Reposting this good news from yesterday. Thanks for your support!

Thank you to all of you who have pitched in so far for our Fall Fundraiser. In just a couple days, readers and friends have contributed nearly $2,000 to the Institute Investigative Fund -- most of which will go to our exciting new project to watch-dog rebuilding of the post-hurricane South, Gulf Coast Reconstruction Watch (which is getting huge traffic -- y'all have already crashed our server twice!).

If you'd like to support our one-of-a-kind investigative muckraking and sorely-needed Southern progressive voice, you can make a tax-deductible contribution here.

And I have some great news to help sweeten the deal: a very generous friend of the Institute has agreed to match all contributions in the next week, dollar for dollar, up to $7,500.

I'm not a math person, but I know this means your contribution will be doubled.

And if we can reach $7,500 in donations by Thanksgiving, we'll have raised $15,000 to support our growing team of award-winning reporters and tenacious bloggers in search of the truth -- bringing us very close to our $20,000 goal.

So thanks y'all. Your support is making great things possible.
