Dear ZENIT Reader,
Sometimes numbers speak louder than words. Here are some ZENIT numbers.
7 language editions of daily news services (English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian and Arabic)
17 types of services published each week
25,300 articles published over the past year
2,350 services distributed over the past year
Over 9,000 documents that can be found on www.zenit.org
Over 500,000 private subscribers who receive ZENIT by e-mail
About 30,000 media worldwide that publish ZENIT (including radio stations and diocesan and parish bulletins)
400,000 e-mail messages that go out every day from ZENIT
1,000,000 e-mail messages that are sent on certain days to our subscribers
13 servers to manage the Web site and e-mail
160 distribution lists used to send messages to readers
130 e-mail boxes used by the ZENIT team
40 staff members (including writers, editors, translators and technicians)
14 nationalities of ZENIT staff members (American, Argentine, Australian, Belgian, Brazilian, English, French, German, Irish, Italian, Lebanese, Mexican, Perivian, Spanish)
$350,000 the amount needed from our English-speaking private readers
Less than $3.00 per year per person, if $350,000 is divided among the 120,000 English-speaking private readers.
$296,000 the amount obtained so far in this year's fund-raising campaign thanks to the generosity of our English-edition readers
4,600 the number of English-edition readers who have contributed to the annual fund-raising campaign
about $70, the average donation received
770 the number of $70 donations needed to achieve the goal of this year's campaign
So, we would need 770 readers to send $70 for us to reach our goal.
Could you be one of those 770 readers?
ZENIT has no other source of revenue. Without the support of its readers it can neither exist nor grow.
We are counting on your help!
To send your donation:
As in previous years, we hope that these last days of the campaign will prove decisive and that the number of donations will markedly increase.
Staff members dedicate themselves 100% to ZENIT, but it would be in vain without the support of our readers.
We are most grateful for any help you can give us, large or small.
With best wishes,
The ZENIT Team
