Is your name on the list?

By | June 26th, 2017

You read this site every day. You follow our well-researched, useful stories. Maybe you comment on the posts, too.

But is your name on the list?

As our spring fundraiser reaches the halfway point, that’s my question. Are you standing behind the fearless consumer advocacy we commit every day on your behalf?

If the answer is “yes” then I want to thank you for your support. We’re almost halfway to our goal of raising $25,000 — money desperately needed to keep the site running.

If you’re not on the list, there’s never been a better time to contribute to the cause.

This week, we’re featuring annual accounts from our friends at Boingo. Its service expands data capacity in large venues like airports, stadiums, university campuses and military bases by deploying state-of-the-art Wi-Fi and DAS small cell networks. And, more importantly, Boingo supports the advocacy work that helps its customers — frequent travelers — have a better trip. I’m beyond grateful for that.


If you become an underwriter this week, you could win a free year’s worth of connectivity from Boingo.

I hope you’ll consider adding your name to the list, standing up for an organization that will stand up for you.

The world is filled with companies that want to take your money and give you a shoddy product or service. Government regulators are sleeping on the job. Lawyers cost a lot of money. My team is often the only thing standing between you and justice — and a small donation will keep us running for another year.

Many thanks for being there for my advocacy team today. Many thanks for adding your name to the list.
