Steven and I are very grateful to all of the sponsors, advertisers, and especially you, our loyal readers, for helping us win the $25K Chicago Community Trust post. With the $50,470 raised from donations and ad sales, the campaign raised a total of $75,470, enough to fund our next year of publication. We'll have a full thank-you post later today, but huge thanks again to everybody who helped make this happen!
