🏆 Who can spread the most fact-based optimism?
In January we will launch a referral program for this newsletter. If you get friends and colleagues to subscribe, you help us with our mission of spreading fact-based optimistic news and balancing the negative bias in other media.
As a thank you for doing that we want to give you small rewards. If you refer one friend you get X, if you refer three friends you get Y, and so on.
We are now thinking about what kind of rewards would be suitable. If you have any ideas, please send them to us.
You do that by replying to this email. I read all incoming emails from the community.
🎁 Still looking for Christmas presents?
Give a year of fact-based optimism. You help us with our mission and you give someone a great start to 2021.
🎄 And since it is Christmas you'll get a 50% discount - $50 instead of $100 for a full year.
Psst! It is allowed to buy Christmas gifts for yourself..!
