TokyoProgressive makes available material from other websites without profit in order to help further spread news and commentary that is avoided by most mainstream media. Often, news sites delete their content after a certain period, and websites do simply stop existing. Also, our purpose is not to complete with other websites, particularly progressive media which deserves your support. Please support those websites and organizations if you feel they represent your own values and opinions. In this case, you can subscribe to Japan Focus here:
TokyoProgressive has, over the course of its 20 plus years of existence incurred hosting and design related costs that come out of pocket. Archiving our articles and moving first to Drupal in 2008 and later to WordPress in 2016 incurred costs of approximately 4000 dollars. To date, over the same 20-year period, we have received donations amounting to about 200 dollars. We now have mostly hosting related costs, which are not substantial, but at the same time, our income is minimal since moving from Tokyo after the 2011 earthquake and nuclear disasters. If you feel you can donate even a token amount, we would appreciate it. Alternatively, please donate to the websites and organizations from which our articles are sourced.
