This isn’t bad considering the fundraiser began after the session began and we just recently passed the halfway-point of the session.
The goal is $2,000 and in the last week, site supporters donated $400 — from that, $225 was through Paypal (” target=”_blank”>click here or on the button below for that option) and $175 was through checks that were either sent in the mail or handed to me in person.
The Paypal button is below:
If you want to send a personal check, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will let you know where to send the check. Or you can catch me most days at the Roundhouse, if you prefer face-to-face contact.
The upside of a check is that it does not have the three-percent fee that Paypal charges.
Each person who donates, and provides me with an email address, is added to the early Morning Word email list for the remainder of the legislative session. This means they will get the Morning Word email at 4:30 am each morning instead of the 8:00 am time that the regular list gets the email sent.
If we reach the $2,000 goal, I might send a little (very small) bonus gift to all the donors.
So what are the people who donate, and hopefully you, paying for?
Since my post last Friday updating the site fundraiser, there have been 24 posts, including five editions of the Morning Word. This comes while getting over illness (the webcasting option is very helpful at that point). I have wrote posts about controversial gun background check legislation, open government bills and even liquor laws.
This is all in an effort to keep everyone better informed of what is going on in their legislative session.
So if you want to make sure this pace continues through the rest of the session, please donate.
