24 hours until our annual #AmericaAnniversary!

Less than 24 hours away until our annual #AmericaAnniversary digital giving day! Thank you to those who already made a gift. Let’s keep that momentum going!

For 111 years, America has led the conversation about faith and culture, and in these uncertain times, we are here for you when you need it most. And tomorrow we need you.

Last year, in just one day, over 500 donors in 43 different states and countries around the world supported our giving day. In these challenging times help us celebrate hope by making a donation this year.

Because of the generosity of people like you, we are able to bring faith and hope into your home and a sense of community and family into your life. 
 
As you rely on us now more than ever before, we continue to tell the stories that matter most—in print, digital, audio and video. We are committed to reaching you where you are by producing more content that helps you navigate these difficult days, including a special collection of coronavirus coverage on our website, increased coverage of the Vatican and additional spiritual resources.

To be one of the first donors who help us celebrate hope, make your gift early at americamedia.org/donate. No gift is too big or too small.

Thank you for doing what you can tomorrow on our #AmericaAnniversary. Every gift counts.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
