Big news! Matching gift thru Sunday - double your donation!
To our amazing donors,
Big news today! We’ve just received a wonderfully generous offer from Sunil Paul (San Francisco) to match everything we raise on Kickstarter!! (that means a match of at least $100k!)
Can you help us leverage this extraordinary gift? I’m sure you’ve noticed that we have a $31k gap to fill by Sunday. We’re at $69k now.
How do we get to $100k?
- Double your donation: So far, we have raised $39k from 487 individuals, plus three $10k donations. If each of you were willing to double your donation, we would surpass our goal by doing this alone! Would you consider taking this step? Remember, doubling your donation results in a quadrupling of your gift because of Sunil’s generosity.
- Find a friend who will donate: If your friend will match your donation, your gift will be doubled again.
Remember, whatever you donate will be doubled by Sunil when we meet our $100k goal.
Thanks for your support!
p.s. We’ve been inspired by the stories you’ve told us about why you support the project – if you’d like to read quotes from fellow donors, see these links:
“I'm in my late teens, so I feel like the Internet is another world I grew up in. I partly accept it for what it is. However, I think that since so many news sites are racing to tell an exciting story, true or false, and many sites are biased, some people, like me, take the articles with just a grain of salt. …. And well, when I saw the Hypothes.is mission statement, I felt inspired by it.… I just felt like I recognized a good thing when I saw it.” - Tess Williams
“I cannot say there is any specific area where I ‘feel the pain’ - I guess to briefly extend the analogy, there is no place that hurts, rather if feels like an overall infection… From what I read of hypothes.is, [it] seems to me an attempt to bring credibility to the current messy mass of data out there: to use the internet community as a filter to turn data into information, and I am definitely a supporter of this.” - Natalia
