Are We There Yet?

Not quite. Yes, we're doing better, we're closing in, but – no – we haven't made our goal of $60,000. And it is absolutely essential that we make it, or else we're in trouble. We'll have to make cutbacks – noticeable ones. You won't like it – and neither will we.

One good thing about is that we manage to get a lot of mileage out of very few dollars – but we do need every one of those dollars to survive. That's why it is so important that we make our goal. We don't mean to hector you – but we're budgeted so tightly that if we are missing just some income, the shortfall will show.

So don't delay. Help us make it over the top. We have just a little ways to go – so make a difference and contribute today.

In the first five days of our drive, 907 of you gave a total of $41,912. We are getting back on track to reach $60,000 to keep running for the next quarter. Please help make our goal.
