FREEDOM OF THE PRESS FOUNDATION

Our Mission
Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that protects, defends, and empowers public-interest journalism in the 21st century.

The organization works to preserve and strengthen First and Fourth Amendment rights guaranteed to the press through a variety of avenues, including the development of encryption tools, documentation of attacks on the press, training newsrooms on digital security practices, and advocating for the public’s right to know.

Freedom of the Press Foundation is built on the recognition that this kind of transparency journalism — from publishing the Pentagon Papers and exposing Watergate, to uncovering the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping program and CIA secret prisons — doesn’t just happen. It requires dogged work by journalists, and often, the courage of whistleblowers and others who work to ensure that the public actually learns what it has a right to know.

Our Work
We accomplish our mission in several ways:

SecureDrop. We lead the development of SecureDrop, an open source platform for secure communication between sources and media organizations, and we support its adoption by newsrooms around the world. SecureDrop is available in 10 languages and used by more than 70 media organizations world-wide, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Associated Press, The Intercept, USA Today, CBC, and The Guardian.

Digital Security Trainings. We conduct in-person digital security trainings with journalists and filmmakers to help teach them about digital security tools and offer them the best available technologies to protect themselves and their sources.

U.S. Press Freedom Tracker. In partnership with the Committee to Protect Journalists, we run the US Press Freedom Tracker, a website for monitoring press freedom violations in the United States. This nonpartisan news website is the first to provide reliable, easy-to-access information on the number of press freedom violations in the United States—from journalists facing charges to those stopped at the US border or physically attacked while on the job.

Encryption Tools & Special Projects. We also build a variety of experimental technology projects that aim to protect journalists or promote transparency. In 2017, we helped release an Android app called Haven, which can use the sensors on anyone’s smartphone to act as a security system for your surroundings. The project is open source and does not send any information to the cloud. We also built a Twitter bot called FOIA Feed which automatically collects stories that rely on the Freedom of Information Act from over a dozen different news outlets. Additionally, we built a tool that can archive at-risk news outlets which are in danger of being blocked or deleted from the web and it was credited by reporters as being a factor in stopping Peter Thiel from buying and permanently deleting Gawker.

News and Advocacy. We engage in public and legal advocacy around critical press freedom issues, including excessive government secrecy, the protection of whistleblowers, the surveillance of journalists, the Freedom of Information Act, and reporter’s privilege.

Crowdfunding. Non-profit media, independent transparency organizations, and open-source security tools are increasingly a critical component of the journalism landscape. We aim to broaden the financial base of these types of projects by crowd-sourcing funding and making it easy for people to support the best journalism from an array of organizations all in one place.

Our Vision
Freedom of the Press Foundation aims to protect and promote the basic human right of freedom of the press, both in the United States, and abroad, in a world where surveillance, censorship, and manipulation are becoming more sophisticated and more pervasive. Public interest journalism — the kind of journalism that holds power accountable and defends human rights — is under threat everywhere.

Our goal is to ensure that all news organizations worldwide recognize that digital security is a critical press freedom issue in the 21st century. To protect journalists, their sources and their audiences, it is imperative that newsrooms use best-available security tools and practices, including encryption of sensitive communications and materials, anonymization of sources, and distribution of news through secure and censorship-resistant channels.

TAILS OS

The amnestic incognito live system for privacy and anonymity.

Tails is free because nobody should have to pay to be safe while using computers.
Tails is used more than 25 000 times every day:

* Journalists and whistleblowers use Tails to denounce the wrongdoings of governments and corporations.
* Activists use Tails to avoid surveillance and organize their struggles for liberatory social change.
* Human-rights defenders use Tails to avoid censorship and report human-rights violations.
* Domestic violence survivors use Tails to escape surveillance in their homes.
* Privacy-concerned citizens use Tails to avoid online tracking.

But, not everyone using Tails can donate. When you donate, you are offering to many others who need it, the very precious tool that is Tails.

Donations from individuals like you are our most valuable source of funding as they make Tails more independent from government and corporate funding. We are a very small non-profit and our yearly budget is ridiculously small compared to the value of Tails.

Donate today to protect and sustain Tails!

LINUXMINT OS

The purpose of Linux Mint is to produce a modern, elegant and comfortable operating system which is both powerful and easy to use.

Linux Mint is one of the most popular desktop Linux distributions and used by millions of people.

Some of the reasons for the success of Linux Mint are:

* It works out of the box, with full multimedia support and is extremely easy to use.
* It’s both free of cost and open source.
* It’s community-driven. Users are encouraged to send feedback to the project so that their ideas can be used to improve Linux Mint.
* Based on Debian and Ubuntu, it provides about 30,000 packages and one of the best software managers.
* It’s safe and reliable. Thanks to a conservative approach to software updates, a unique Update Manager and the robustness of its Linux architecture, Linux Mint requires very little maintenance (no regressions, no antivirus, no anti-spyware…etc).

ANIMAL HOPE BULGARIA BURGAS

Animal Hope Bulgaria – Burgas is an organization that operates entirely through volunteers, without receiving state or municipal funding, which means that the only way to help our animals is with your donations and support.

Every day we are overwhelmed by dozens of reports of animals in distress, signals that all we can do is share to our page due to the shortage of accommodation and financial resources for their treatment and nutrition.

Since April 2016, we have been in a particularly dire financial situation. We bought land to build a crisis center but the project was frozen due to lack of funds. At the moment, we are barely able to buy the weekly animal feeds and cover the bills in veterinary clinics. Unfortunately, there is a real danger of having to put the animals back on the streets, or worse.

In order to respond to signals, to save, to heal, to nourish, to care for and to provide shelter to all those homeless animals WE need YOU! We need your help and support! Because YOU are the engine of our organization. We give them our days and nights, our love, attention and personal funds… but considering their number, our means are extremely inadequate.

The site is maintained by two people, one of whom takes care of the animals daily, and we also go to work. We do not have the physical ability to constantly share to pages and groups. We are deeply disappointed that our page, as well as our personal profiles, are overwhelmed by constant signals in which we are required to take in another animal, and at the same time, our appeals for help are ignored. We want to help each and every animal but we can’t.

We cannot describe with words the feeling of dozens of big sad eyes looking hopefully at you, or the lump stuck in your throat because you cannot afford to take them in… and yet there they are – waiting and hoping. And since no one should ever go to sleep hungry, no one should suffer and be in pain, our loans and obligations grew bigger and bigger and it reached the point of where we can no longer afford to go further.

We live day by day with the food donated to us. In one week, our dogs consume 70 kg of dog food and our cats about 25 kg of cat food. We have liabilities of over €1,500 to veterinary clinics. We also pay €250 for rent every month.

We do everything for them, and you can do something for them too!

To anyone who decides to help – thank you! We also thank you on behalf of all those animals that, with the help of each big heart that decides to donate, will be fed and sheltered tonight. All they have is us – the people who love them and care for them!
