Help The UpTake continue its live Wisconsin coverage

Dear UpTake Supporter,

In order for us to continue its live coverage of the events in “The Badger State,” Spot.Us is increasing The UpTake’s fundraising goal from $15,000 to $25,000. Why the need for extra money? Our costs to provide live streaming is $2,000 a day. We want to keep livestreaming the events for as long as possible. Every day for almost three weeks we’ve been providing live insight into the Wisconsin protests.
