From Earth First! Journal:
UPDATE: A huge thank you to everyone who donated yesterday! The response was incredible and has helped tremendously. All told, we raised over $4,000 in one day, which is just amazing. Thank you all. We also found some people interested in investing in the property. We met with the property owner yesterday, and though we are not sure whether or not we’ll be able to buy the house, it is now a possibility. Your donations are still helpful as we figure this out: If we are able to buy the house, money raised will go either towards purchasing it or repairing it (anyone who has visited our office can tell you it’s not in prime condition); if we aren’t, it will go towards the next Journal home.
The house that the Earth First! Journal Collective has been renting for about four years in Lake Worth, Florida, has been sold, and we are now in dire need of money to make a counter offer by 4:00 PM today! With enough room and yard space for short and long termers to live and work, which is rare in this city and especially at this price, this house is ideal, and we really want to keep it. Unfortunately, we need at least 80,000 dollars to buy the property. If you have ever thought about making a donation of any amount to the Journal, now is the time!
If it turns out that our counter offer isn’t enough or we have to leave for any other reason, any money we raise now will go towards helping current Collective members transition to a new office situation and find storage space for journals, computers, and other supplies.
We hate to have to ask for so much, and realize that money is tight for a lot of people this time of year, but any contribution you make today could help the Journal thrive for years to come.
If you are planning on making a large donation, please contact us first! If you have questions about donating to this cause, feel free to contact us. Email: collective[at]earthfirstjournal.org. Phone: (561) 320-3840
