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!

And, actually, if we add in the approximate $13,000 in monthlies that will be coming in later in the quarter, we are actually at 60% of our goal of $65,000.

Great news, Jim.

At what point will we add in the monthlies? Still at 65%?

We always get a second wind after the monthly jump and the FReepathon finishes pretty fast after that.

Do people realize that if everyone donating now became a monthly donor that we wouldn't have to have these fundraisers? Just let FR take it out monthly -- you don't miss it -- no more quarterly fundraisers. Then we could have one big fundraiser once a year for contigency funding!

So well said, PhiKapMom.

This is my eleventh Freepathon (but, who's counting) since the first one in June 2000. I gave up 2 1/2 years of lurking to sign on just to help out.

Most people feel that their small donations monthly won't make a difference, BUT THEY DO!

Having an annual contingency FReepathon, if necessary, would be a hoot! Everyone would have a great time.

We all need to have our tag lines to ask for more monthly donors!

Some can be funny! Some can be straight forward! Then some can be well, ?

He's giving a GREAT speech.

He just said that before the caps law in PA went into effect, malpractice claims went up dramatically. He said that tells him that these claims are like the lottery. GREAT point!

Dick Meek and I feed each other re our mutual habit of collecting funny pictures of the Da$$hole.

He is like most left wing lunatics, he can't handle any humor on his expense. He is the perfect target for Good Old Freeper Humor!

Re my tagline. Freeploaders should look at a $5/month donation to Free Republic as a cheap copay each month to treat the left wing social disease of Freep Loading.

Doctors could cure the malpractice problem in a few weeks.

All they would have to do is refuse to treat or even schedual an appointment with any trial lawyer or their family members until the trial lawyers themselves stop rampant malpractice suits.

That would put a stop the rampant malpractice suits without any government intervention.
