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!

I just noticed the Freerepublic.com email address! How cool is that? This will strike fear in the hearts at CNN.

If you're referring to the address in post #19, that is for credit card donors (cc@freerepublic.com) about their accounts.

We are getting freerepublic e-mail, but I don't think it's quite ready yet.

Just didn't want to start a stampede!

"North Korea can bite me .. I am so sick of their feeling always getting hurt"

Right on and me too..."if the US doesn't improve ties" translates to "if the US doesn't double the amount of money and food Kim steals for himself and his military and his nuke program", he'll pitch another hissy fit

This is soooo Great.---

TIME GETS BETTER WITH AGE

I learned that I like my teacher because she cries when we sing "Silent Night".

Age 5
I learned that our dog doesn't want to eat my broccoli either.

Age 7
I learned that when I wave to people in the country, they stop what they are doing and wave back.

Age 9
I learned that just when I get my room the way I like it, Mom makes me clean it up again.

Age 12
I learned that if you want to cheer yourself up, you should try cheering someone else up.

Age 14
I learned that although it's hard to admit it, I'm secretly glad my parents are strict with me.

Age 15
I learned that silent company is often more healing than words of advice.

Age 24
I learned that brushing my child's hair is one of life's great pleasures.

Age 26
I learned that wherever I go, the world's worst drivers have followed me there.

Age 29
I learned that if someone says something unkind about me, I must live so that no one will believe it.

Age 30
I learned that there are people who love you dearly but just don't know how to show it.

Age 42
I learned that you can make some one's day by simply sending them a little note.

Age 44
I learned that the greater a person's sense of guilt, the greater his or her need to cast blame on others.

Age 46
I learned that children and grandparents are natural allies.

Age 47
I learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

Age 48
I learned that singing "Amazing Grace" can lift my spirits for hours.

Age 49
I learned that motel mattresses are better on the side away from the phone.

Age 50
I learned that you can tell a lot about a man by the way he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

Age 51
I learned that keeping a vegetable garden is worth a medicine cabinet full of pills.

Age 52
I learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you miss them terribly after they die.

Age 53
I learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life.

Age 58
I learned that if you want to do something positive for your children, work to improve your marriage.

Age 61
I learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

Age 62
I learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catchers mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

Age 64
I learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But if you focus on your family, the needs of others, your work, meeting new people, and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.

Age 65
I learned that whenever I decide something with kindness, I usually make the right decision.

Age 66
I learned that everyone can use a prayer.

Age 72
I learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

Age 82
I learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love that human touch-holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

Age 90
I learned that I still have a lot to learn.

Age 92
I learned that you should pass this on to someone you care about. Sometimes they just need a little something to make them smile.

COOL!!!!!

I'll be back and forth for about an hour or so.

Little one got an "Easy Bake Oven" for christmas and I have been able to put this off for as long as I could.

I told her we would make when the dishwasher was done - well it wasn't off 10 seconds before she came running down the stairs screaming "the dishwasher is done"!!!!

I'll be back as soon as I can!!!!!!!!!1

Here is our first matching challenge for this FReepathon.

Don't know if you have a pet or can post a picture (I know I can't), but just wanted to let you know.

We'll probably have more challenges before this FReepathon is over.
