Today is the ideal time to support to help stop the next war before it starts and to take advantage of the $33,000 a generous group of donors has offered to give if we can raise a matching amount from you, our loyal readers and supporters.

Timing is everything, in both journalistic activism and charitable giving. Yes, we work to end wars already raging, but we also spot wars in the making, and strive to stop them before they start. We were on the front lines of the movement that prevented a US air war against Syria. Now our matchless coverage of Iran is helping to potentially seal off another neocon path to war.

But we can't keep heading them off without your help. And the timing is just right to support, because any tax-deductible donation you make now will have twice the impact!
