Dear {contact.first_name}

Happy Holidays! Thank you for being part of New Media Rights in 2009!

2010 will be another great year of helping citizen media makers understand their rights online, as well as providing the equipment and tools needed to speak, create, and participate online. We are excited to announce a new partnership with Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society and its Citizen Media Law Project, which have invited New Media Rights to be part of the newly launched Online Media Legal Network.  The OMLN is a network of organizations that "provide pro bono legal assistance to qualifying online journalism ventures and other digital media creators." 

Remember, as always, we are here to help you with questions about your legal rights online, free studio space, an editing computer and studio equipment, so call us today to utilize these services or just contact us and let us know how we can better serve you!

There's more details on how we'll be working to protect and foster grassroots creativity in 2010 below, but we'd like to take a moment and let you know how you can support us for the exciting year ahead. 

First, please keep in mind that our work is supported from donations by individuals like you, so please consider donating to us this holiday season.  A gift of $25, or whatever you can give, will be a huge help in the coming year.

Please connect with us on social media, including our Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Youtube. We invite you to give @newmediarights a shoutout, or write a review on our wall of your experience with New Media Rights.
