Default you can't have it for free

This is a really sad reflection on us. How can IV continue if 99% want a free ride?

We shell out hundreds to get our EADs renewed year after year but we cannot contribute five bucks to an effort which can potentially free us from this cycle?

In the past we had a minimum of $50 and were able to get funds during our campaigns. After repeated requests we agreed to bring it down to $5. I do not think we succeeded.

Default The minimum should be kept $50

The minimum should be kept $50 and $5 campaigns avoided.

By contributing $5, it does removal of guilt (of not contributing) but adds little to the funds.

Dear All,

It is something sad, but like it or not, people do not seem to be comfortable when we ask them $ 50 and above. Again, this is unfortunate, but this is the reality.

We can draw inspiration from the last Presidential campaign of Pres Obama where the minimum contribution was set at $ 5.00 (or may be $ 10.00) We all know that the Dems raised a record amount of money ; that is because several thousand people contributed small amounts. This is an acknowldged fact!

Apart from the money, what is also important is mass involvement. It is certianly better to have 100 members who contribute $ 10.00 each than 10 who contribute $ 100.00 each. Every movement becomes successful when more and more people get involved and also get the feeling that the organization belongs to "THEM"

There are atleast 50,000 EB friends in this mess. Even if they all on an average pay $ 10.00 we could land up with $ 500,000!!!

It is the strategy that will win the war!

Best wishes!!!
