Default Emails can be stressful

Wonder if checking USCIS status for LUD can be equally stressful.

I spend lot of time to check status, emails, news.
If I spend the same time in my career, I could have got my GC in EB1 or atleast I could have returned my home with lot better savings & good career back at the home country

On the contrary I think IV forum can be stress relievers. One can share their pain, anxiety, news and questions with other people in the same boat.

Default true but.....

Pappu,
I agree, and so just to vent, IV forum participation must be a give and take, it is shameful and unethical to ask questions and run away once its been answered or their problems are resolved, we have thousands of members and only a handful of them have contributed towards 2009 contributions, the total has not even touched $1500?? there is a limit to being a free rider, at times like these when legal immigration has hit bottom in the priorities list, cant we atleast pool some money and support those who are trying to work for us?? is it too much to ask? its just not enough to say "god will help us", god helps only those who help themselves.

I agree. We are not able to exploit our full potential and come up short in our efforts due to lack of enough support. Imagine if we had hundred thousand members.
or even if we can get the current 30k members to contribute it will be a huge boost. I feel if we can get everyone from other websites to IV that may help us get more participation and contributions.

Individual $20 or $50 should get mass participation. We collected 1K yesterday after a lot of effort. That 1K will be peanuts when we take it and talk to a lobbyist. It will not even get us past initial briefing session if you really want to do full fledged lobbying. If your average lawyer charges you $250 to talk to you only for 15 minutes, imagine how much a lobbyist can charge you to talk let alone go out and allow you to purchase the political capital he has. You should look at how much our rivals spend against us. They even have full time employees and lobbyists on payroll and an office . On the other hand we are simply trying to manage this effort while doing our day jobs and reducing our family time in the evening, nights and weekends. Some of us take time off from work and travel to DC. That time could have been used for trips to Home country or for vacations. Core members, chapter leaders and many active members since the beginning of this effort have made sacrifices. I just hope members are able to see the complete picture of this effort before forming an opinion and taking a decision.

When they see it as their own effort they will participate more actively and make IV their website to go to and participate.

Exactly! Long story short for those who need one liners -

Show IV the money and participate in all action items (in a way you can) otherwise there will be (expected) surprise(s), blog all day & night and prepare yourself for 'return to home'

Default $20 monthly contribution and an Idea!

Pappu,

I strongly suggest that IV introduce $20 monthly recurring contribution, I will defenitely sign up and most people will do it, I think.

Also, How about have a link in the homepage for Imigration attorneys. We can list their contact if they agree for $100 monthly recurring contribution. We have about 30 k members, so it is a good deal for them.

We can allow member testimonials for the attorneys which will be very helpful...
