We should all be looking forward to a hopeful and productive 2020, Chinese Year of the Metal Rat. I know I am, pictured above on the Great Wall outside Beijing. WE CANNOT LET THE BASTARDS GET US DOWN!

Happy Double Twenty, Chinese Year of the Metal Rat, to all friends, fans and followers of China Rising Radio Sinoland. Over the holidays, some of you really went the distance to support my work, realizing it takes me 8-12 hours to research, write, re-re-re-rewrite, check references, find visuals, record and edit video and sound podcasts, upload it all here, then announce the post via email and on all my social media.
Afterwards, when people email me or leave a comment, I go out of my way to respond.
Recently, three fans really showed exceptional financial support, whom I’ll call Big Kahunas!
Cancer Capitalism contributed $109, with the reply, “Burn, capitalism, burn”. What a great name handle, line and trust me, Cancer Capitalism, I’ve got the matches and gasoline right here at CRRS! If you have an email, I’d love to say hello and send you one of my books.
Xi F. sent $100. For this size donation, I offered to send Xi one of my China Trilogy books, autographed, but they passed.
Gary R. also went supersize with $100. He took me up on my offer and at my cost, I sent him one of my China Trilogy books, signed dedicated to him. We also had a nice talk on Skype, as I really enjoyed hearing his recount of a recent trip to China and Japan.
Tony L. shouted out CRRS with $50 in support. We exchanged emails. Tony really appreciates me telling the truth about China, its amazing history, people and their unstoppable progress, not the CIA-MI6 Big Lie Propaganda Machine projectile vomit in the mainstream media.
Mark M. sent $50.00. I emailed him with profuse thanks.
Charles T. dug deep and sent $10.00. We have since exchanged a few emails.
Clara W. supported my work with $50.00. She said, “Keep China Rising Radio Sinoland Sailing On”! I emailed a boatload of thanks.
At $10 an hour for all my work here, these fans helped produce 4.6 articles with video and audio podcasts.
MANY NEW YEAR THANKS TO ALL OF THE ABOVE CHINA RISING RADIO SINOLAND BACKERS!!
Friends, fans and followers of CRRS, please match any of the above contributions and help me earn at least minimum wage, to fight for global social justice and tell the REAL China story, which must be heard, if we are to avoid World War III.
As well, when people validate all my hard work, it really inspire me, lifts my spirits, and my poor wife, who sees me in front of my computer for days on end, is assuaged. Like you, we live in a market economy world and now both being retired, have the same daily and medical expenses as everybody else.
The easiest way is via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bank cards can also be used through yellow “Donate” portal below. Or, feel free to use the FundRazr link above and below. Thank you.
Sixteen years on the streets, living and working with the people of China, Jeff
