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!

It's the least this Freeper can do for JimRob et. al.

That will be $25 from Rhode Island. Yes, there *are* Freepers here in the land of Linc (God rest his father's soul)!!!!

Good morning, Mo.

How's your husband feeling today?

Last night's thread about banned FReepers ought to bring in a lot of new donations. Those negative threads usually get the good FReepers' blood boiling.

Can't wait to see Jim's list later today!

Thanks for posting this great news about the new monthlies:

This is from the official scoreboard:

January 10th AM we had 221 monthlies for $4,196 per month.

January 17th AM we have 265 monthlies for $5,010 per month.

That's 44 more monthlies and $829 more per month.

Great work, everyone!

That is about a 20% increase in Freepers now making monthlies.

The $ increase is about a 20% increase each month.

Thanks to all the new monthly freepers!

As the founding member od the Loose Change Club, I am finally checking in and cashing in.

Each week-end, I empty my change purse, keep a couple of dollars in change and pour the rest into an old sock. (Actually a zip-lock bag. LOL!) The nickles and dimes add up between Freepathons, and the amount varies from week to week --month to month -----BUT it is a painless way to donate.

The yield since the last Freepathon came to $48.16. I'll round that up to $50 and send it to add to the till.

Anyone want to join me in this special club?

Bumping for new monthly donors

5,000 Freepers who care are needed now!

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!"


The Free Republic Life Form continues to grow -- All monthly "infusions" will make a difference!!


Thank You for your support!

I've seen the fund raising posts which have Tom Daschle on election night, sitting in that room looking all dejected, but now when I NEED it I can't find it. Can a FReeper here help me out and link me to a thread or the URL itself of the picture in question? I REALLY need that picture of Tom Daschle on election night. Thanks for the help!
