  2. Thanks for your donation to Newswire21.org on Spot.Us. It matters. We’re constantly covering stories that would never be told otherwise, and we’re empowering citizens to report news on their own.

    I like your web site and all that you’ve done. Very ambitious!

    Let me know if you run out of story ideas. Unfortunately, we seem to have a surplus.

    Cheers, Tom
