Simply put: You are all awesome. THANK YOU.

We are blown away by the 1,701 of you who collectively raised £50,891 to fund Bellingcat.

In just 30 days, we were able to finish development and launch open access of the site ahead of schedule, all because of the overwhelming support from each of you. You carried us over the target goal, which means Bellingcat can now continue to run beyond the next six months.

Already we've got some great future projects planned that will involve Bellingcat contributors and readers, and many more tools and techniques to share with everyone over the coming months. 

We hope each of you to take a look at all the content that’s already been published on the site and encourage you to join in on the collaborative process of shaping how media reaches audiences around the globe.

Cheers! Eliot & Team
