X'mas jingle? Media seeking alms?

This holiday season, you have several options of where to donate your money: Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, soup kitchens. But have you considered the Miami Herald?

It's not quite a charity case yet, but the paper is accepting handouts if you have any spare change. Users of the Herald's Web edition can make donations to the paper on each story. A link at the bottom of each story directs users to "Support ongoing news coverage on Miamiherald.com."

Through the link, you can pay any amount you'd like with a credit card. "If you value The Miami Herald's local news reporting and investigations, but prefer the convenience of the Internet, please consider a voluntary payment for the web news that matters to you," the donation page reads.

With cutbacks, layoffs and weak revenues, the Herald is looking for money from its online content. Having already cut 175 jobs earlier this year, the Herald announced it would be cutting 24 more just in time for the holidays.
