We're close to it.

It is now Day 5, and we've only raised a bit over $30,000 – which is only enough to get us through half the next quarter.

Quite frankly, this fundraiser has been a disaster so far. Unless the contributions start coming in, Antiwar.com will start making radical – and I do mean very noticeable – cutbacks starting this coming Monday.

As relatively tiny as our staff is, we'll have to get rid of most of it. Our operating costs are $60,000 dollars a quarter. Without that, there will be no one to research hundreds of sites each day, no one to continuously update the news. No more regular columns – there won't be anybody to edit them, or to pay the writers and syndication costs.

In short, what this means is no more Antiwar.com as the watchdog of peace – and the War Party will have good reason to celebrate.

But it's not too late to save a venerable antiwar institution from the chopping block. We still have a few days to make our goal – or, at least, approximate it. You can help save Antiwar.com – but only if you act immediately. We have bill collectors banging on our door, and we can't put them off much longer.

The clock is ticking. Unless you act now – by going here to contribute – Antiwar.com is history.

What are you waiting for?

As of Thursday night, 423 of you gave $30,124 toward the $60,000 needed to keep Antiwar.com running for the next quarter. We're falling behind, please help.
