The $2 Challenge: How You Can Help Racialicious

By Arturo R. García

As Latoya mentioned last week, The R is looking to amp up big over the course of the next few months.

To recap, the list of projects includes:

  • The blog carnival on sex/love/dating
  • The revamped Addicted To Race 2.0 podcast
  • Transcripts for the subsequent episodes
  • The launch of a new in January 2011

And there’s at least one more project that I’m especially involved in that we haven’t announced yet, but will soon. Overall, the game-plan is one of growth, of not only continuing our work, but to extend our reach farther than ever. But, as Latoya also noted, we need your help to do so.

Starting today, we’re asking you, our readers, to contribute $2 to the site to help us as we get these projects off the ground and move ahead. A $2 donation from each of our regular, every day, die hard readers would net us $20,000.  A $2 from half the people who come through each month would put us in the neighborhood of $200,000. Feel free to donate more – $5, $10, or even $20 would mean a lot to us at this planning stage. Just make your donation in the widget at the end of this post, on the right side of the page – and please feel free to spread the word. Thanks, as ever, for your support and readership over the years. We’re looking forward to keeping up the fight in 2011.
