Some time back, I promised that if you donated to Lawfare before year's end, each dollar of contribution would constitute a separate chance to win neato Lawfare prizes. The year having ended, Cody, Wells, and I sat down the other day and did a little drawing using a handy online random number generator. If you've won something, you'll be hearing from us. Our grand prize winner, who gets dinner with an available Lawfare writer of her choice, is Grace Suarez of San Francisco.

Given that it's December 29, it's not much of a promise to say that this will be my last fundraising solicitation post of the year. That said, I promise. But I wanted to remind those of you who had not yet made a contribution to Lawfare in response to my earlier pleas that there is still time.
Editor's Note: If you have already contributed to Lawfare in response to my appeals, please ignore this post. For those who have not yet done so, and you know who you are, I am reposting the appeal, and will occasionally do so again between now and the end of the year. Please considering making a donation of any size, particularly if you use the site regularly.

Yesterday, I posted an appeal for reader support---one that should make you feel all warm and fuzzy about donating to Lawfare:
The other day, I listened to a fascinating episode of Freakonomics Radio featuring a lengthy discussion with a noted economist about what actually works in non-profit fundraising. I listened to this with, I suspect, more-than-average attention, as we have been working hard recently to raise money to grow Lawfare.
It's that time of year where law students buy textbooks. If you're buying textbooks, please consider doing so using the Amazon search box on Lawfare. Every time you buy things using that box, Lawfare gets financial support from Amazon. When you buy big-ticket items like expensive text books, the money actually adds up. It's a great way to support Lawfare without spending any additional money.
I return from Iceland to find that untold numbers of apparently-sane people are pouring ice water over their heads to raise money for a disease of which many of them had only the dimmest prior awareness. And I think to myself: Why is nobody pouring water over his head to raise money for Lawfare?
Thanks to some heroic contributors over the weekend, we are nearly halfway to having raised the funds to redesign and rebuild Lawfare. If you are one of the people who has made this possible, many thanks. If you are a regular reader and have not yet contributed to the site, please consider that we are only halfway to where we need to be---and that one of things we are missing is a contribution from you.
