We're fortunate to have some very good news to report! We have raised 1770.00 dollars since I posted that we were broke. That means we'll be able to continue the project for the time being, but we are still seeking support in the form of monthly subscription payments, which are currently stalled at about $225/mo (that's less than 10% of what we need to run the project each month). We hope you will consider making an ongoing payment if you haven't yet, and you value the work of Alive in Baghdad. We are lucky to have a colleague who has made a substantial loan to the project, which will keep us going at least through November. We are uncertain how long this arrangement will be tenable, and hope that the donation of $2200/mo by one dedicated supporter will encourage those of you who have not yet taken a moment to support the work of Iraqi journalists, who risk their lives each week to bring you they type of detailed stories you can't find anywhere else.

Last but not least, we have received a bit of media coverage of late! Please check out this great story by Dan Rubin of the Philly Inquirer, profiling Alive in Baghdad. Also, if you're in the New York Area, Brian will be speaking on the Bryant Park Project between 7 and 8am on Friday October 26th.
