As you all know too well, it’s election season, and politicians everywhere are making promises in order to secure your vote. Rewire is also running in an election of sorts—one in which everyone wins.
You read that right: Everyone wins.
Every month, CREDO Mobile, the country’s only progressive phone company, allocates $150,000 to be given away to three nonprofit groups. How much of the donation each group gets depends on the number of votes they receive. And we are asking you to take a moment to vote for Rewire.
Rewire is an independent nonprofit online publication dedicated solely to publishing the best possible news, analysis, commentary, investigative research, and multimedia work on reproductive and sexual health, rights, and justice every day. We do so with a relatively small team of incredibly dedicated editors and reporters; tech, communications, and social media experts; multimedia professionals; and razor-sharp financial and management staff who work to ensure we spend every dollar wisely. We also have a dedicated board of directors who oversee our work.
Because we don’t take advertising dollars, we rely on the generous support of private foundations and small donations from readers like you.
But right now, we are not asking you for money. We are asking you for your vote. Today.
The deadline for voting for the CREDO grant is August 31, less than a week away. While all three of the groups selected by CREDO for this month’s donations will get a share of the generous funding, the amount rests on the number of voters each group garners.
Money from the CREDO grant will go directly to support the excellent reporting, commentary, and analysis you’ve come to expect from us, and which we pledge to provide every day. That’s our promise.
We are asking that you vote for us, now, so that we can maximize the funding available to support our work.
I can’t thank you enough for helping us in this effort.
