Wildest expectations

Wildest expectations r1 ... View this e-mail in your browser Dear PAOV,

I’m so excited to share with you that The Narwhal just had its best month ever. In October, nearly 250,000 people read our articles and another 125,000 people watched our videos.

Some people like to say it’s not possible for a news outlet to survive without running ads or taking money from big corporate shareholders, but every single day you prove them wrong by supporting our reader-funded journalism.

My colleague Carol Linnitt and I started The Narwhal because we wanted to change the Canadian media landscape for the better. Now we’re 18 months in and The Narwhal has exceeded our wildest expectations: we’ve won national awards, our readership has doubled and every day we hear from people like you saying how grateful they are we exist.

We have even bigger plans for 2020, but we need your help to get there.

Will you become a monthly member of The Narwhal today so we can keep investigating stories no one else will?

For every story you read and share from The Narwhal, there’s a mountain of work going on behind the scenes — from recruiting talented writers and photographers to reviewing hundreds of story pitches to fact-checking, legal review, editing, design and promotion.

Here’s the crazy thing: as of right now, we have just one full-time editor.

We are bursting at the seams and every day we find out about more stories that need to be told. To bring these stories out of the shadows, we urgently need to hire another editor.

To add this new position, we need to sign up 150 new monthly members by Nov. 30. Please become a monthly member of The Narwhal today to bring the power of independent journalism to more people.

Thanks for all you do,

Emma Gilchrist

P.S. As you know, we can do a lot with a little. Nearly 20,000 people are receiving this message. If just one in 100 of you become a monthly member, we’ll meet our goal in a jiffy.
