We are enormously grateful that two supporters of www.RaceForIran.com have come forward with a generous and challenging offer to help sustain www.RaceForIran.com: if contributions amounting to $500 are made to www.RaceForIran.com by midnight, Eastern Standard Time, on January 6, 2011, these two supporters will contribute a matching amount. This is an all-or-nothing proposal—if the $500 target is not met by midnight on January 6, the match is forfeited; if, however, www.RaceForIran.com has received $500 in total contributions by then (remember, small contributions add up), then another $500 gets put in the pot. Please note that there is a $20 paypal button option on the sidebar of this page and that a check for any amount can be sent to the New America Foundation at the address listed in the sidebar.
The pair of prospective donors who have issued this challenge wish to remain anonymous, and we will honor their request. But we are deeply grateful for their support, and hope it will prompt others to meet their challenge.
We promise to be back with more posts right after New Year’s. In the meantime, best wishes to all for a wonderful 2011!
