Happy Birthday FDL Membership – March 8, 2012

By: Thursday March 8, 2012 11:05 am

On this day of March in 2011, only 5 quick months after I began working for Firedoglake, we launched our membership drive. We had over 500 members join within the first week, and an additional 300 in the second week. It was an amazing heartfelt success, as people were pledging to help make Firedoglake sustainable for years.

By joining membership, whether you all know it or not, you have helped to bring on new writers, support our staff, allow for more petitions and actions to take place, and encouraged us to grow as a news source.

FIREDOGLAKE – Independent Media. Kick-Ass Activism. Join Today.


My OccupySupply Shop: Warming the Country, One Hat at a Time

Over the past week, I have been organizing what is being called my “OccupySupply Shop.” I have neatly organized all the supplies that have come in, minus around 250 blankets, that just won’t fit anywhere. Those are getting shipped out quickly.

Jane and I woke up early yesterday morning and took a ride to the Target to buy supplies for people encamped at #OccupyKStreet. We then had to go to Maryland to buy propane, which is not sold in DC. It was a bit of an adventure but we managed to procure everything we set out to get.

#OccupyDC Cooks Need Propane to Function

We want to help Calvin and #OccupyDC out by helping them purchase propane to cook with. If you’d like to help us, you can chip in $10 to buy fuel for the propane grills at #OccupyDC. We will be using the money we take in from our coverage fund to purchase propane and other supplies, so that is why we are asking people to donate there.
