A special thanks to four young News-Decoder supporters for their work in promoting our mission: Rae Ellen Bichell, Catherine Cheney, Erin Devine and Alin Horj.
Alin and Catherine are co-winners of our crowd-funding contest as one of two supporters who referred the greatest number of individuals to the campaign. Catherine is an adviser to News-Decoder and a journalist working in the United States. Alin has just earned a master’s degree at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
Erin and Rae Ellen helped promote News-Decoder’s crowd-funding appeal, using their editing, social media and design skills to spread word of the campaign, which attracted 361 donors from 42 countries.
All four have received News-Decoder tee shirts, and Alin and Catherine have won framed original drawings by Sandrine Courau, signed by the artist.
These are News-Decoder’s trailblazers.
