AN OPEN LETTER TO ASAMNEWS READERS
With the rise of anti-Asian sentiment, never has there been a greater need for a platform such as AsAmNews. We must remain vigilant in documenting this hate and putting the spotlight on efforts to defeat it.
For eight years, AsAmNews has operated 7 days a week, 365 days a year with the help of an all-volunteer staff to bring you news coverage of the Asian American Pacific Islander community.
We have strived to fill a void left by mainstream media and tabloids to bring you a wide range of stories with an emphasis on Bad Ass Asians who break stereotypes and contribute to the betterment of society.
We have also served as a training ground for countless interns over the years who have gone on to work in both mainstream and alternative media as well as provide their talents to numerous Asian American non-profits.
In our entire existence, we have never asked for contributions, but with the rising cost of running this site, we are now in need of help to keep AsAmNews going strong.
Anyone who contributes $20 or more, will be added to our Bad Ass Asian Wall of Fame.
If you contribute $40, you will also have the option of receiving a Bad Ass Asian t-shirt as a gift for your support.
These t-shirts are inscribed with our new Bad Ass Asian logo on the front and our AsAmNews logo displayed on the back.
These t-shirts are in limited supply and will make a unique holiday gift for a friend or loved one. They are available in the adult sizes of small, medium, large and x-large. To ensure delivery before the holidays, you must act now.
For a contribution of $80, you will have the option of receiving two Bad Ass Asian t-shirts as an expression of our appreciation.
For a contribution of $100, you can get three Bad Ass Asian T-shirts.
As of July 14, 2021, we have just 11 adult smalls, 14 adults mediums, 10 adult large and 19 adult x-large remaining. This is our third and final shipment. Once these are gone, we have no plans to order any additional T-shirts.
If you have any questions, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether you decide to contribute or not, you are always welcomed to send us your comments and questions about our coverage. We always appreciate feedback from our readers.
Contributions are not tax deductible.
We thank you for your continued support.
With much appreciation,
AsAmNews Founder & Editor
