“And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” – Lk. 2:7
It’s hard to believe that OnePeterFive has only been online since August 1st, 2014.
Since then, we’ve delivered 4.6 million pages of content. Published over 800 posts from 70 contributors. Produced 27 podcasts. Our website or our work has appeared at Fox News, The Washington Post, Public Radio International, Huffington Post Live, and USA Today. We helped launch a petition that reached the Vatican during the Synod.
It’s a bit staggering to take it all in, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that it couldn’t have happened without you.
1P5 is the website for Catholics, built by Catholics. Whether it’s analysis of current events or theological explorations of the teachings of our faith, we’re providing a perspective on the Church that is completely unique in today’s world. But the only way we can continue to do this work is through your generous contributions. We don’t have big donors. We don’t have outside funding. We have hundreds of regular Catholics, just like you, who keep us going, month by month, donation by donation.
And right now, we really need your help!
We’ve outperformed expectations in every area this year except fundraising. And right now, we’re in serious trouble: We’re only 12% of the way toward our December goal of $10,000. We haven’t hit our fundraising goals even once this year. If we don’t get a boost soon, we’re going to run out of steam.
This is a personal appeal for me, because this is my full-time job. It’s how I feed my family and keep the heat on. If I can’t do that anymore, I can’t do this anymore. On the other hand, if we can increase our revenues and continue our growth, we’ll be able to do more and more to aid the cause of the Church in these difficult times.
Please prayerfully consider making a tax-deductible contribution today. And if you can’t contribute, please pray that we’ll find others who can. Share this post. Ask your friends and family. Help us to meet our monthly fundraising goal for the first time ever and start building a better future for our apostolate.
I can’t thank you enough for all your generosity so far. This entire endeavor began with God, and it belongs to him. Whatever happens, we gave it our all, and I know you did, too.
“Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.” – Mt. 6:33
