Day #11 – Eleven days into our Fundraiser and all is quiet. And that’s not good. But it’s a new week and our appeals continue – we’re serious about what we do – we’re serious about offering the best of history, news and music, and not filling it with click-bait, come-ons and empty articles. I’ve been to a lot of sites – very big on promises, but no delivery. Past Daily isn’t about any of that. Past Daily is about useful information and important history – all those elements which make up our society and our world today. Issues and events you may have missed the first time around, or never knew about in the first place. You can look at it one of two ways – the more popular; “insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result” or the less popular; “studying the past in order to know the present”. Both are valid, although the insanity definition seems more apt these days. You would be surprised just how many things have occurred over and over, over the decades – how many of those things have been issues never really addressed. It’s not my job to alarm, but inform – to remind you there is a history to most events, a past to most things – very little is brand new, uncharted territory – and we either learn from those mistakes or we repeat them until we don’t.
But all that is by way of saying; if you don’t know the history behind something, you aren’t going to know if its been done before, and how it turned out, if it turned out at all. That’s where Past Daily comes in.
We do this every day – putting up historic news, interviews, events – those popular culture parts of our society we had wondered, or forgotten about, and make them available to you to listen, learn from and refer to. It’s an ongoing process – thousands of hours of news and events need to be put up, and we’re doing it every day – but it’s hard when you’re in a perpetual state of multi-tasking.
That’s why I’m appealing for your Tax Deductible contributions – to help continue this on-going process – to offer you all the history you remembered or forgot – or never knew about in the first place. For the price of a cup of coffee you can be part of it – part of that group of people who are making a difference. And it doesn’t matter how much or how little you chip in – your contribution is vital and its needed and it’s gratefully received. I’m asking you for your help and consideration. If you like what we’re doing, let us know by lending your support.
