Thanks, everyone! The pledge drive is now officially over

I’m as happy as a capybara at a spa with a lemon on its head!

Big thanks to those who came through in the last couple of days with donations, and to everyone who donated during this pledge drive. (As well as to those of you who donate monthly and between pledge drives.)

We didn’t quite reach the goal I set for this pledge drive, but we came very very close. So I’m going to bring this extended pledge drive to a close. Though if you haven’t donated yet and want to get in on the action, the button below will take care of all your needs.

donate button

As I’ve said before, I love doing this blog (often despite the subject matter) and I’m glad you find it valuable in some ways, whether you’re keeping up with the current state of inceldom or simply enjoying some hearty MGTOW cooking. (Vicariously, I hope; those guys don’t seem to understand how to safely cook meat.)

Thanks again to all who donated — and all of you who give to this blog in non-financial ways, whether it’s sending me story tips, warning me about trolls in the comments, sharing posts on social media, or whatever else you may do. And thanks to those who keep the comments lively and informative.

Here are some more capybara gifs, just because.

Pledge Drive: Extended Mix

Almost there!

I’m extending the pledge drive a few more days because, unfortunately, the donations so far have not been enough to cover my basic expenses much less the cost of some unfortunate but necessary dental work. We’re only about 2/3 of the way there yet.

You can donate by clicking the button below (even if you don’t have a PayPal account).

donate button

Many of you have already donated, some quite generously, and I am extremely grateful for your support (as I am for the support of you monthly donors). But if you haven’t donated yet, please do! I realize that some of you have been hit hard by the pandemic and can’t afford to give now. But if you’re doing ok and can possibly swing a donation, I sure would appreciate it.

You’ll be providing a lifeline for me and for this blog, a unique and independent media outlet that delivers (almost) daily coverage of some of the worst people out there in our current political hellscape. All without ads and hectoring popups.

As I’ve said before, I love doing this blog, and I’m grateful it’s connected with so many of you. I could not have kept We Hunted the Mammoth going for nearly ten years without your help, and I hope that with your continued support we can keep the blog running smoothly for many more years.

Thanks again!

Pledge drive: Urgent update

The pledge drive is in trouble, and I really need your help.

Though many of you have already donated – and I can’t thank you enough for that – the total so far is considerably less than I need to cover my expenses. So if you haven’t donated yet, please do.

donate button

I know this is an awkward time to ask for money. But if you can spare even a few dollars, you’ll be providing a lifeline to an independent, ad-free blog that deflates some of the most toxic shit out there in the “Red Pill” world. And you’ll enable me to keep serving up daily posts without worrying constantly about how to cover the next rent check.

Or insurance premium. Most of my money problems are due to the US’s mess of a health care system – I spend more on medical expenses than I do on rent. A recent trip to the emergency room for searing back pain didn’t exactly help my financial position.

I’m expecting things to improve in 2020. I’m working on building up my freelance writing business again, and I’ll be unveiling a new project soon. But right now, frankly, I need all the help I can get.

I love doing this blog, and I’m forever grateful that it brings something to so many people’s lives. You folks – pledge drive donors and regular supporters — have enabled me to keep We Hunted the Mammoth going for nine years, and I hope that together we can keep it going for the tenth year and beyond.

We Hunted the Mammoth Pledge Drive! End of the Decade Edition

Today marks the start of the third and final fund drive of 2019 for We Hunted the Mammoth. Let’s close out the decade on a high note! By which I mean: please donate if you possibly can.

NOTE: The PayPal links should be working now!

donate button

If you read this blog regularly, making a donation is a bit like giving a present to yourself. We Hunted the Mammoth owes its continued existence solely to donations from people like you. There are no ads, no secret troves of Soros cash behind this blog. I’m just a guy with a couple of cats in a messy apartment. (And frankly, the cats aren’t much help.)

All you need to do is click on the little button, so here it is again. You don’t need a PayPal account; a credit card is fine.

donate button

If you want to avoid PayPal, you can Venmo me at David-Futrelle-1. (If neither way works for you, email me at dfutrelle at gmail and we can figure something out.)

If it’s easier for you, consider donating on a monthly basis. Even $5 or $10 a month can make a big difference to the financial stability of the blog (and of me).

If you can’t swing a donation right now, there are other ways to contribute – offering tips, publicizing posts on social media, offering technical advice, providing insights in the comments sections, and so on.

Thanks in advance, and thanks as well to those who already donate monthly or between the pledge drives. Sustained support like yours is crucial to keeping We Hunted the Mammoth going!

Urgent fundraising appeal

The time has arrived once again for that several-times-yearly ritual of the pledge drive, where I come to you, loyal readers, with hat in hand to ask for the donations that will keep me, and this blog, running. And this pledge drive, like the last, is an urgent one.

At the time of the last pledge drive, seven months ago, I was in pretty dire straits, facing a financial crisis that could have left me unable to pay my rent and other basic expenses. You all came through in a huge way; I was and still am humbled by your generosity. It was incredibly heartening to discover how much We Hunted the Mammoth means to you. And it’s heartening as well to see how many more of you have begun contributing between pledge drives, many monthly. A very large thank you to all of you!

Unfortunately, I’m not out of the woods yet, and many of the same issues make this pledge drive nearly as urgent as the last one. The main reason? For most of the nine years of its existence, I heavily subsidized this blog out of my 401(k) savings. But those savings are gone. And I’m still burdened with oversized medical bills and ongoing medical expenses. I’m working on ramping up freelance work, but it’s taking longer than I’d hoped.

If you want to keep this blog (and its owner) running smoothly, please, please donate if you possibly can; or (if you already donate), send along a little (or a lot) more than usual.

Here’s that button again.

You don’t need a PayPal account to donate using this button; credit cards are fine. And if you want to avoid PayPal altogether, email me at dfutrelle@gmail.com and I’ll let you know how. I will also be putting up a long-awaited Patreon page soon as well. THANKS!

If you can’t afford a donation right now, there are of course many other ways to support the blog. I love getting tips from readers. I love it when people share my posts on social media or pass them along to friends. If you have other ideas or special talents you can offer, let me know!

Once again, thank you so much for your support!

Emergency Fundraising Appeal UPDATE, in the form of a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU

Dear readers,

I honestly don’t know what to say! I’m awed and humbled by your amazing response to the emergency fundraising appeal I put up yesterday. You’ve pulled me back from the financial brink and provided me with the resources I need to get through the next several months while I work to put the blog (and myself) on a more solid financial footing for the long term.

Huge thanks! Pledge drive wrapup

Celebration time at WHTM Headquarters

By David Futrelle

And so ends this somewhat extended pledge drive.

I’d like to offer a big “thanks” to everyone who’s donated. When I checked in with you all a few days ago, donations were coming in slowly and it looked like they would fall far short of what I need to keep this blog going. But thanks to a wave of donations since then we’ve gotten very close. If a few more of you can donate over the next few days, we’ll get there!
