SEND US IDEAS: Our small team relies on the community’s eyes and ears to know what’s happening in your communities. We want to hear from you! Upload here or Email info@indiacurrents.com

GET OUR EMAILS We have a weekly round-up of our best stories. Our emails are always free and you can unsubscribe anytime. Sign up here.

SHARE PHOTOS & VIDEOS We love seeing what you’re seeing around town. Upload photographs or videos here. If you’re on Flickr, add images to our India Currents Flickr group. If you’re on Instagram, tag #India Currents when you want us to see your photos. We might feature them and will always credit you.

SHARE OUR WORK We need your help to grow. Share our stories on social media and with your neighborhood groups and other networks if you find them valuable. Buttons at the bottom of each story help share in the way you prefer. You can also “like” our stories on Facebook and retweet them on Twitter. Small efforts like this help amplify our work.

FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA If you don’t already, follow India Currents on Facebook and Twitter. Otherwise, you may miss items we only post on social media.

REVIEW US ON FACEBOOK Tell us how we’re doing by writing a quick review on Facebook. We love to hear from you.

WRITE FOR US: PITCH STORIES OR WRITE AN OP-ED We’re always looking for freelancers who have specific ideas, and for missives from community members who are passionate about items of local interest. Write to editor@IndiaCurrents.com for details.

ADVERTISE We are always happy to talk to advertisers who want to build their brand through India Currents’ multiple channel platforms (web, social media, newsletters, etc.).

DONATE OR BECOME A MEMBER We never charge to read our stories, but content is not free to produce. Make a one-time contribution or give monthly. We can’t do it without you.

…You Are Our Business Model!

More people are reading India Currents than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Our independent, community journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $5, you can support us – and it takes just a moment to give via PayPal or credit card.
