Can you donate $20 or $50 so we can make more Ñews y Satire?

We like making POCHO for you every day, but it takes money. Can you help?

POCHO has no big backers, no mega investors, no brand-name “sponsors.”

That’s deliberate.  We get the cash we need from you, our loyal readers, and no one tells us what we can or cannot publish. Can you help?

We need cash. Ten bucks, $20 or even $50 isn’t that much once you do the math. Can you help?


POCHO typically publishes a minimum of four new posts every weekday, or 20 posts each week. If only half of those make you laugh, that’s 10 laughs a week. Fifty-two weeks of 10 laughs is over 500 laughs a year. With a $50 donation, your net cost per laugh is a less than a dime. UNDER TEN CENTS! Such a deal!

Please kick in a few bucks to keep the Ñews y Satire flowing.  We take all plastic and PayPal tambien.
