I'm sharing my story with you

We asked supporters to share stories about why they support our work for our special December Allies Drive – our yearly drive for monthly donors. This story, from Christina Bub of Ontario, was one of our favourites:

An open and free internet is a clear path to a wonderful future full of potential we may not even be aware of today. I run a small hobby business, and without ever having a shop or even a single printed piece of marketing material, I've been able to sell my product all over the world.

OpenMedia has been the most intelligently organised movement that I have seen. When I support OpenMedia with my regular contribution, I feel less like I'm donating to a cause, and more like I'm paying OpenMedia to work for me. They're doing a job, they do it well, and I always feel like I got what I paid for with my donation...and then some!

OpenMedia does all the leg-work – they tear down the hurdle that prevents people from taking action, so their campaigns reflect the true number of like-minded people who care about the open Internet.

Please join me in contributing to OpenMedia because they put together focused and well-organised campaigns. Because they take the time to share well-researched information on the issues we're fighting for. Because they hold themselves to a high standard of accountability to their supporters.

Help OpenMedia continue to be our voice, presence, and eyes on the Internet issues we feel strongly about, but cannot devote our own time to. Become an Ally today.

Sincerely,

Christina, with support from the OpenMedia team
