First Quarter '03 FReepathon Now Underway
Donate to Free Republic ^ | January 9, 2003 | Jim Robinson

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!

Good!

Will we get to see a picture of the late, great Tosh, too?

I have no idea how these computer picture gadgets work, but you always have a terrific picture for every occasion.

I'm impressed!

Mud's making an inside joke. He's not actually offended if we mention pets. LOL -- I've long suspected that most of Mud's posts are inside jokes and I'm a little scared that I'm beginning to "get" more of them.

So Mudboy, here's my theory of life: IT'S FRIDAY!! WOOO HOOOOOO!!!

"All FReep-A-Thon Threads are herewith declared "100% Pet-Picture FRee!!!!""

My mistake...I misread the FReeper Manual on "Pet-Picture FRee Threads" and apparently we're only allowed to make one animal outlawed per thread, so this shall hereforewith be declared a "100% Dog-Picture FRee!! thread" by Proclamation of the Powers-that-Be!!

I apologize fer any confusion...MUD

BTW...MODZ, please correct me if I'm WRONG!! LOL!!)8^D!!

Fixed...


Ok if I bump for monthlies, too?! Yes? Ok then:

5,000 Freepers who care are needed now!

Bumping for new $5 monthlies! Please join Grampa Dave's team!! Your $5 per month donation will be greatly appreciated!

An excerpt from Grampa Dave's Free Republic Lifeform post:

"This is a wonderful description of what Free Republic really is. It is a living and evolving Life Form to battle the left wingers and those who would destroy this country!...

Free Republic needs a constant infusion of cash to keep the Free Republic Life Form alive, viable and to grow. If we believe in Free Republic, we must donate each month or quarterly to keep this incredible life form alive... Good stewardship is what this world needs, not good intentions. Good conservative stewards will insure that the Free Republic Life Form continues to grow, be viable and thrives!"


The Free Republic Life Form continues to grow -- A $5 per month "infusion" will make a difference!!

Monthly donors make it easier to project the income flow.

If we ever get enough monthly donors, we could really cut back on these Freepathons.

In some kind of SNAFU a while back, I remember a thread a while back that monthly donors needed to re-enter their information. I, of course, forgot to do so.

However, that could be a blessing in disguise. I'm thinking that I can leverage the equivalent of my normal monthly by watching for one of the matching challenges that frequently pop up. If someone would be kind enough to ping me when one occurs, I'll be happy to send my dues along.

Thanks.

p.s. - if there is one happening now, forgive me. I haven't read the replies.

Thanks Sir! As usual you are a gentleman and a scholar with this reply:

All right. This afternoon I will dig out the credit card and switch to becoming a monthly donor. But I reserve the right to make additional donations occasionally when I'm feeling especially generous!

I think that you will see that a very large % of monthly donors feel the same way that you do. They not only reserve the right to make additional donations, they usually do.

We have basic philosophy at our Church. God in his kindness loaned us Time, Talent and Treasure. It is only right to give all three back to the good things on this earth. I feel that Free Republic is one of the good things, and I want to insure that it stays here. So I donate automatically each month and in between when possible.

Thanks for becoming a monthly donor. Just remember as I have suggested in the past. Make sure you wear your batting helmet in batting practice, and when you actually bat! :)
