Dear Faithful Readers,
I am writing to ask for your help.
Loveland Magazine continues to break news for our community, and the other “main street” news outlets have become some of our most faithful readers. Many of our stories are picked up by the other local press, and over the years they have then gone national. My ego always smiles when we get a story first because of being where other outlets never go, or just because of some lucky, sometimes persistent digging. But, what does it mean to you? First and foremost, if it hadn’t been for Loveland Magazine, it more often than not means that you would have never been in the know at all if it wasn’t for OUR persistent, tenacious, dogged digging.
We can brag that Loveland stories have gone regional or national after the big guys first read about it in Loveland Magazine, but, again that means nothing to you, except that they would have never reported these things if not first making their discovery on Loveland Magazine. USA Today recently reported Loveland news they first discovered right here on this page you are reading. Our stories often show up on CNN.com.
We have become a community place of sharing your news, and a place where that news is discussed and debated. No other community the size of Loveland in the tri-state has their own independent on-line news paper.
We have become your “Voice” the community Voice.
Ever since our inception eight years ago, we have been able to make what I believe are positive change in all of your lives and in the community life we all live. The news we share about your charity events, your religious news, your school news, our bragging about the fantastic things you and your children are doing have a direct benefit to each of you and to all of us as a community.
There is so much more we want to accomplish in 2013, however, today's tough economic conditions make it difficult for Loveland Magazine to meet those needs and to grow - without help from people like you.
I would be ever so grateful if you would donate an amount between $5 - $50 addressed to Loveland Magazine, 529 Main Street, Loveland, Ohio 45140. Or, use your credit card or PayPal account using the form below.
Do you have time today to write a check or spend the few moments it takes to use the on-line form below?
