At the beginning of this year the advocates, organizers and lawyers at Consumer Watchdog promised to take on insurance and healthcare companies, fight for online privacy and build a community of activists who could spread the word about our work for consumer protection and social change.
Here’s a quick look at some of Consumer Watchdog’s 2011 successes by the numbers:
· $295 million in savings on auto, homeowners and renters insurance policies;
· Two major health insurers canceled or substantially reduced planned rate hikes;
· One anti-consumer mega-merger blocked — AT&T's deal with T-Mobile;
· 40,000 fans on Consumer Watchdog’s Facebook page connecting with 13 million friends.
But with all the numbers in the world, right now we’re looking for a few specific numbers:
$25 $50 $100
There are only a few hours left before we wrap up 2011. Please make a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford before you close down for the year.
Consumer Watchdog got a lot done in 2011. With your support, we can promise to do even more in 2012.
Thank you for all your support and Happy New Year.
