Sounds like it is Time to Join Mission Local…

Here’s some audiovisual excellence for your afternoon: The sounds of the Mission, set to animations by local filmmaker, designer and animator Claudia Escobar. Hmm…do you hear that? Sounds kinda like it’s time to join our membership program and support neat projects like this one!

If only 2,000 of our friends signed up to support Mission Local for $10 a month or $120 a year, Mission Local would be self-sustaining.  So, be a friend in deed.

If you find the process clunky or frustrating, vent at info@missionlocal.com and we’ll send someone over to pick up your check.

How Does Mission Local Survive – 12/20/14

Right now Mission Local survives on grit, hope and some savings. We won’t endure forever on this but our hope is that you – the readers who return to us frequently –  will become members; that businesses that benefit from a thriving local media will also step up.

When I mention our revenue model to readers, the response is often, of course, but you haven’t advertised it enough. So, we will be advertising our dependence on you in many different ways and we will keep you informed on how it is going. If you want to know more about our membership drive,  you can check out the FAQs we posted earlier.  And if you want to come in for a visit, e-mail us at info@missionlocal.com.

To those of you who have been early adapters on signing up – many, many thanks.
