Default Lets whup some NumbersUSA tail..

Sorry that I had to wait this long to contribute. Been tight with my debt and payments and also secretly monitoring this board and praying for your success. My first contribution of $20 was sent via paypal.

I personally feel that not a lot of people out there know about paypal or are just too scared to transact online.

It would be awesome if a portion of the money could be used to start a mailing campaign via snail mail by including a contribution plea letter along with a form that can be filled and mailed with a cheque to IV. Just like those credit card offers. Obviously to all the registered members.

Also, psychologically, when you navigate to the contribution page, the list of contribution amount options starts with $100. And then all the way to the right is the "other" option. It takes time for the eye to get to the "other" amount option as a result of which an anonymous/interested user navigating to the page sees contribution amounts in multiples of $100 thereby creating doubt/hesitation without realizing that you can choose the "other" option to contribute in smaller numbers. It would be great if you could put in a blank text field first and then the other options with multiples of $100.


Just my 0.02 cents.


Keep pushing and for all you guys watching in the sidelines watch "Gandhi" - the movie, for inspiration. Seriously!

Even if you don't contribute, walk up to Blockbuster or go online on Netflix and rent the movie out.

IV is doing a tremoundus job. I have been watching and waiting silently until I saw the movie "Gandhi".

I know many of you single non-immigrants living alone don't have to shop around for Christmas. I know I don't because my family doesn't live here. So maybe you can gift IV with a small contribution.

Maybe you can skip a carwash this month (for all those living in the south, i.e.) and do it yourself and send in the money to IV. Small drops of water make an ocean. So don't think your contribution, however small it may be, is not going to help.

If you really don't have the money to contribute, atleast buy a $1 greeting card and a $0.39 stamp and send it to IV thanking them for fighting on your behalf. Its that simple.


Good luck and god bless.

Exclamation Receiving error essage while contributing

I am trying to make my second $100 contribution using my American Express card but am getting this message below:

"We were unable to verify this credit card through our card validation process. To proceed with checkout, please verify the information you entered is correct or try a different card."

I have tried 3 times and there's no problem with the info I am keying in. Is there a problem using American Express cards?

am2006 you are a star ! I have used the AMEX card in the past and never had any problem, are you sure about the verification number (3 digit on the back) and the zip code, they usually match those to validate..just my 0.02, I'm sure you already know all of this...

anyway I could help to be the 20th contributor..please try with a different card if possible...

Thumbs up Contribution successfully made with Mastercard

Well, I just successfully contributed my 2nd $100 to IV. There is just no way we are going to give up this time. It is not going to come easy, especially not without the relatively small financial sacrifice. But the return --Immeasurable peace of mind and relief. Lets wish ourselves good luck & keep each other motivated.
