Hi all. So here’s the deal.
Last December we lost our Patreon and with it a huge percentage of our income.
Since then we have been running on a shoestring.
Following our covid19/11 series we had further video and podcast projects we were forced to cancel because we could not afford to pay our video editors for their time.
All our income since then has been going on simply keeping the site ticking over.
To make matters worse we are now reliant on PayPal for almost all of our remaining income. With PayPal’s planned “new conditions” regarding “misinformation that may cause harm”, we could soon be banned from there also. If that were to happen now we would essentially be dead in the water.
So, we are making some major changes in the way we can be funded.
Below you can find our new simplified donation form powered by Donorbox and Stripe, which will appear at the bottom of each new article.
We’re also now on two Patreon alternatives, Ko-Fi and SubscribeStar.
But this means nothing without your support.
You see, unlike some other alt media we really do not have any source of funding other than reader contributions.
We don’t have any well-placed supporters who send us monthly pay checks.
We don’t have “connections” in the establishment
We don’t have wealthy political friends.
All we have is you.
We understand times are tough for everyone, but if each visitor gave us just 10 pence/cents per month our financial problems would be over.
It’s just that most don’t.
…And that’s fine by the way!
We want people to access our content for free, and we don’t want anyone to feel obliged to pay just to read the information we provide, which is why we have never, to date, put anything behind a paywall, even temporarily.
But the bottom line is, looking forwards, if we can’t get back the income we lost from Patreon we won’t be able to continue running OFFG.
So, if you value what we do – now really is the time to show it.
