The Free Republic first quarter '03 FReepathon is now underway!

Our goal for this fundraiser is the same as last quarter: $65,000. We have about $4,000 per month coming in from monthly donors so we will need to raise approx $53,000 to hit the target.

The funds raised through these fundraisers are used to pay our operating costs. Free Republic operates on an approximate $260,000 annual budget (breakdown here) and all funds are provided by donations from FReepers and Lurkers.

Thank you all very much for your continued support.

P.S. We are planning to make FreeRepublic.com email addresses available as a thank you to all who donate at least once per year. This new feature should be ready to go within a few days. We will post a notice and a link for donors to setup their FR email address as soon as it's ready.

Donate to FR and help us keep the lights on for the best political forum on the NET!

Thanks FRiend!!!

I've been swiping all the ones that have been posted so far this evening - so that I will be prepared tomorrow!!!

Right now I have to relieve hubby - who has been doing battle with trying to get the yung'un to understand she HAS to go to bed and stay there.

SHEESH - I do not understand how this child does it - anymore if I get her to sleep by midnight it is a miracle.

No promises I will be back this evening - so if not - Good night everyone - see you tomorrow!

For a year or two Badjoe and I helped fund the site through the sales of merchadise. Once the FReepathons began, they were organized by Badjoe and his fundreasing team, I wasn't involved.

Right now, I'm debating whether to convert to a monthly donation. I'm starting to lean that way.

I was pretty surprised to read that we only get $4k a month from monthlies.

Maybe it's sloth, but one of the Prime Directives around here is "There is NO FREE LUNCH!"

Meaning that JimRob writes the checks that pays the bills that keep the lights on. I would think that fans of this place would understand that, w/o a lot of nagging.

Come on, folks. Do a $20 monthly, as I do, and get this fundraising a thing of the past.

I was wondering where this "Tag Line" was located. I spent 15 minutes looking in my profile and preferences etc. and it was right under my nose!

Here's something I found of interest though....

Q: Why are the home pages ugly in this 'improved' version?

A: Because I'm working on the system. It will look better when I am finished.

I think we're all used to this improved ugly version now - (it ain't so ugly!)

$40 Ashland, Missouri
