WE ARE up and positively speeding with a huge £2,196.50 arriving here on Monday to put a smile on our faces in these trying times.
Every single column I write reports some amazing and selfless support from among our readership. Today I can tell you that a fabulous £1,500 has been donated by a reader from Bradford.
Such a generous gesture not only eases our money worries but is a real morale booster to our hard-pressed staff and I am sure all of our supporters. Many thanks and not a penny will be wasted.
Our standing order donors have done well with £247.50.
My favourite reader in Canvey Island has donated yet another £100 which is gratefully received and my other favourite readers in Altrincham send in another £50 with best wishes to get well to Diane Abbott.
The Pontypridd branch of my favourite political party, the Communists, have collected £30 as they do so often and such solid support is acknowledged.
Our favourite Canadian reader has sent in £40 from Toronto and my favourite readers in Nuneaton, Warminster, Wolverhampton, Leeds and Haringey have also chipped in. Finally let me thank all those favourites of mine who have given generously over the weekend to keep this newspaper solvent.
However, the country is not so lucky and we are ready for change. Your confidence in our message must be reflected in support for the Fund. I am certain that the future is bright and that the future will be red just like our masthead.
You can’t buy a revolution, but you can help the only daily paper in Britain that’s fighting for one by donating to the FIGHTING FUND. The Morning Star is unique, as a lone socialist voice in a sea of neoliberal media. We offer a platform for those who would otherwise never be listened to, coverage of stories that would otherwise be buried. The rich don’t like us, and they don’t advertise with us, so we rely on you, our readers and friends. With a regular donation to our monthly Fighting Fund, we can continue to thumb our noses at the fat cats and tell truth to power. Donate today and make a regular contribution...
