Local news needs your support


We are a local Spanish online news outlet serving the Spanish speaking community across the state of South Carolina.

During the COVID-19 pandemic we have lost advertisers and other forms of income due to stay at home orders and closings of non-essential businesses, putting us at risk of closing down a vital service in our state.

Readership and viewership has increased by over 400% in the last month, but our funds are near depleted. Like many other publishers we also use automated advertising services through Google. However, the payout for that is pennies per every thousand views, not enough to sustain our organization.

We are working around the clock to bring vital information to our audience as quickly as possible. In addition to our independent news gathering, we are also focused on serving our underserved community by providing English to Spanish translation of emergency press conferences from local and state government officials in real-time.

Beyond our news coverage we answer dozens of questions via our digital channels to meet the critical needs of our community.

If you believe local news is critical for you then I ask you to help us keep our Spanish speaking neighbors informed.

Your donation will help us continue delivering important information that will help people stay safe not only during the pandemic but also when severe weather strikes.

I want to close by thanking you in advance and asking you to share this fundraiser with your network. Thanks to local media foundation your donations through this page are tax-deductible.

We are committed to our community but we need your help.
