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!

Oh, WHEW! The pretty letter lady and her amazing formatting skills is back!

My puter is really slogging down........will take a quick break and reboot. Maybe that will help.

P.S. Are the G.S. cookies good this year?

"My tag line is aimed at the Freeploaders who know better but still want a free lunch because of the infestation of the Free Lunch Liberal Social Disease Virus"

No doubt we have a lot of infected posters...maybe they'll take the hint and try your 'cure'

That was great. Why didn't you circulate it in time for Halloween? I'm going to keep a file of these so when that hag runs, we have plenty of fodder for posters.
Thanks so much....stanz

KIMMY AND THE TYRANTS OF THE WORLD DEMAND THAT YOU STOP FREEPING! DO NOT SUPPORT FREE REPUBLIC! DO NOT CLICK ABUSE AS I AM PLAINLY TYPING TONGUE-IN-CHEEK!

In the charming words of North Korea's official Rodong Sinmun newspaper, reported by the South Korean Yonhap, "If the United States evades its responsibility and challenges us, we'll turn the citadel of imperialists into a sea of fire."

YOU WANT TO BE NEXT? YOU KEEP DOING THINGS LIKE SUPPORTING FREE REPUBLIC AND MAYBE NORTH KOREAN WILL TURN YOU INTO A SEA OF FIRE, YOU IMPERIALIST SWINE YOU.


Help isolated leader Kim Jong Il to maintain power in his impoverished communist country. Do it for North Korea: Don't Contribute to Free Republic Today!!

Excellent.

You should run this for the two weeks before Halloween and through Halloween each year with her bat picture. We might get a lot of new monthly donors.

I have an idea. I will donate $25 each for two people in Delaware who will pledge $10 monthlies. Got it? That will be $50, if two people in Delaware become monthly donors of #10 each.

Ok.......so one little girl got 46 boxes...and YOUR DAUGHTER (not you, Mom) got 8 cases? How many boxes are in a case?

When the granddaughters (4 of them) have fundraisers.....we are just automatically put down for $40 dollars worth. We have candy bars in the freezer that, I think, are about 3 years old.

But we get even......when they visit...and we do s'mores out around the campfire in our back yard......we use THOSE SAME candybars.....BWHAHAHAHAHA!

I just checked and, since this FReepathon started, we have increased monthly donations by $714 per month.

That is very good, and we're not through yet.

I hope we make $1,000 before this is over.
