Last Wednesday, we launched The Correspondent, a movement for unbreaking news.

We want to offer readers an antidote to breaking news and raise $2.5 million with them by December 14.

If we are successful, we will start publishing in Spring 2019. If not, we will refund the money.

We’re now five days in and thrilled to share that more than 11,378 founding members from 87 countries have already joined:

That’s on pace with our first world-record setting crowdfunding campaign with De Correspondent five years ago. That record — 18,933 backers in a journalism crowdfunding campaign — still stands.

But we still have a long way to go.

So, if you’re also in need of an antidote to breaking news, join our movement at thecorrespondent.com today.
