Basic Income Now is a site dedicated to promoting awareness of and increasing activism for Basic Income. Right now we are a small, one-man show but after just a few months we have had thousands of views, nearly 500 Twitter followers and started the #BasicIncomeWorks hashtag. Amongst our followers are Natalie Bennett, the leader of the Green Party England and Wales and Peter Joseph, founder of the Zeitgeist movement.
To grow this site and be more effective at raising awareness and encouraging support of Basic Income, I need help from you. I have many plans for the future including improving the website design, shareable widgets, a Basic Income calculator, an image feed, designing and printing publications such as leaflets and flyers for real-world distribution as well as encouraging the foundation of new Basic Income groups worldwide.
To help me achieve those goals, you can donate a lump sum above, or donate €10 a month below, this money will be used to cover the costs associated with improving the site. You can be part of the growing movement towards Basic Income.
The creator of the site is me, Liam Upton. Apart from this site, I am a mod of three Basic Income-related reddit communities including the main one /r/BasicIncome, a co-editor of the BIEN-run Basic Income News site and an active member of Basic Income Ireland. I also created the Basic Income Waterford local Facebook group.
