Newspaper publishing is a brutal business, and when you’re a tiny newspaper for an ethnic group that now maintains ties because they enjoy doing so, not because they have to, it’s an even more difficult business. The brave new generation of Norwegian American staff have launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to give them capital to keep going through a particularly tight spot. They saved the paper from folding before, and we believe that they can do it again. Ingebretsen’s has supported the Norwegian American for decades through our advertising and we want to give them another boost by letting all of you know that you can help keep the presses rolling.
The writers and editors of the Norwegian American are a clever lot, so we’ll let them tell their story, what they need, how you can help and how they will thank donors: click here.
