First Quarter '03 FReepathon Now Underway

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!

Why pay some liberal rag paper when I can get better news right here

I'll Second That!
I've been a "Monthly" since the first days I have been here.
FR IS my Best News Resource.
(I don't have a lot of time some days. I can Always check FR for good conservative sources of news)

John has some plans to get rid of the uglies. One new feature we're planning is allowing each donor to have a directory on an FR server where they can upload photos, images and sound files, etc, for use on their FR profile page and for posting to the forum. As a bonus, once they're on one of our own servers there is less of a security risk and we can allow embedding sound files on the profile pages again.

That's great! Thanks, Jim and John, for not forgetting how much some of us miss our embedded music. I knew this was in the works but, I must admit, I had about given up. LOL.

Thank you, I'll have to post that card in my profile, ...now I just have to figure out how to get it signed, along with figuring out how you all are putting little quotes in the tag line next to your screen names, I take it that is a "new" little secret since everyone seems to be doing it lately?

Right under the big box that you make your post in
There are words that read "Tag line (optional, printed after your name on post):"
Under that is a small box and that is were you type your tag line

We may disagree on some things but on the premise of FreeRepublic we agree....Checks in the mail.

I apologize for the skimpy amount, but being as we are living on tobacco road - unemployed and all...maybe I can do more later...

I'd much rather be working, paying taxes I loathe than not working at all.

I haven't slowed down for two solid yrs. here in California and my phone is still ringing for more work....

You know what they say: Location, location, location.

Thanks for the bump and here is one for FreeRepublic the #1 Conservative News Forum in the world!

FreeRepublics Greatest Hits

http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a3ac000935cf9.htm

There are many years of great FR moments that the older FREEPERS can talk about. I hope they help out here so new people can see just why this is the #1 Conservative News Forum in the United States at least thats what Rush says. Rush who is one of the good guys (a white hat person in my books) and many freepers would agree!
