You Can Make a Difference
Help WantToKnow.info Take Off
Dear WantToKnow.info friends,
PEERS and WantToKnow.info are making a big difference, and you can too. WantToKnow.info has received over 2.7 million visits this year, averaging more than 7,500 a day, an increase of 24% over last year. Our email messages are now sent to over 12,500 subscribers around the world. They are also widely forwarded to thousands more and posted on numerous websites worldwide. And 50 of our webpages have now received over 100,000 visits since they were first posted.
Caring people around the world every day are having their eyes opened to deeper realities and being inspired to make a difference by our work. As a result, many are now taking action to play their part in bringing about major positive change on our planet. Key influential people have even written books and created websites based on the powerful information available at WantToKnow.info.
Yet for all of our accomplishments over the 10 years since WantToKnow.info first started, we are still operating on a shoestring budget of about $60,000/year with a very small staff. I am the only one working full time on all of this. We pay Tod and our tech wiz Andrey small amounts for their invaluable work, and a few volunteers have made significant contributions, yet that's it. We're hoping to secure some good grants, but so far have not had success with this.
This skeleton staff with a tiny budget continues to have a huge impact in our world. Just imagine what we could do with even just one more full-time staff person! You can help to make this happen.
Of our over 12,500 subscribers and millions of website visitors, about 700 caring individuals have given donations this year. Thank you so much to each and every one of you who did contribute, and special thanks to the nearly 120 supporters who are giving valuable monthly contributions. Yet we really need more of you to support us in the great work. We especially welcome monthly donations.
"No single website has had a bigger impact on my personal transformation than the site WantToKnow.info, because while it has a plethora of information which once frightened and angered me, it also showed me a way to alleviate my fear through personal service to others. Thank you for your inspiration to go beyond my fear and accept what is, especially when I don't like it." ~~ Laila S.
We are all used to getting information free on the Internet. This is only possible because most websites are loaded with advertisements from corporate sponsors. Not only are these advertisements bothersome, they often support the corrupt corporate hierarchy we are trying to expose and change.
If we are going to change the old greed-based paradigm filled with annoying ads and censored news to one that provides unbiased information and supports all of us in transforming our lives and world together, I suspect each of us is going to have to shift our way of thinking around money and find a sense of joy in making donations to support the causes we believe will make a difference.
I have no doubt that with a full-time staff of just a few people, PEERS and WantToKnow.info could really take off and become a much more major presence and source of positive change in our world. Yet as no volunteers have come forward in any significant numbers, we need your financial support to make this happen.
Are you willing to challenge any feelings of scarcity around giving and find joy and satisfaction in helping us to grow, to thrive, and to build a better world in an even bigger way? Please help us, particularly if you've never donated before. Will you step up and make a difference?
Please consider supporting us, even if you can only give $5. Many small contributions add up to make up a significant part of our budget. You know that the information we send you is worth much more than a meal out in a restaurant, so why not give us that much to help us really take off? Monthly donations are particularly helpful in allowing us to plan for the future.
To send a check or money order, please make your donation out to PEERS and mail it to:
1607 Francisco St.
Berkeley, CA 94703 USA

"Thank you guys for your website. I've been researching this stuff for months and have been disappointed by most websites on the subject. They either go too far, pull up information that makes them look crazy, or quite simply don't realize what the solution is. Fighting negativity with negativity is pointless. Your site is a beautiful work of organization, the best videos, the real solutions. You are the only site I've donated to." ~~ Quinten C.
To see how much impact we are already having, I invite you to imagine that you are a high school or college student writing a research paper. Let's say your theme is 9/11. Try going to Google and typing in "9/11 information" or "9/11 facts." Or maybe you are researching energy breakthroughs. Plug in the words "new energy sources" or "new energy information." WantToKnow.info is usually listed in the top three out of hundreds of millions of results in these common searches.
So you follow the link to one of these WantToKnow.info webpages where you find an incredible wealth of amazing information and a window into the hidden underbelly of global politics to help you write that paper. You find we provide links to verifiable sources you can use in your paper to support every statement you take from our website.
Your teacher will be amazed and impressed and might even have his or her eyes opened. And you and your teacher just might be interested then in exploring some of the other fascinating topics we have. We occasionally get emails from students doing exactly this. And I have no doubt that many students and teachers are using our website in this way and not contacting us.
"You inspired me today. I took the liberty of using several of your articles as the basis for a project for the College Statistics Class I teach ... also a sneaky way of introducing WantToKnow.info to my unsuspecting and unaware students. This should be a real wake up call! THANK YOU!!!!!!!" ~~ Kathleen G."
From our website analytics, we know that since 2006 over 250,000 people have searched for the term "9/11 facts" and then visited WantToKnow.info's excellent page on this. That one webpage has had more than one million views and well over 100,000 people have recommended it on social networking websites like facebook.
WantToKnow.info is listed #1 in many thousands of Internet searches. For a few other examples, try searching "banking corruption," "inspirational news articles," "mind control articles," "UFO facts," and "short inspiring poems." These are just a few of the many terms for which we often come up #1.
Over half of WantToKnow.info visits come from search engines. Just imagine how many educated and influential people who know nothing of the major cover-ups are finding this eye-opening material and then diving further into WantToKnow.info. Powerful stuff!
As ever more people start directing a small portion of their earnings into organizations like PEERS and others that are doing powerfully transformative work in our world on shoestring budgets, we can make an even bigger difference. When we individually and collectively transform our feelings of scarcity around money and life in general, I am convinced we will see some big changes and a lot more abundance for all in our world. Thanks for whatever support you are able to offer.
"I am very impressed with your web site. It is the most complete, well structured and positive information center that I have found on the net. It would be wonderful to translate your site." ~~ Bernadette L. in Germany
May this coming new year of 2014 bring lots of rich transformation and ever more love and meaningful connection into our lives and our world. And thank you for the part you are playing in all of this. Together, I have no doubt that we are making a big difference.
Note: Many of our webpages have been translated into other languages, and large portions of the website have been translated into Dutch at the popular website WantToKnow.nl. And for an inspiring description of how WantToKnow.info got started, click here.
"I really appreciate the informative emails that I receive, both highlighting important news that is left out of mainstream media and positive steps folks are taking to addressing the many ills our community faces. I'm impressed by your ability to address the negative without becoming jaded or cynical. I'm really thankful that you are able to juggle all this and still remain positive. It really touches on the model that can set things in positive directions - that we can't respond to negative patterns with more negative patterns, but rather with positive energy and hope and confidence in the love available within our world. Blessings on your ongoing work." ~~ Ross R.
