The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser
All Hands On Deck!

804 words

There’s never a good time for a pandemic or an economic crisis, but the current convergence of catastrophes could not have come at a worse time: close on the heels of losing yet another payment processor and just before we had to lay out significant capital for some much-needed work on our website. We are completely redesigning our webzine and spinning off a separate e-store in celebration of our 10th anniversary, which is coming up on June 11th.

We usually start our annual fundraiser on June 11th, but when we saw what a long road we had ahead of us, we started early. Counter-Currents needs to raise $150,000 this year. Since our last update, we have received 41 donations totaling $5,189.97. This brings our total to 189 donations and $18,539.02. I want to thank everyone who has answered our call so far.

Are we going to make it? Remember, Counter-Currents was born in 2010, in the last recession. I have had to lay off one employee, but Counter-Currents will always be here in some form, even if it is reduced to a solo hobby project.

But that would be a terrible shame, because, as I argued in “How Coronavirus Will Change the World [1],” the current crisis is a beautiful argument for National Populism. Beyond that, the Ahmaud Arbery hoax [2] promises more Black Lives Matter agitation, which will awaken whites as did the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown hoaxes.

More people are receptive to our message than ever before, which is reflected in record high web traffic. So please, donate today, to keep Counter-Currents strong and in the fight, when we are needed most. There are several ways you can help out.

Credit Cards

Currently we are unable to take credit card donations except through a site called Entropy. Entropy is a site that collects “paid chat” or “superchat” donations for livestreamers. But they can take donations any time.

Just go to our Entropy page [3] and select “send paid chat.” Entropy allows you to donate any amount from $3 and up.

If you want to leave a question or comment, they will be read and discussed on the next Counter-Currents Radio livestream, which air on Sundays noon PST/3pm EST on dlive: https://dlive.tv/Counter-Currents [4]

Money Transfers

If your bank does free money transfers to other banks in the US, please contact [email protected] [5].

Gift Cards

Gift cards are a useful way to make donations. Gift cards are available with all the major credit cards as well as from major retailers. You can either send gift cards as donations (either electronically or through the mail) or you can use them to make donations. Simply buy a prepaid credit card and click here  [6]to use it. If you can find a place that sells gift cards for cash, they are as anonymous as sending cash and much safer.

Checks and Money Orders

[7]Sometimes the old ways are best. The least “de-platformable” way to send donations to Counter-Currents is to put a check or money order in the mail. Simply print and complete the Word [8] or PDF [9] donation form and mail it to:

Counter-Currents Publishing, Ltd.
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
USA
[email protected]

Thank you, Boomers, for keeping your checkbooks, envelopes, and stamps. There are youngsters reading this site who have never written a check or put a letter in the mail.

Bill Payment Services

If you wish to make monthly donations by mail, see if your bank has a bill payment service. Then all you need to do is set up a monthly check to be dispatched by mail to our PO box. This check can be made out to Counter-Currents or to Greg Johnson. After the initial bother of setting it up, you never have to think about it again.

Crypto-Currencies

In addition to old-fashioned paper donations, those new-fangled crypto-currencies are a good way to circumvent censorious credit card corporations.

The Counter-Currents Foundation

Note: Donations to Counter-Currents Publishing are not tax deductible. We do, however, have a 501c3 tax-exempt educational corporation called The Counter-Currents Foundation. If you want to make a tax-deductible gift, please email me at [email protected] [12]. You can send donations by mail to:

The Counter-Currents Foundation
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
USA

Remember Us in Your Will

Finally, we would like to broach a very delicate topic: your will. If you are planning your estate, please think about how you can continue helping the cause even after you are gone. The essay Majority Estate Planning [13]” contains many helpful suggestions.

Remember: those who fight for the Golden Age live in it today.

Thank you again for your loyal readership and generous support.
