In 2022, the Daily Yonder introduced a new feature, “Illustrating the News” by rural Washington-based Graphic Journalist Nhatt Nichols. It’s been a treat working with Nhatt to break down complex issues and bring them to new audiences using the medium of comic strip storytelling. For her latest illustrated offering, Nhatt explains why she’s thankful for the Daily Yonder and why we’re thankful to our readers for helping make these new projects possible.

Check out Nhatt’s story below, and if you enjoy this work, we hope you’ll make a donation to support our increasingly eclectic crew of rural writers, illustrators, and storytellers.

Note, contributions from individuals are eligible to be matched up to $1,000 per donor from November 1 to December 31, 2022, to a combined total of at least $15,000, through the NewsMatch national-matching program. The Daily Yonder has been selected to receive an additional $15,000 in matching funds from NewsMatch for its dedication to providing coverage of rural Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin and highlighting issues that impact residents’ lives and support civic engagement. These matching funds run concurrently, which means every dollar we raise, up to $15,000, is matched twice. Monthly recurring donations are matched at the 12-month value of the donation, up to $1,000. For more details about eligibility see NewsMatch guidelines. The Daily Yonder is a project of the Center for Rural Strategies, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Gifts may be tax deductible; consult a tax adviser for more information.
