A group of our more well-heeled and generous friends have gotten together and raised $32,000 in matching funds to support Antiwar.com's fall fundraising drive – but there's a catch.

We have to match that amount in individual donations, or else – no dice.

It's time to put an end to this fundraiser: we have better things to do. The sheer amount of news is, frankly, overwhelming – and can barely deal with it and simultaneously do the hard work of raising money. We need to get on with our real job – which is giving you the best coverage of international affairs available online.

Please make your tax-deductible donation today.
