Posted on 07/13/2019 6:29:00 PM PDT by Louis Foxwell
Dear Free Republic friends,
Free Republic seems to be in a constant fund raising mode. We can change this.
During the past several years some of us began pledging our support either monthly or quarterly. To date the monthly pledges have raised dependable income to close to the 50% level. Currently we need only $2000. in pledges to achieve that goal. Our average pledge is $20. monthly. We need 100 FReepers to begin pledging monthly to achieve this milestone. Some pledges are substantially higher. That is a personal decision you must make based on your financial condition and personal commitment.
For me, personally, I do not support very many causes financially. This allows me to make a larger pledge to FR. I donate $100. monthly from my retirement income. This is a sacrificial pledge for me but one I believe represents the most I can do for something to which I am deeply committed.
Most of those who follow my posts have been in the FR community for many years. You are the primary source of support for this site. If you have not yet stepped up your support to a monthly pledge I encourage you to do so during this current FReepathon.
We all live on a razor's edge. This site could disappear forever in an instant. The one sure way we have to keep it alive is with our financial support.
For those who are more recent members of this unique community there is no better time to begin to show your commitment to keep FR alive.
Make your pledge prayerfully and thoughtfully as an expression of your belief in the importance in your life of this remarkable site.
The Knish Ping list includes more than 400 faithful FReepers. I am sending this request for support to that entire list. Please, those of you who maintain Ping Lists, consider sending this letter or one of your own to the members on your list.
Together we can make this happen.
As a poor guy it has been a good ride.
Did pay up in the past...
Have you folks thought of other forms of support that could help the mission keep going?
I talked to Jim Rob about donating my rights in a song, and that didn’t get interest — granted it’s a religious song, but it’s about making America great again too. I’ve found that God is scarier than I anticipated, to some people. Hello?!? I do not believe in any form of Islam or Jihad, I am not on that side of the fence, I will not murder you, but it’s been a long long long long lonely time since we’ve really seen the top come off with Christianity. However some people might have to confess that putting the secular first really isn’t working all that peachy keen at the end of the day.
How about a case of beer a month? (Blaze Starr)
Try fishing, Christian. That fish might just have a gold doubloon in its mouth.
I sure won’t rebuff any of your prayers for that fish with the doubloon to show up to me.
Monthlies are a very good way to support FR.
Just do it.
I agree & it’s easy!
Good point. Think I’ll add to that recurring pledge; thing is sometimes I have more sometimes less to give but I do give one way or other. FR is way better than any social site for friends. I do not do FB.
Dude, you’re way out of line here. You’re spoiling the thread. I’m surprised because I’ve never seen you so over the top before.
I’ve been a monthly for years and want to encourage others to pray about it, consider it.....if enough of us do it, the fund-raising stuff can be done with.........FR is valuable enough to each of us to do this......let’s just do it!
And I agree too with any prayer that FR should prosper. It’s all I have. I have no money to put where my mouth is. But what prospering looks like... might not be what some people originally envisioned.
God do bless FR. God do bless FR.
