arao is on a distinguished road
Default My first contribution - 50$

Paypal receipt number: 4564-2649-6502-4419
This is such a no-brainer.

Unfortunately, I am guessing most folks are thinking along the lines of.......
"What if I donate 100$ and nothing comes out of these efforts? The 100$ would be a waste."
Come on guys. That is not the spirit. Six months from now, we do not want to be thinking "IV efforts failed. Maybe they did not have enough money. What if I had contributed 100$? Maybe I would be out of this mess and not pay my lawyer/USCIS thousands of dollars for fees every year".

Hope everyone steps up to the plate (both financially as well as through volunteering) and makes 2007 a great year.

Regards,
arao

I am more interested in knowing what the percentage of non-paying population in IV members is. Then we can start a phonathon and talk to them, and find out what is stopping them from contributing even $20.

Thats a problem. Right now its hard to find out who haven't contributed and who have. ( According to a core member).

I put some reasonable amount of time for IV here in Nevada. It would be easier for me, if I get a list of people who did not contribute. Its kinda hard to ask again and again the same people.... Hope something could be done regarding this.

we need people to give us their phone number and correct email addresses. We have been requesting this since a long time and still a lot of us do not have complete information in their profile. Maybe when members ask for updates, I should look for update in their account information to see if they really paid attention to our appeals . Anyways this IV effort is voluntary and the forum is open. And whoever feels for this cause deeply and sincerely feel that we are all working to fulfill the goals for this community will definately contribute and help in more ways than one.

The only way out to this problem is to email passwords for all new accounts to the email ID's. So if somebody creates an account, he can select the user name but the password should be emailed by the system to the email ID.

Default Maybe updates should be only via email?

Maybe anytime someone asks for an update, the update should be either via email or phone. That way, at least people give their right email :-).

Personally I am beginning to believe people will start donating more if they meet someone in person. For our next state chapter meeting, I am planning to propose everyone planning to attend tries to bring at least one "fence sitter" along.
Not sure if this was tried before.

Default pitch in please..

Hope everyone had a good long weekend !

..let's start the push to finish line, it looks close but as pappu mentioned $29,500 is still a good sprint, please contribute if you haven't. It was mentioned during the weekend MA teleconf that "if something doesn't happen in 07 then its a long wait till 09 or way beyond" so please give that financial power to core team. Unfortunately money talks in DC and we as a team have to pitch in.. 6 days and 29500, I think still reachable.....let's go team...

thanks to anurakt for that huge contribution to reach the first mileston...

$100 comes from me and five new members are joining the group from my office. We are banking on IV heavily and, I percieve IV carrying out its job quite well. Hope we achieve this short term goal which will embolden us and equip us with more fire power to shoot for bigger targets.

Cheers !!
