The Paradise Papers: The Long Twilight Struggle Against Offshore Secrecy

Dear Steve,

Here we are, the final e-mail from ICIJ for the year - and what a year it has been!

Today we have our latest piece of Paradise Papers coverage for you - reflecting the groundswell of action ICIJ's projects on offshore secrecy have created. We're hoping it continues in the new year!

We also calculated how much money tax authorities across the world have recouped since we published the Panama Papers in April last year - more than $500 million (and counting!)

And in true holiday spirit, we have insight into what our team members (though maybe not me!) are doing this holiday season.

Finally, I'd like to thank you all for your support. Our weekly e-mails have received amazing reactions from most of you - e-mails of gratitude and tips about what we should cover next!

It's also the last chance for you to support ICIJ financially before the end of the year. We want to raise $100,000, and News Match is still matching gifts until Dec. 31, so now's the perfect time to donate. If you want to make a donation there are so many ways. You can use Facebook, PayPal, online payments, you can mail us a check and you even can get yourself a Snax Haven sticker!

And if your employer matches donations, don't forget to ask for that match.

Until next time! (And next year!)
