Final Appeal for Donations to Support My Work on Guantánamo: $1900 Still Needed

Please support my work!

UPDATE September 23: My fundraising week is over, but I’m still hoping to raise $1650 of my $2500 target. If you can help out at all, it will be very much appreciated.

Dear friends and supporters,

Normal service will resume next week, but in the meantime I’m still focusing on securing a financial basis for my work on Guantánamo and related issues for the next three months, and putting out a last shout for donations.

I’m enormously grateful to the 12 friends and supporters who have donated $600 (£350) to support my work for the next three months, but I’m still a long way from my target of $2500 (£1500). If you can help me to raise the $1900 (£1150) I’m still looking for, I’ll be very grateful.

As I have explained earlier in this fundraising week, the majority of my work is unpaid — or, rather, is reader-supported — so most of my articles, as well as the maintenance of this website and the social media associated with it, and most of my media appearances, are only possible with your support. If you can help out at all, please click on the “Donate” button above to donate via PayPal (and I should add that you don’t need to be a PayPal member to use PayPal).

All contributions to support my work are welcome, whether it’s $25, $100 or $500 — or, of course, the equivalent in pounds sterling or any other currency. You can also make a recurring payment on a monthly basis by ticking the box marked, “Make This Recurring (Monthly),” and if you are able to do so, it would be very much appreciated.

Quarterly Fundraiser Day 3: Still Seeking $2200 to Support My Guantánamo Work

Please support my work!

UPDATE September 23: My fundraising week is over, but I’m still hoping to raise $1650 of my $2500 target. If you can help out at all, it will be very much appreciated.

Dear friends and supporters,

Every three months, I ask you, if you can, to donate to support my research, writing and campaigning on Guantánamo and related issues. This has been the focus of my working life for the last eight and a half years, and, in order to focus on the need to close Guantánamo, to return to the rule of law, and to hold accountable those who authorized the many crimes of the “war on terror,” most of my work is independent and reader-supported. I don’t have an institution or a think-tank behind me, and although I do some mainstream media work I don’t generally pursue it because the mainstream media is generally only interested in Guantánamo in fits and starts.

As a result, I need your support to enable me to keep working as I do. Since launching my quarterly fundraiser on Monday, nine friends have donated $300, but I am still seeking another $2200. Over three months, that is just $200 a week — not a huge amount for the work I do, which involves media interviews and public appearances (mostly unpaid), as well as all my writing.

I know that tens of thousands of people read my work, through this website and via Facebook and Twitter, and if just a hundred of you gave $25 — or £15 — I’d reach my target. Read the rest of this entry »

Quarterly Fundraiser: Can You Help Me Raise $2500 to Support My Guantánamo Work?

Please support my work!

UPDATE September 23: My fundraising week is over, but I’m still hoping to raise $1650 of my $2500 target. If you can help out at all, it will be very much appreciated.

Dear friends and supporters,

It’s that time of year when I ask you, if you support my work on Guantánamo and the “war on terror,” to make a donation, if you can, to support my work. I have been researching and writing about Guantánamo for eight and a half years, since spring 2006, and I will continue to write about it, and to campaign for its closure, until it is finally shut for good.

Most of my work is unpaid, so many of my articles, the maintenance of this website and the social media associated with it, and most of my media appearances are only possible with your support. If you can help out at all, please click on the “Donate” button above to donate via PayPal (and I should add that you don’t need to be a PayPal member to use PayPal).

All contributions to support my work are welcome, whether it’s $25, $100 or $500 — or, of course, the equivalent in pounds sterling or any other currency. You can also make a recurring payment on a monthly basis by ticking the box marked, “Make This Recurring (Monthly),” and if you are able to do so, it would be very much appreciated.

Readers can pay via PayPal from anywhere in the world, but if you’re in the UK and want to help without using PayPal, you can send me a cheque (address here — scroll down to the bottom of the page), and if you’re not a PayPal user and want to send a check from the US (or from anywhere else in the world, for that matter), please feel free to do so, but bear in mind that I have to pay a $10/£6.50 processing fee on every transaction. Securely packaged cash is also an option! Read the rest of this entry »

Quarterly Fundraiser Day 4: $1800 Still Needed to Support My Guantánamo Work

Please support my work!

Dear friends and supporters,

Today is the fourth day of my quarterly fundraiser, in which I ask you, if you can, to make a donation to support my ongoing work telling the stories of the men still held in Guantánamo, and campaigning to secure the closure of the prison. If you can help out at all, please click on the “Donate” button above to donate via PayPal (and please note that you don’t need to be a PayPal member to use PayPal).

Most of the work I do in unpaid — or, more specifically, is only supported by you, my readers — and that is not just the majority of the 20 or so articles I write every month, but also some of my personal appearances, and most of my media appearances (on radio and TV), as well as my work on other issues of importance — the future of the NHS, for example, and the Tory-led UK government’s cruel assault on the disabled.

