In 2016, I saw what amazing work donations from individuals can create. In 2017, I’d like to try and promote that more, by donating money where I can, and to tell others about organizations I support.

One such organization has constantly been my source for great journalism: ProPublica. They seem to always write about really important content, have won three Pulitzer Prizes for their work (2010, 2011 and 2016), and now they are also taking over a lot of the great work by the Sunlight Foundation (for example

According to, ProPublica gets around one million unique visitors per month, spends about $74k on capital costs (that probably is rent plus their AWS bill), and spends $1.6 million on non-journalist salaries.

If you get a chance, please read their work and donate money. The world needs more in-depth journalism.

You can donate on the facebook link at the beginning of this article or just go to
