Just Ask.

Back in July, I created a fundraiser for my Google Doc, Not a Newsletter, and asked my readers to donate to The Marshall Project. I wasn’t sure how much money we’d raise.

In the first 24 hours, we raised $1,000. In a month, we raised more than $3,300.

I’m thrilled, and so, so grateful.

It’s a reminder for me: Put the work out into the world, and see what happens. You don’t know what will happen until you ask.


A big thank you to Givebutter, which made this fundraiser possible. I’d absolutely use their platform again.