As a result, it is no exaggeration to say that, without your support, I will be unable to carry on working as I do. Since I launched this particular fundraiser on Monday, seven friends have donated $700, for which I’m very grateful, but over the next three months, that works out at just $50 a week, which isn’t really enough to live on.

Quarterly Fundraiser: $2500 Needed to Support My Guantánamo Work

Please support my work!

Dear friends and supporters,

It’s that time of year again, when I ask you, if you can, to help to support my work as an independent journalist researching, writing about and commenting on the “war on terror” prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and working to try to get the men still held there either released or tried, and the prison closed down. If you can help out at all, please click on the “Donate” button above to donate via PayPal (and I should add that you don’t need to be a PayPal member to use PayPal).

Every three months, I ask you if you can help to support my work — not just my writing, but also my personal appearances, the TV and radio interviews I undertake, and the maintenance of this website and various social media sites associated with it.

All contributions to support my work are welcome, whether it’s $25, $100 or $500 — or, of course, the equivalent in pounds sterling or any other currency. You can also make a recurring payment on a monthly basis by ticking the box marked, “Make This Recurring (Monthly),” and if you are able to do so, it would be very much appreciated.

Fundraiser Day 3: Still Seeking $2000 to Support My Guantánamo Work

Please support my work!

Dear friends and supporters,

It’s the third day of my quarterly fundraiser, in which I ask you, if you can, to support my work on Guantánamo and related issues as a freelance investigative journalist. If you can help out at all, please click on the “Donate” button above to donate via PayPal.

All contributions are welcome, whether it’s $25, $100 or $500 — or, of course, the equivalent in pounds sterling or any other currency. You can also make a recurring payment on a monthly basis by ticking the box marked, “Make This Recurring (Monthly),” and if you are able to do so, it would be very much appreciated.

Although I receive some support for my work on the “Close Guantánamo” campaign and website, most of what I do is unpaid — or, to be more accurate, is reader-supported. A donation of $25 (£15) is just $2 (or £1) a week for the next three months, which, I hope, isn’t too much to ask to help me to continue to write the five articles I publish on average every week.

Please support my work!

Can you help to support my work on Guantánamo as a researcher, writer, public speaker and activist? Every three months, I ask you to make a donation to support my work. Please click on the link above if you can help out.

Without your support — and your support alone — I would not be able to undertake most of my work; and that means the majority of the 60-plus articles I’ve written and published since my last fundraiser in September, as well as the personal appearances, the TV and radio interviews, and the maintenance of this website and various social media sites associated with it.

All contributions are welcome, whether it’s $25, $100 or $500 — or, of course, the equivalent in pounds sterling or any other currency.

Quarterly Fundraiser Day Three: Still Seeking $1500 For My Guantánamo Work

Please support my work!

It’s the third day of my quarterly fundraiser in which I ask you, my readers and supporters, to donate to support my work as an independent journalist, researching, writing about, and campaigning to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. I’m seeking $2500 to support my work over the next three months, With the help of seven friends and supporters, I’ve raised $1000 in the last few days, but I’m still hoping to raise another $1500 to keep me working over the next three months. Please click on the link above if you can help out.

Your support — and your support alone — funds the majority of my work, and it is no exaggeration to say that, without you, I wouldn’t be able to write and publish the majority of the 70 or so articles that I hope to be making available over the next three months. Your donations also cover my other work — the personal appearances, the TV and radio interviews, and the maintenance of this website and various social media sites associated with it.

All contributions are welcome, whether it’s $25, $100 or $500 — or, of course, the equivalent in pounds sterling or any other currency. You can also make a recurring payment on a monthly basis by ticking the box marked, “Make This Recurring (Monthly),” and if you are able to do so, it would be very much appreciated.

Quarterly Fundraiser: Please Help Me Raise $2500 For My Guantánamo Work

Please support my work!

Dear friends and supporters,

It’s that time of the year again. Every three months, I ask you, if you can, to make a donation to support my ongoing work on Guantánamo and the 164 men still held there. Please click on the “Donate” button above if you can help out.

Your support — and your support alone — is the reason that I can undertake most of my work; and that means the majority of the 60-plus articles I’ve written and published since my last fundraiser in June, as well as the personal appearances, the TV and radio interviews, and the maintenance of this website and the various social media sites associated with it.

As the days begin to draw in, I hope you have had a good summer. I managed to take two weeks off, when I was completely offline for the first time in seven years. However, both before and after the break, my time has been, and continues to be taken up by the campaign for justice for the Guantánamo prisoners — documenting their stories, documenting those involved in the ongoing hunger strike, seeking release for the 84 men cleared for release since January 2010, and seeking adequate reviews, trials or release for the other prisoners still held.

All contributions are welcome, whether it’s $25, $100 or $500 — or, of course, the equivalent in pounds sterling or any other currency. You can also make a recurring payment on a monthly basis by ticking the box marked, “Make This Recurring (Monthly),” and if you are able to do so, it would be very much appreciated.
