LifeSiteNews needs your help

This excellent news service needs donations urgently.

They write:
The battle for our nations, our culture, and for our souls and the souls of our family and friends, is being fought in the media.

News agencies like ours are the strongest and most effective response to the crisis in our media – to the callous disregard for life, to the assaults on the natural family, to the depravity, sensationalism, dishonesty, nihilism, and disdain for even the most basic standards of decency that increasingly fills our airwaves and our newspapers, and consequently, our minds.

We are the resistance  - on your behalf and together with you.
I know that our entire staff shares this conviction with me. I wish that each and every one of you could meet and talk with them. They are a very special group of people.

No one who works for LifeSiteNews does so for financial gain or for personal glory, for no such thing is to be found in this work. They are involved in this work for one reason only – they believe in our mission. They are, without exception, God-fearing, humble, hard-working servants. They are doing this work for you, for your children and grandchildren, and for our culture.

And so we ask you to consider supporting during this Christmas campaign with whatever you are able to spare, even if it is only $5.

  1. So does C-Fam! Which is a regular source of much of LifeSiteNews' better material:

    "I regret to say that the Friday Fax Fall Fund Drive has raised only $22,000. In order to stay on track, we need to raise an additional $63,000 through the end of the year. We have a regular reader who is stationed in Afghanistan. He works out of a rock hut.

    We have regular readers in tiny African villages, dusty towns in Latin America.

    We also have readers at the Ford Foundation. And at International Planned Parenthood Federation. And at the UN Population Fund. And the US Congress. And in governments around the world.

    Little did I know that the Friday Fax would be the most important service that C-FAM provides to the global pro-life world. So, when I brag about the Friday Fax, I am really bragging about the work of my C-FAM colleagues.

    They provide the only weekly source of pro-life and pro-family news coming out of UN headquarters every week. It is so good, that our friends at Life News and Life Site News run almost every issue of the Friday Fax! And the Friday Fax is picked up by dozens of news sites around the world.

    The Friday Fax not only reports the news, it has gathered a global community of 250,000 subscribers. At the drop of an email, we can get 100,000 people to sign a petition to support the unborn child or to condemn assaults on the family. Two years ago, our petition for the unborn child garnered 650,000 names!

    It costs us $170,000 per year to make this thing run. That includes salaries, expensive New York rent, printing and postage, emailing expenses and much else."

    It would cost more in fees for me to make a bank transfer than I can afford to give them until February, but if one had a debit or credit card, or Paypal, or could write a USD cheque ...
