Dear Ethiopian Review reader:
This week we are launching a regular monthly fund raising campaign to help us meet our 2012 budget goals. One week every month until the end of 2012 we will conduct an online fund raising.
With the help of our sponsors, Ethiopian Review’s web site has been able to withstand constant attacks from TPLF regime hackers and the high volume of traffic these past few weeks. However, the plan to expand our information infrastructure inside Ethiopia is lagging behind because of lack of resources, which is limiting our effort to collect valuable information.
To help expand Ethiopian Review’s capacity, particularly its ability to collect and disseminate information inside Ethiopia, we have launched a sponsorship program called 1k5. We invite you to take part in it.
The plan is to have 1,000 sponsors who are willing to contribute $5 per month (16 cents per day) or more to support Ethiopian Review. The program will be used for: 1) funding information units inside Ethiopia; 2) maximizing the web site’s technical capacity to make it faster and fight off hackers. With this program we can double Ethiopian Review’s capacity.
Ethiopian Review’s 2012 Plan is more ambitious than ever. It involves expanding our information infrastructure and network inside Ethiopia; adopting latest technologies; and forging partnerships with other pro-democracy media and groups to facilitate positive change in our country.
For Ethiopian Review to be able to succeed, we need the continued support of its readers. We have made it more simple and convenient for you to support us.
I invite you to sponsor Ethiopian Review by participating in the 1K5 Sponsorship Program. Please sign up for $5 per month. The system we have set up will automatically deduct $5 from your credit, debit, or Paypal account monthly.

Ethiopian Review believes that the struggle for democracy must be anchored in and owned by Ethiopians. Accordingly, our plan is to build capacity within the country. Your contribution will help us do this. To strengthen trust, confidence and transparency, contributions and how they are spent will be audited and reported to our sponsors.
