The Emptywheel Two Million Visit Fundraiser

I’ve been so busy covering the Syria war effort and NSA spying that I almost missed it: on September 6, we will receive our two millionth visitor. To celebrate that fact — and to ensure we can keep doing this work — we’re going to have a week-long fundraiser. You can donate via PayPal here:

Or send snailmail to:

Emptywheel, LLC
P.O. Box 1673
Grand Rapids, Michigan 49501-1673

Thanks to all who have donated generously in the past — and for those who can support us now.

    Does that 2 million include the NSA hoovering the site and everyone’s info, or is it just the unclassified visitorship?

    Surely the 2 millionth Emptywheeler should get some kind of a door prize.
    A romantic weekend with DiFi or Mike Rogers, depending on one’s taste?

    Keep up the good work.

    Happy to contribute. Will do so again when the tax refund arrives. Wow – is THAT a satisfying thought: an IRS tax refund going to Emptywheel. Makes my day.

    Marcy, how you can keep cranking it out is an awesome benefit to us all. Wish I could add a couple of zeros. Can’t, but you are a crown jewel. Thanks for all your work. Love you. And, you said blowjob on TV! Rock on, woman.

    I don’t have a PayPal account and don’t want to sign up for one. Can we just send a check made out to the legal entity listed above or do we make it out to you directly?

  6. Casual Observer says:

    @GulfCoastPirate: You don’t need to create an account to pay via paypal. You can contribute as a guest, no account, just fill in the CC data as with any other online purchase. Hope this helps.

    A little something coming from a very appreciative lurker in Ann Arbor. I learn so much from this site. Thank you!

    Thank you, youse guys are goooood. My poor but heartfelt contribution is to be used for any purpose you wish, including more pajamas, timeline software, craft brews or soon-to-be-formerly-obscure bands (I’m still reveling in “Let’s Get Wrecked”, bmaz). Carry on!

  9. Tom in AZ says:

    @bmaz: Thanks for asking, bmaz. Things go. Some days better than others, and many have it way worse than me, so not complaining except about TPTB. I am here way more than I comment the last few months, and others are way more informed than me on a lot of this. I print and share this site several days a week. Being from here, you know the mental headwinds we’re up against, just trying to get simple facts out.

    Congrats, Marcy, Jim and bmaz. You guys are the best. I don’t know what I’d do without you.

    Can’t send much but will be sending something very soon.

    Thank you for your analyses. You are both cognizant and kind. I don’t do pay pal, etc. I’ll send a modest contribution ($20) thru snail mail, if you don’t mind. I’m hardly in the position for grand gestures.
