Please spread this as far and wide as you can. The Earth First! Journal is in desperate need of funding for housing. The owner sold the house they were staying in without even telling them that he put it on the market. Now they need to make a counter offer by 4PM today or if they can’t make the funds, they need to raise whatever they can for a transition into a new home/office. They are trying to raise $80,000.

Exact wording of the Newswire Post:
URGENT: The Earth First! Journal Collective Needs $80,000 to Stay in Our House!
The house that the Earth First! Journal Collective has been renting for about four years in Lake Worth, Florida, has been sold, and we are now in dire need of money to make a counter offer by 4:00 PM today! With enough room and yard space for short and long termers to live and work, which is rare in this city and especially at this price, this house is ideal, and we really want to keep it. Unfortunately, we need at least 80,000 dollars to buy the property. If you have ever thought about making a donation of any amount to the Journal, now is the time!
If it turns out that our counter offer isn’t enough or we have to leave for any other reason, any money we raise now will go towards helping current Collective members transition to a new office situation and find storage space for journals, computers, and other supplies.
We hate to have to ask for so much, and realize that money is tight for a lot of people this time of year, but any contribution you make today could help the Journal thrive for years to come.
If you are planning on making a large donation, please contact us first! If you have questions about donating to this cause, feel free to contact us. Email: collective[at]earthfirstjournal.org. Phone: (561) 320-3840
