HELP KEEP THE LIGHTS ON: First Quarter '03 FReepathon Now Underway .. Thread 3

HELP KEEP THE LIGHTS ON: JOIN THE FREEPATHON AND SUPPORT OUR SITE
First Quarter '03 FReepathon Now Underway

.... ...

The Free Republic first quarter '03 FReepathon is now underway! .... Thread 3

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!

You guys are doing a great job! Donations are down for everything this year, but FR's doing fine. After 6 days of the Freepathon FR's at 35%. Here's what BADJOE reminded us during the last quarter:

For those who think it took a lot of days, 12 days is a very repectful accomplishment. We had many Freepathons that took 18 days to raise less money. We were spoiled by the lightening fast December 2001 effort, and March and June of this year were pretty fast too (9 or 10 days).


Thank you, Freepers!

I'm a little on the slow side.

I actually went to Breaking News to find the story. LOL!

Good one, though, now that I got it.

I'm afraid your humor is too subtle for me.

Bumping for New Monthly Donors

5,000 Freepers who care are needed now!

Bumping for new monthlies! Please join Grampa Dave's team!! Your monthly 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!"



Every donation is greatly appreciated and will help Free Republic to continue to grow:

"While large donations are great, often it is the small ones that are sacrificial and inspiring.

Every penny that is donated is greatly appreciated and helps to pay the bills.

Those who are not in a position right now to donate can still make an important contribution by bumping this thread or pinging others to it."

Bumping for more monthly donors to end the Freepathons.

Only 17 cents a day or $5/month can help to end the Freepathons.

If we had 5,000 Freepers donating 17 cents per day or $5 per month, we could retire the Freepathons.

As you know the above billboard was put up in SW Oregon last year thanks to EBuck and other Freepers for a few months.

Now thanks to Ebuck, a new FIRE billboard will be put up in Arizona for a whole year.

This billboard is a prime example of what happens when conservatives get together on Free Republic.

A question to those who don't donate to Free Republic. Isn't just this bill board worth 17 cents a day. This bill board will cause a lot of pain for the Watermelon Green Jihadists in Arizona.

back atcha...

I got a laff out of this, posted on a Breaking Thread regarding vials of Bubonic Plague missing from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas...

BREAKING NEWS: Authorities refuse to confirm or deny that an elaborate system of underground tunnels has been discovered in a Lubbock park near the site of the theft.

Homeland Security has dispatched a security team to assess the situation.

Shortly after the FBI released an all points bulletin for information on this suspect in the plague theft

a Pakistani barber claimed that it was actually a picture of himself.
