Freedom House China Media Bulletin Needs Your Help

Freedom House sent this:

As you may know, in November 2010, Freedom House launched the China Media Bulletin, a weekly digest of news and analysis on media freedom issues related to the People's Republic of China.

In the short time since it began publishing, this unique information source has become a must-read item for policymakers, academics, and opinion leaders interested in China's internal dynamics and its rise as a world power. Individuals in Taiwan have been particularly enthusiastic about the bulletin, totaling over 400 of our 1,200 subscribers.

Unfortunately, the CMB is due to run out of publishing funds next month. As such, we are currently trying to raise its profile and alert a wider audience to the need for support to sustain it. If you have found the Bulletin helpful as a source of information and analysis, we would be grateful if you would be willing to share this with a wider circle in order to spread the word.

Thank you very much for your interest in Freedom House's work. More information can be found on its special page
The donations page is here:
Don't miss the comments below! And check out my blog and its sidebars for events, links to previous posts and picture posts, and scores of links to other Taiwan blogs and forums! Delenda est, baby.

Since they probably pay attention to you, I'd suggest the follwoing:

1. Make the donate button bigger and put it on the left side of the website. See Iowahawk

2. Launch fundraisers and get togethers od people with marketable views on China. See National Review cruises

3. Regularly ask for donations. See church tithing and how asking causes giving.

I already sent them some tips in a private email. But I'll gladly expand. The email they sent around didn't even have the donate link in the email itself -- you have to go find it!
