What does it take for an independent magazine to succeed? A village! That truth is poignantly apparent at year-end as your generous donations and gift subscriptions pour in and all of us at YES! hold our breath in hopes that the books will balance. Thanks to you they did, setting us up for a strong 2007. My heart goes out in gratitude—for your generosity and for the affirmation it reflects. Your gifts speak of your unflinching belief that together we truly can build a just and sustainable world. On behalf of the board and staff of YES!, I send heartfelt thanks to all the members of the beautiful village that make YES! possible.
