The other day, one of our readers emptied his PayPal account to send us what he could to make the match we need in order to get the grant that keeps On Pasture publishing for another three years.
He’s a new rancher, and the $1.46 he had left in his account was everything he had until his next pay day.
He promised more when he had it to give.
That’s an example of what we’ve known in our hearts since the first day we published On Pasture. People need what On Pasture provides, but they may not always be able to spare the change to keep it going. It’s why we’ve never put up a pay wall, and why we put together a Conservation Innovation Grant proposal.
Now we have a grant that will support On Pasture for the next three years. But it requires $15,000 in match from our readers every year. It’s not a lot to ask when you figure there are about 80,000 On Pasture readers every month.
We’ve almost made the $15,000. Last week we had $5,824 to go. This week we have just $4,903.54 to go. We’d really appreciate your support, no matter how large or small. Just click this button, choose the amount that works for you, and feel the warmth of a big, virtual hug from your On Pasture editors, Rachel and Kathy.
You’ll also get an “Everything’s Better On Pasture” bumper sticker AND if you can afford $50 or more in support, we’ll send you Shannon Hayes book “A Long Way On A Little.”
Thanks so much!
Kathy and Rachel
