Wait, What? and I need a little help from our friends….




Thanks to nearly three dozen generous donors in Connecticut, and around the nation, we have surpassed the 50 percent mark in the 2016 spring Wait, What? Fundraising Appeal.
However, with only ten days to go in this fundraising effort, Wait, What? and I really need your help.
I know these are extremely difficult economic times and you receive an extraordinary number of fundraising requests from worthy causes every day, but silence and going dark is not an option, so I am turning to the readers – yet again – for your help and support.
The charter school industry and their corporate education reform allies spend tens of millions of dollars – every year – on public relations, lobbying, campaign donations and faux media outlets.
By comparison, those of us who are fighting to shine the light of truth about their efforts to undermine public education, while holding our elected officials accountable for their actions, are left to rely on the support of small contributors from people who believe in our mission.
Up against the power and money of the education reform billionaires, as well as the Gates Foundation, the Broad Foundation, the Walton Foundation and dozens of other deep pockets, some would say the best course of action is to throw in the towel and give up.
But we are fighting for our principles, our values, our democracy and most importantly, our children.
We will never give up…
We will never be silent.
That said, there are real costs associated with the effort to educate, persuade and mobilize people about the important issues that we face … and to help with those expenses, we need your help.
Please give what you can to keep the Wait, What? blog moving forward.
When it comes to the battle at hand, no contribution is too big or too small…
