A Letter from Andrew Grice

"We proved the naysayers wrong... now, we're asking for your help again"

Six months ago, there wasn’t going to be any more Narco News. No more School of Authentic Journalism to equip young journalists to break through the information blockades to get out the truth about our América. But thanks to each and every one of you for your dedication, enthusiasm and support, that bleak end was not to be.

Instead, Narco News came roaring back to life in February, breaking crucial stories at a breakneck pace and introducing the innovative Narcosphere. We proved the naysayers wrong by qualifying for the second $10,000 installment of our matching grant on March 18th, after a fund drive of just 44 days, allowing us to organize this summer’s full J-school session in Bolivia. And thanks to your continuing support, we’ve raised another $2982 since then.

And now, we’re asking for your help again. We need to raise $7012 by June 21st, to qualify for a final $10,000 matching grant installment from the Tides Fund for Drug Policy Reform. The money is necessary to insure that the Narco News J-school meets its obligations to the 34 scholars of the class of 2004, and also to keep Narco News publishing during this time. We can do this. Please, if you’ve contributed before, help us again. If you’ve been waiting on the sidelines for the moment to contribute, that time is now.

Finally, to sweeten the pot, we’re offering a gift for all new contributions of $100 or more. While supplies last, take your pick of two attractive Narco News watches. These designs of coca leafs and our América-turned-upside-down logo are a must have for punctuality and style. Check out the photos, and please, click this link today to make an instant contribution through PayPal:

We have just 30 days to raise $7,000. Can we count on you?
