Thank You Readers! We've Met Our First Donation Match!

We're grateful for your dollars and your witty, profane notes.


Take a look over to your right at that Reason "r" filling up and you'll see that earlier today we added a whopping $25,000 donation!

That's the first of two $25,000 matching grants…which we reached in only 36 hours, thanks to all of you amazing Reason readers and viewers and listeners who have already generously given to our annual Webathon.

We are so grateful to everyone who helped us get this far already. Below, a few notes from you awesome givers:

Thank you for all your hard work. It's kept me sane in this insane world.

You betcha, pal!

First time donor. Politically, I don't always align with many of Reason's positions. I lean very much to the left. Regardless of my political inclination, I value objective, balanced, honest, lucid reporting whatever the political slant. I believe Reason provides this level of reporting. I have always valued well-reasoned (no pun intended) points of view that differ from mine because they force one to challenge their beliefs and assumptions on the issues. Thank you for doing what you do.

Or this punchy note:

From Hell's heart, I donate to thee.

Check out this person, who found some pennies for Reason in the sofa cushions:

I'm fairly poor but still very much value your insight, so here's a paltry $25.

And my personal fave, a donation for $100 that came it with the simple annotation:

Fuck it!

But we still have a long way to go to reach our goal so the rest of you: Please donate now so we can keep publishing the best libertarian news and commentary on the web.

  1. Someday I’d like to be the fly on the wall in these meetings. I envision the Koch Bro who backs Reason sending a flunky with a check, some discussion of the best way to tout and exploit it, gladhanding all around, “see ya next year”, and so on.

    I sure don’t see some random dood mailing in a check with a postit attached calling it a match.

  2. the best libertarian news and commentary on the web

    Thanks, that’s certainly the funniest thing I’ll read all week.

  3. This was definitely Suderman, right?

    “First time donor. Politically, I don’t always align with many of Reason’s positions. I lean very much to the left. . . .”

  4. I never got my books last year for my donation. Is there something I needed to do? I did get my subscription.

    1. Your books got stolen by WCR, who used them for personal self-gratification.

      They were in his butt.

      1. They were in his butt.
        Fun fact: This is the least surprising and not the most unsanitary place WCR hides stuff.

    2. I’d also like to say I never got the bag of editors’ finger nail clippings that I was promised for not donating.

  5. Second year running I got my personal note to Reason plastered up there for all to see! I think that’s a HIPAA violation.

    1. I assume yours was the $100 along with the “Fuck It!”? Or was yours the paltry $25?

      1. Neither. It’s like you don’t know me at all.

      2. (Also, “punchy” is a clue.)

  6. Are you sure that’s a donation and not a marketing revenue sharing payment from Vox?

  7. I kinda wanna to support the magazine (since the late 80s!) but I mostly hate-read the website (since 2006!). So not one thin dime, cutie.

  8. I essentially started three weeks past and that i makes $385 benefit $135 to $a hundred and fifty consistently simply by working at the internet from domestic. I made ina long term! “a great deal obliged to you for giving American explicit this remarkable opportunity to earn more money from domestic. This in addition coins has adjusted my lifestyles in such quite a few manners by which, supply you!”. go to this website online domestic media tech tab for extra element thank you .
