OB Rag Summer Fundraiser: We’re Over Three-Fourths to Our Goal

The OB Rag summer fundraiser is rolling along, and we’re now over three-fourths on the way to our goal of $2,000. We have raised $1,545 so far.

And we’re further along than we were last year at this point in the fundraising. This is all wonderful. So, help us reach the last $500.

The OB Rag survived Trump and the pandemic, unlike some media and news platforms. (Yeah, we know Trump has not disappeared and is still trying the insurrection scenario, plus we’re very aware of the new variant and the current wave.) The OB Rag has not folded like some 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 14th 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.

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 original OB Rag was first published in the fall of 1970 – and we’re still here 51 years later – over a freaking half century! okay,there’s been some gaps – but with your help, we’d like to be around another 50 years.

See Ray Blavatt’s bitchin graphic; the house in the background is the Etiwanda Street house where the first OB Rag was born in 1970.
