nine days to lift-off / beloved Popula Friends!!! / we are so grateful

Posted by Popula (Creator)

Hello to our dear Popula Kickstarter Friends!

We are so thrilled to be approaching the end, or rather the beginning! of our adventure with you. With just nine days to go of our Kickstarter Subscription Drive, Popula is 87% of the way to our goal of raising $25,000 to help us continue to bring you sustainable, ad-free independent global news and culture YAY. 

Thank you so much for your generous contribution to the Subscription Drive. We hope you will encourage your friends to come and read Popula, and that they too will consider joining.

Here is our toast to you!

Our subscription drive ends on January 31st, and if we make our goal, we'll be readying your subscriber gifts and sending them out immediately. We can't wait! And we've got a lot of crazy new ideas we'll be sharing with you in the weeks to come.

Popula's most-read piece so far in January is an interview with Gregg Segal, the photographer responsible for many iconic images of the last few years, including this one.

Ever wonder what this man (and his photographer) were thinking when this photo was taken? SO DID WE.

It's a remarkable, surprising interview with a sensitive and gifted artist. Please give it a read, and if you enjoy it, share with friends. 

Warm regards, and thank you again, so much, from all of us at Popula.
