It’s the Third Day of Our Summer Appeal for Donations During the Pandemic – Keep the OB Rag Going

The OB Rag has reached three-fourths of our Pandemic Summer Fundraiser! At this point, we’ve received $1250 in donations. That is very exciting.

Most of us are aware of the stakes involved, as trump threatens to not accept the results of the November election, hints that he’d like to postpone it – which he cannot – continues to call the press, “the enemy of the people” and bristles at every negative news story about his pathetic response to the COVID-19 response. But the people of OB and Point Loma (and the rest of San Diego as well) continue to need the OB Rag more than ever.

It turns out, the OB Rag is one of the most progressive local news platforms in all of Southern California. Providing local OB and Point Loma news and analysis, maintaining a discussion platform that is better than a dozen facebook pages, and keeping track of the various crises hitting us is a daily challenge.

The OB Rag has not folded like some media platforms have that were based on advertisements, because we rely on our readers and supporters to survive and thrive. Our online newspaper for the Peninsula communities is in its 13th year and that’s mainly because our efforts are motivated by a love of the people and neighborhoods that we serve.  Please ensure that we can keep going.

The effort to manage and run The OB Rag is considerable. It is a forum for news and discussion that matters to all of us in Point Loma. They don’t ask for much when they do ask, clearly the staff is not getting rich on this venture. At least judging by how the editor dude is attired. Come on folks, step on up, even a little helps.

Thanks for what you do! My small donation isn’t enough, but I do spread word of the newsletter/website.
