Every year I take four scheduled days off – completely off. Some years I may take Christmas off as well, but for the other 360 days the Vanguard publishes – each day, every day. And that means that every day during the year, I get up at 3 am and write. That’s a lot of work, 100 hour weeks, there are days like Monday where I’m out till 11 at meetings and sleep a few hours and get up to get the Vanguard out. I love this job and I love helping people and serving the community – but it is a lot of work for not much compensation.
So this time of year we usually mount a fund drive and we will be seeking about $3000 in the month of December which will be launched on Monday (November 27). You can help us out early by going to the main page (davisvanguard.org) and clicking donate.
You can especially help us a lot by becoming a monthly subscriber you can do that either from the donate button or the subscription button or by clicking here: https://davisvanguard.org/2017/04/subscriber . This year we have gone from dire fiscal problems in May to reaching a point of near sustainability through the subscription program.
As a reminder we still have our subscription drive where you can enter to win out raffle by signing up to be a monthly subscriber. We have had 10 already sign up that way, that’s another chunk of money that we are assured of getting each month that helps us pay our bills. Details are here: https://www.davisvanguard.org/2017/11/vanguard-end-year-subscription-raffle/ . We really need your help – the readers – they are the ones that make this work.
Thanks for reading and happy thanksgiving.
