The Ragblogapalooza was a blast
The Rag Blog threw a benefit bash Tuesday night, Feb. 3, at Scholz Garten in Austin. The wonderful folk band The Melancholy Ramblers performed and some 100 friends hobbed and nobbed. The event raised $1,200 for the New Journalism Project, the Texas nonprofit corporation that publishes The Rag Blog.
The response of our friends has been heartwarming, but we still need the financial help of our online community. We take no advertising and have no source of support other than your contributions. The money you give goes to our operating expenses and to much needed upgrades and, in the future, to expanding The Rag Blog’s online presence.
We want to thank those who attended the Ragblogapalooza and all of you who have sent in donations. We also want to acknowledge our followers around the world; it’s your support that provides us with our inspiration. We consider all of you to be part of our community and we encourage you to send us your feedback and ideas.
If you are able to help, please send us $10, $20 or $50 — or whatever you can. Use the “DONATE” button on the sidebar or make out a check to “The New Journalism Project” and send it to:
