A message to Asia Sentinel's readers

We sent out a letter in December, asking for help to keep Asia Sentinel going. To those who donated via Paypal, we are sincerely grateful and want to thank you for your help. For those who were too busy, or forgot to contribute, we would like to ask again that you reach into your pockets.

Without your monetary support - and your continuing letters, comment and feedback - we would be lost. Now, by making a donation to us, you can help to provide support for the coverage and commentary that seek to keep Asian governments honest. We are asking our subscribers to acknowledge the worth of our reporting by contributing funds to maintain our standards and increase our coverage of Asia.

You have helped to sustain our watchdog journalism at a time when many face severe financial burdens as a result of the global credit crisis of 2008 and 2009.

Your generosity means more to us than you know. It means we can continue to hold governmental feet to the fire across Asia, and to continue to fight for justice for you. Thank you for keeping us on our feet and helping to make sure that we stay independent. And for new readers, or those who intended to support us but didn't, we look forward to your contributions.

Support Asia Sentinel

Make a donation via our Paypal site. All donations are gratefully accepted although US$120 per year - $10 per month - would be ideal. Thank you for standing with us through these difficult times.

All the best,

The Staff of Asia Sentinel
