Why Fund 911truth.org?
Dear 9/11 Truth Advocates,
As 2009 arrives, 911Truth.org wishes you all the best, and extends our gratitude to each of you for your persistent courage and dedication to hard truths!
For nearly five years, 911Truth.org has served as your portal to reliable information about 9/11, its precedents and consequences, as an umbrella for hundreds of local truth activism groups, as a catalyst for national campaigns and new 9/11 truth special interest groups, and so much more. We are at a very critical juncture right now, as monthly donation pledges total about $500. We need to raise $15,000 for this first quarter of 2009 if we are to continue to provide these valuable services.
As we enter a new year, with a new administration coming into office, we are excited to continue this important work with some new opportunities--though admittedly, significant challenges remaining--in front of us!
Having witnessed the international reaction to the election of Barack Obama, we believe that a new dawn in political responsibility may be approaching. We therefore encourage the 9/11 community to take an optimistic, and persistent, educational approach to the new administration, one which will speak truth to power in a new relationship based on positive expectations of honesty and good faith. The approach we envisage continues to be based on the expectation that individuals within the United States Government and its citizens, once educated about 9/11, will recognize that only strength and respect would flow from a thorough and complete accounting. Further, this would lead to correcting the enormous fallout (both domestically and internationally) from this horrendous deed that is such a stain on US history. Only when real integrity has been ensconced in our leadership--which must be held to account by the people it represents--will the US, and indeed the world, have a chance to become whole again.
Thus, we intend to work with other organizations to continue to press for this integrity. Of course, we don't yet know what specific course will finally be successful -- perhaps a special prosecutor within the U.S., perhaps it will require an international war crimes tribunal or criminal court, or maybe some other mechanism not yet considered will be necessary. So we must explore every opportunity and pursue those with merit, while drawing on the wisdom, creativity and dedication of compassionate, truth-loving people everywhere if we are to achieve these lofty goals. In 2009, we intend to do just that.
But we can't do it without your help.
We receive no foundation or grant funding, so we're supported solely by contributions from you, and as we've always said, we truly appreciate and value every penny--we work very hard with very little, thanks to the dedication and mostly volunteer efforts of some very fine people. And while we know that times are financially tough for many people right now, this important work must nonetheless continue. We simply can't do it without your help. We are asking you to make a contribution right now, to take your movement into 2009 with a working budget of $15,000 for the first quarter. Below you'll find a few offerings of thank you gifts for contributions made in the next two weeks.
What projects are we looking at undertaking immediately in 2009? Here are a few, and you can see why we say we're excited about opportunities:
We need your help to make these projects happen! Please make a donation now, or commit to a monthly donation. We have accomplished much in these five years, yet much remains to finish the work of bringing complete and open recognition to this issue, and now is certainly not the time to have to end our efforts. We ask you to help us, as generously as possible, to continue that work. Thank you!
And with every contribution, our very sincere thanks!
With our best wishes for a healthy, courageous, active new year filled with real change, and our genuine thanks for your work,
