It's the most wisely spent money of 2017 as far as I'm concerned! I've been very eagerly following the progress, crossing my fingers at each and every update, only to find out you/we all did it and I'm super happy and excited to be part of this amazing initiative and adventure! Thanks for coming up with this collaborative approach and being out there with outstanding journalism! (French) Christine X
Fantastic - now all you have to do us deliver the plan! Seriously, heartfelt congratulations. As somebody once said "If you build it they will come". Well you built it, and we came!
Wishing the NI team all the support you need - for factual, insightful investigative journalism that is not afraid to report on the many facets of an issue, especially those that are not usually heard.
I have decided to support the New Internationalist, of which I have been a subscriber for longer than I can remember, by buying shares. There's never been a greater need for independent journalism. No "alt-facts", no "fake news", just the stories and the lives of the little people who are fighting the big players to protect their livelihood, their country, their environment, our planet: join the dots and gain a better perspective on what is really going on in the world.
I'm happy to support independent and balanced journalism which so essential to freedom, rights and understanding in our present dangerous world.
I'm new to NI but I deeply appreciate your work! As a young activist it's really important to me that honest, independent media & news is available. I look forward to the wonderful things in NI and the world's future!
I'm so pleased and relieved at how well the share offer has gone, that I've decided to double my previous investment to celebrate, and help the great N.I. reach even more people.
This is about the New Internationalist's life story not mine. However, I'm glad the tow became intertwined and long may that informative relationship continue. Many thanks for your great work now and in the future.
I have read New Internationalist for over 20 years and am thrilled to be able to invest in what you do and become a new co-owner of NI! Thank you for everything, I really hope you reach the target. In a world of fake news and all that's going on right now, we need NI and the voices and solutions within it!
Funding a winning Idea is never the challenge it is holding on for dear life when all the elements come against you. When I thought (wrote about) of controlling the weather the Illuminati took it as a directive to spray the skies with chemicals hence the advent of Chemtrails how stupid are they that goes for you too Lizzy. How do you intend to manage fake Internationalists?
In a world where it is so easy to only consume news that is either state or commercially funded it is crucial to keep an independent voice as important as New Internationalist being heard as clearly as possible. I am proud be able to make a small contribution and I wish NI well in reaching it's goal.
I <3 the New Internationalist and I'm extremely proud to be a part of this people-powered project. Best of luck in reaching your target and continuing to speak truth to power!
I have been a long time contributor and friend of the New Internationalist for many decades and it is a privilege to be able to share in their, and OUR future. Hope we can all reach the target together and make it the most egalitarian and democratic media project in the world!
Have been a subscriber for over 30 years. Always impressive , always challenging , always on the right side. Long may your voice be heard.
Happy to sign up. I met up with the original NI team in rural Oxfordshire way back when it started and before I left the UK for Australia so I've subscribed one way or the other over many years. You've done an incredible job, kept afloat and not been taken over by the Dirty Digger.
