Default Membership & Fund $$ don't match

Hello All,

Some food for thought.

As I understand we (i.e IV) has 21000 members and 14000 active members. If even each active member contrubute $ 20 per month, that would be $ 420,000 per month or about $ 5 Mn per year.

Imagine the miracles that we can do with that kind of fund!! And I am damn sure that we can afford $ 20 per month. Cost of few gallons of gas per month.

Non contributing, active members! Please wake up atleast now and do some soul searching!!!

You will be in for a rude awakening if you try to look at how much percentage of members actually contributes. Sometime back it was around 2 to 3%.

If each person contribute 25% of what they saved from no FEEs raise solution, I am sure we will not have to wait in another backlog DAM and shout for the gates to be opened!

Our contribution of "NOW" would help IV to have the lobbying firm grease those gates or even remove the gates!

Let's not suffocate in another backlog! Let's be safe than sorry!
We have 21,000 members, 14,000 active, so if 10000 contribute $500 that would be 5 Million! Sure that's hefty enough to talk to the lawmaker as they are busy doing the fund raising for the next election. Let's not make IV Core to ask for money again, we should have heard and seen thier efforts and achievements! Let do it Guys!

Default I have seen

I have seen several posts by contributors and recurring contributors like this on several threads. All the non-contributors and free riders just visit and sometimes just dont even come to this thread if the subject hints of any fund drive.

Look at the number of posts. It did not even cross two pages. Had this been a breaking news thread, now it would have crossed 50 pages, I bet. Also the most questions asked will be from the new non-contributing members. Attitudes must change and it will take time for some and it never changes for some.

Great.. Thank you.. I know we have more then 10,000 members who are active.. But not even half of them have contributed single.. It is time to show IV core that we care about our issues and we will do whatever we can to help ourself and help our community. We have long way to go for GC.

This is time to start contributing.

Thank you all..

Default Upgrade $20 to $50

I have changed my monthly contribution from $20 to $50.

And I plan to contribute a bigger amount very soon...

My "Card Production Ordered" mail is out, but still I believe this forum will have my support for a loooooong time...

I personally feel very proud to be part of this group. This group has given all of us an identity and reason to work together and traverse the system as a group....Just remember a couple of years back when all we could do is silently and helplessly read the news on the forums and feel miserable...

Now we have to strength and we need to grow stronger. We have the confidence that we can turn around and change a lot of things. For motivation just look at the pictures posted on the BusinessWeek article.

http://images.businessweek.com/ss/07...y/index_01.htm


I request everyone else to NOT postpone setting up their recurring donations. You don't have to do it TOMORROW...do it TODAY, as if this was the last day to file your applications. Would you postpone your act if USCIS had given you a deadline. Today is your day to contribute and you should feel proud to do it.


And, I trust you will not close your browser window today, without shelling out a dime at least!



Conbtributed so far ~ $600 and will contribute more.
