Dear friend,

This has truly been a crazy year. During tough times, it helps to have someone to turn to. This year, Wyomingites turned to Cowboy State Daily in record numbers of subscribers.

We anticipated your questions and we provided the answers. You asked us about COVID-19, hospital capacities, school issues, government tax proposals, remote learning, the failing economy, and yes, the 2020 election, too. 

Our staff anticipated and answered these questions by publishing over 2,000 stories, photos, videos,  and providing a daily newsletter to thousands. That journalism helped thousands of people better understand how our state’s policies would impact their lives. 

Thanks for helping us continue our mission of keeping Wyomingites informed. In a year when information literally saved lives, we came through. Your loyalty means so much. 

Cowboy State Daily is owned by YOU.  And with ownership comes responsibility.  We are reaching out to our 10,600-plus subscribers and asking you to donate now.  If you do it before Dec. 31, it is tax-deductible on your IRS return.

With a crucial legislative session ahead of us in 2021, Wyoming people’s need for quality journalism remains at an all-time high. Will you chip in to help our nonprofit newsroom prepare for the year ahead?

We love it when people tell us how much they like Cowboy State Daily. Here are some examples:

Joe Glode in Saratoga says: “I sure like your daily news feed.  It sure beats Cable!”

Judy S. in Buffalo says: “I sure enjoy Cowboy State Daily. I look forward to it every day.”

Dan T. of Centennial says: “Your updates on the Mullen Fire have been particularly important since I was one of the people who got evacuation notices. Thank God for the snow. Keep up the good work and I plan to donate annually.”

Mary Paxson made a nice donation and said: “I love Cowboy State Daily. I love the writing especially. I think you are the last stand of journalism in Wyoming! I do enjoy the news along with the humor of the delivery.”

Janice S. of Jackson heaped a bunch of praise on Cowboy State Daily. She said: “I have enjoyed the daily briefings of happenings around the state, which helps me feel more connected with the goings-on in Wyoming. I am a Wyoming local and have lived in several Wyoming towns.  I also enjoy the bit of humor and lightheartedness that each report bring – the daily bears and the daily dancing men. Thank you for the tasteful humor which adds a chuckle to my morning and thank you for providing updates on news around our beautiful state and the people of Wyoming. I‘ve recommended that friends and family sign up to receive the Cowboy State Daily!”

These are just five of so many wonderful comments and notes we have received. Our motto: Don’t Just Watch Us Grow – Join Us!”

Whether you can chip in with a donation or with your continued attention, we’re so grateful for your support and wishing you and yours a wonderful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

To folks who do not want to use a credit card, please send your check to Cowboy State Daily, box 900, Lander, WY 82520.  Thank you!
