YOU CAN SAVE POLITICAL CARTOONS AND CAGLE.COM!
I want to thank all of our Heroes whose support makes Cagle.com possible! Since we dropped advertising on Cagle.com a few years ago, contributions from readers have covered the basic expenses of our site. We really appreciate your support.
Our "Heroes," who contribute to Cagle.com, each get a subscription to our daily, Heroes email newsletter that includes all the cartoons that are delivered to newspapers, before they appear in the newspapers. You also get new articles and news about the editorial cartooning profession, along with our profound appreciation.
The newspaper industry remains the major publisher of editorial cartoons, and newspapers are continuing a steep decline. Traditional employee positions for editorial cartoonists have all but disappeared. There are few paying clients on the internet, and the rest of the publishing industry is also in decline.
It may be that our unique profession is doomed, but we're dedicated to hanging on and doing what we love for as long as we can. In addition to our Cagle.com site, we operate as a newspaper syndicate; we sell the work of the CagleCartoonists to appear on newspaper editorial pages – but the free, Cagle.com site is just for readers. Cagle.com is ambitious, constantly updating with the newest cartoons – and we need the support of of our readers, our "Heroes" to keep Cagle.com up, running and free for all.
Cagle.com will continue to be available now, and in the future, only with your renewed support!
If you love our art form – if you appreciate images that can make you laugh or cry, that can speak truth to power, and can bring crowds to protest in the streets around the world – NOW is the time to support Cagle.com –be a HERO!
Remember that only our contributors get special, daily, cartoon email newsletters with all of our new cartoons (and some occasional cartoon surprises, only for Heroes). E-mail us at [email protected] with any questions!
Please make a monthly contribution for our long-term support, or make a one time contribution. Anything you can contribute is much needed and appreciated! Cagle.com's future is in your hands!
