I know you’re getting lots of fundraising emails, so I’ll keep it short. I’m not going to list our 2023 accomplishments nor our 2024 plans. We’ll do that when we’re not asking for money.
If you’ve been reading our newsletters, you know that we’ve been working on campaigns to protect public education, keep our infrastructure public, help groups around the country working to prevent privatization of water systems, school support services, and much more.
A couple of years ago we did a fundraising email that raised funds money and it got my book, The Privatization of Everything, into lots of people’s hands.
This year, since I have a new book out, in return for your donation of $50 or more, you’ll get more than our good work and our undying gratitude. You’ll get Corporate Bullsh*t.: Exposing the Lies and Half-Truths That Protect Profit, Power, and Wealth in America, which I wrote with Joan Walsh and Nick Hanauer.
The book is about how private interests have kept control over our most basic public goods, such as health, safe workplaces, economic security, clean air, safe food, and other things we all need to survive and thrive.
If you make a donation to In the Public Interest of at least $50 between now and January 6, 2024, we will send you a copy of the book.
Visit this page to make a donation—once we get word you’ve made your contribution, we’ll get to work getting a book out to you. After what Trump’s Postmaster General did to undermine the heroic efforts of the U.S. Postal Service, we can’t guarantee you’ll get it by the holidays, but we can definitely, absolutely, 100 percent guarantee you it will be worth the wait (see—even we can practice corporate bullsh*t).
PS: If you want to do give it as a holiday gift, it’s better to pick it up at your local independent bookstore or one of those online shopping bookstores.
