Fundraising Drive for Marcy’s $5000 NOI Grant — Success!
Yesterday, it was announced that Marcy Wheeler won the Hillman Award for her investigative blogging. NOI said they would match any donation dollar for dollar up to $5000, so we set out to raise $5000. Instead, we raised $15,000 — for a total of $20,000 to the Marcy fund over the past 24 hours. Woo hoo! Many, many thanks to Judith Freeman and the folks at NOI, and to everyone who donated. I’ve added the total to the thermometer.
Thanks also to everyone who posted about the award, including Susie Madrak, Skippy, Matt Yglesias, Josh Marshall, Scott Lemieux, Moon of Alabama, Dana Houle, Bloggasm, Americablog, Leftword, BlueGirl and fromcascadia.
We’re really proud of Marcy and her much-deserved honor. If you’d still like to contribute to the Marcy fund so she can have the resources to do what she does full-time, you can still do so.
