Dear ForumDaily readers!

Thank you for staying with us and trusting! Over the past four years, we have received a lot of grateful feedback from readers who have been helped by our materials to arrange life after moving to the USA, to get a job or education, to find housing or to arrange a child in kindergarten. We are glad to help you during the immigration period, which can be quite difficult.

Now we want to ask you for support. Quality journalism is quite expensive. After a sharp reduction in advertising revenues from Facebook, our revenues do not cover the costs of editorial content, which jeopardizes the continuous operation of the site. We do not introduce a paid subscription, as many US media do, and provide access to all our materials for free, because we understand how important it is for Russian-speaking immigrants to receive reliable information in their native language. $ 5, $ 10, $ 20 - any amount you share with us will help the site survive, which means we can continue to provide useful information to thousands of immigrants. Support quality journalism! We believe in the power of our readers!

Always yours, ForumDaily!
