Just put down that credit card and no one gets hurt.
Don’t buy – DONATE – and I’ll send out your gifts.
On September 12, 2001, President Bush asked Americans to go shopping. And the Bush-bots did as told.
I’ve got a better idea: don’t shop – give a tax deductible donation to support my crew. Donate to the not-for-profit Palast Investigative Fund and I will sign and send, in gratitude, a gift to you – or your friends or family. I’ll sign each item – just tell us the names of the gifted ones by December 14.
Make your tax-deductible donations at www.PalastInvestigativeFund.org and get the following:
New: DVD film: “The Assassination of Hugo Chavez” – A new documentary based on the investigations for BBC and Democracy Now – from Mexico, from Ecuador and, from, Venezuela, Palast with Chavez. $50 min. donation. Watch the trailer.
Updated: “Armed Madhouse: From Baghdad to New Orleans – Sordid Secrets and Strange Tales of a White House Gone Wild.” The bestselling book, signed. “Great fun,” says the New Yorker. $75 min donation. $100 Hardbound.

And less: Make a donation to the Palast Investigative Fund in someone’s name – and we’ll send them a thank you card. You get a tax donation – and ‘just the facts, ma’am.’
100% of proceeds go to support the staff and expenses of the Palast investigative fund.
Unhappy times shouldn’t stop a happy holiday. My best wishes to you and your family.
(I’m on my way to South America with cameraman Rick Rowley – and hope someone reading this will pay for our tickets to get home! I’m not kidding.)
