The final week!

 

There are 8 days left in our #OwnTheMedia campaign and an amazing 861 people have already become co-owners. But the reality is that it's all-or-nothing: to secure our future, we need to reach the full £200,000 target within the next week. And that's where we need your help!

 

LET'S ALL INVITE ONE MORE PERSON TO JOIN!

The interesting fact is that if all 861 of us would get one more person to invest the minimum amount of £50 this week, we would make it (in fact, that would bring us to £201,250!)

So please have a think about who in your network of friends, family and colleagues might be interested in co-owning the media with you, and with all of us. Send that person a brief email with the www.ownthemedia.org link, explaining why you joined, or give them a call.

 

Our tracking data shows that personalised emails are by far the most popular way for people to convert their support into actual investments. If you want to spread the word even further, we'd love it if you can once again share our project link via Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. There are images and sample tweets and posts in a Dropbox folder here, which you can use as you wish.

Your support has taken us 79% of the way there. Now we've got just one week to get the remaining £41,800 in. We're giving it everything we've got and we know from the kind words of so many of you that you're right behind us. 

Thank you for having our back in these last crucial days. We hugely appreciate it.
