FReepathon Monthly Challenge - FReeper Convention Ticket Drawing
Click here to start your monthly ^ | July 6, 2009 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 07/06/2009 11:33:39 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

More Monthlies Needed!!

If we had enough monthlies to cover our costs we wouldn't even need to hold FReepathons or, in the very least, they'd run a lot faster. If you are a regular donor to Free Republic, please consider starting a monthly. Your donations will be processed automatically by our program or through PayPal.

If you are not a regular donor to Free Republic but find our website fun, useful and informative, please consider becoming a regular donor. Start a monthly if you can.

And if you start your monthly this month (or increase your current monthly) please let me know by FReepmail and we'll include your name in a drawing to be held at the end of this month for TWO tickets to our National Convention in Washington, D.C. on Sept 11 through 13.

We already have SIX new monthlies in the drawing and would like to add your name. If your name is drawn, you can use the tickets yourself or give them away to others.

Woo hoo!! Hope to see you in DC!!

"We just gained TWO more monthlies and added TWO more names to our drawing!!"

GREAT NEWS! The more monthlies the better!

As a monthly member I invite all Freepers to join me in the $1 a day club!

Free Republic is worth a lot more to me than $1 a day, but I know I am helping with my pledge as a dollar a day member!

We just ask that all Freepers donate what they can to help keep FreeRepublic.com up and running! Thanks for your help Freepers! :)

What a deal!

Just become a monthly donor and get your name in the drawing for two Freeper Convention tickets!

Come on, Freepers! Don't miss a chance in the drawing and know you are helping Free Republic at the same time! :)

My bump for the evening.

“ONLY DEAD FISH GO WITH THE FLOW”
That was first said by GK Chesterton, which means that she is much better read that anyone gives her credit for.

It has special meaning to me:

Years ago we were vacationing along the Columbia River. We stopped to picnic along a small stream. In it was a female salmon swimming her way upstream to spawn. She struggled for hours to pull her cut injured torn body over rough rocks and through shallow water that barely covered her weakened body. Finally she reached the small pool below a beautiful waterfall where she laid her eggs, died and floated down stream...

Sarah fishes for Salmon. She knows the process, the determination, perseverance they exhibit to preserve their breed.

IMO Sarah exhibits the same characteristic. ANd we’ll see in the future that she wants to preserve us, the USA.

God bless Sarah....She listens to the small still voice...and follows its calling.

Great John Huang2! And I will DITTO the "God Bless and Long Live FreeRepublic.com!

I have noticed the Florida FR donation total sitting still and I would love to see that number go UP!

Come on, FLORIDA FREEPERS! Let's see some action on our total! Maybe I can help someone take the monthly leap!

THE NEXT FLORIDA FREEPER who becomes a monthly donor/$1 a day club member gets a personalized Free Republic T-Shirt from me!

JimRob will let me know the Freeper name of the next FLORIDA FREEPER who becomes a MONTHLY member and I will Freepmail that person with directions on how to receive the personalized FreeRepublic.com T-Shirt!

NOW, THAT'S A DEAL!

Good for you, ButThreeLeftsDo! I hope to see some Florida Freepers do the same!

Come on, FLORIDA FREEPERS! Let's see some action on our state total! Maybe I can help someone take the monthly $1 a day leap!

THE NEXT FLORIDA FREEPER who becomes a monthly donor/$1 a day club member gets a personalized Free Republic T-Shirt from me! Only $30 a month, painless!

JimRob will let me know the Freeper name of the next FLORIDA FREEPER who becomes a MONTHLY $1 a day club member and I will Freepmail that person with directions on how to receive the personalized FreeRepublic.com T-Shirt!

NOW, THAT'S A DEAL and you would help Free Republic too!

Glad you ordered yourself a Free Republic T-shirt!

I am still waiting for a FLORIDA FREEPER to join me as a $1 a day club member so I can see that he/she gets their free personalized Free Republic T-shirt!

So far, we haven't had a FL Freeper take the leap! And a beautiful FR T-shirt is waiting for the next FL Freeper who joins the club! :)

Hey, all you new monthly folks, thanks for your support of the forum. I and a lot of other Freepers do appreciate it.

Here's a bump for the 23% that has come in so far this Freepathon...
