We are approaching 1,200 contributors to the NR’s 2018 Fall Webathon. Over $112,000 has entered the coffers, thanks to the generosity of these comrades in arms. Some of them say nice things when they are engaging with the collection basket. Such as
- David, who added those extra zeros before the decimal point in order to send $1,000 while expressing gratitude: “Thanks being the voice of reason, of honor and principles, of fairness and justice, and faith.” And as we have said before, it is us (or we?) who should be doing the thanking.
- Meanwhile, David spots us a sweet $500 and gives the all-caps kudos: “Thanks For The Clear Voice Of Conservatism In The Country.” Two can play that game: David, Thank You!
- And then there is that reliable pal, Anonymous, who also found NR worth a $500 contribution. As for why: “I’m a conservative and a federal employee living in D.C. Thank you for making me feel like I’m not alone in the world! And thank you for standing up for Justice Kavanaugh.” Thanks for standing there alongside us, Anon.
- We’ll wrap this up with informing you that Charles gave us $100 and his very bona fides: “Working on the Goldwater presidential campaign and attending Loyola University in New Orleans with Wm F. Buckley Jr.’s maternal cousins, I learned a half century ago that National Review provides respite in dismal times.” Less dismal thanks to kindness such as yours, our old friend.
To these and all who have seen fit to contribute, we offer our ocean-depths thanks. And we encourage those who are considering doing the same to make that yes decision and contribute to our Webathon, done securely right here. That way we get to thank you, too. (By the way, if you prefer to send a check, please mail it to National Review, ATTN: Fall 2018 Webathon, 19 West 44th Street, Suite 1701, New York, NY 10036.)
