It is the last day of Scoop’s fundraising campaign at PledgeMe:

Scoop is Crowd-funding for the establishment of the Scoop Foundation for Public Interest Journalism. We are looking for a further 600 Kiwis who believe in democracy, freedom and the importance of a free media to join the 400 generous individuals who have already become Members of the Scoop Foundation and who are supporting us in our efforts to ensure NZ remains an informed participatory democracy.

If you despair for the state of the “mainstream media” then you owe it to yourself to support public interest journalism!

    Less than $500 to go. Jump to it, people.

    Now $380 so if we keep it up we’ll be over the bar and set for a great landing. Time yet – finishes at 11 pm but don’t leave it till the last minute is the plea.

    Woohoo. If you get in now you will be very proud of yourself for having been in on the start of the new Scoop and giving them that extra following wind that makes them winners.

    For $16 you have your name entered as a personal member of Scoop for a year.
    And the same for $52. ($16 represents the years of Scoop’s life, still a teenager, and $52 is $1 a week for this important next year.)
    $95 gives you Notable Membership reference for a year and a Scoop Notebook.)
    $200 gives a special Certificate that marks this success that should be hung on the wall.

        What’s the design Tracey. Is it the butterfly? Or chrysalis hatching with ‘Scoop headline: I was there at the birth’!

    Actually it is the last day but one before the deadline. The actual finish is tomorrow the 17th at 11 p.m. So don’t stop – even $16 will get you into The Great Enterprise.
    Pledges will only be confirmed if the target is reached by: 17/11/2015 at 11:00 PM

  6. There is now a stretch goal. If the pledges get to $60,000 by closing time at 11.00pm on Tuesday that additional $10,000 will be used to fund Scoop’s first post foundation investigative journalism project. This is seriously exciting news.
