforwardly as possible. Even a $5 or $10 donation will go a long way toward keeping Radius online.
Again: That’s $300 by Dec. 20. We think it’s a reachable goal. But only if you help.
