Retired Army officer Walter Olson walked up to me at a recent Lander Rotary meeting, handed me a $100 bill and said: “That’s for Cowboy State Daily. Keep up the good work!”
Now that is the kind of support we are getting from people all across the state.
During our spring donor drive, we have also heard so many wonderful comments from our readers, much like Walter.
Shauna Roberts of Cody sent a beautiful card with the inscription: “Thank you for the Wyoming News – just the facts – no spin!”
Marianne Bidart says: “Thank you for all the bear stories I am looking forward to hearing more about 399 and her four cubs. How about a feature on Wyoming Ranch dogs at work or being silly? This all makes me smile and have a laugh – we all need it. Many thanks to all at the Cowboy State Daily.”
Up in Buffalo, Brenda Bayliss writes: “Thanks for the news and keeping me in the loop!”
And finally, Linda Sue Golding of Dayton writes: “Keep up the good work!”
And now during our Spring Donor Drive, the donations are rolling in, which helps us bring you the news every day in two big ways: First, we send you this daily newsletter which we like to call Wyoming’s Morning News and second, with our big web page, which is updated all day long with statewide stories.
Because we have so many subscribers — lots of you folks do not realize you can go to www.cowboystatedaily.com at any time and see the news updated all day long. You can even scroll down the site and catch up on the news for the past week.
Most of our donors donate by clicking on the “donate” button and paying by credit card. Unfortunately, this does not allow for comments. Thus, if you want to comment, please email them to email@example.com or send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate hearing from you.
We have had over 400 responses and the checks and credit card payments are coming in.
During tough times like we saw in 2020, it helps to have someone to turn to. In the past year, Wyomingites turned to Cowboy State Daily in record numbers. We anticipated your questions and we provided the answers.
Thanks for helping us continue our mission of keeping Wyomingites informed. In a year when information literally saved lives, we came through, thanks in no small part to your loyalty, which means so much.
Cowboy State Daily is owned by YOU. We are a 501 C 3 non-profit corporation. With ownership comes responsibility. We are reaching out to our 13,000-plus subscribers and asking you to make a tax-deductible donation to help us do our job.
“Don’t just watch us grow – join us” has certainly come true this past year as our subscriber list has surged.
Cowboy State Daily continues to grow. We have been adding 1,000 new subscribers per month for the past year. That pace is actually increasing this year.
Whether you chip in with a donation or with your continued attention, we’re so grateful for your support.
