[IPn] only a few days left

I know on a Monday morning, you probably don't want to hear 
about making a pledge to Insulin Pumper, but tonight or tomorrow you 
will go on-line and expect IP to be there with notes from friends and
fellow forum members. Insulin Pumpers comes to you a few time a year 
and asks for your financial support.  

If you are financially able and have not yet made a contribution to 
Insulin Pumpers, won't you take a few minutes to mail a check or 
visit our secure server and make a contribution now.  

The biggest reason to make a contribution is simply because you enjoy
the forum and the friendship and support that it brings you. Your 
financial support is needed to keep Insulin Pumpers healthy. We 
currently have a CHALLENGE from a forum member from NEW MEXICO
that will double the value of your pledges up to a combined total of 
$250.00 for all pledges until the challenge is used up. 

Of our thousands of members, around 5-6%% have made one and 
sometimes several contribution over the last year. It seems that 
there really should be a higher percentage of contributors and you 
can help us reduce the amount of time and energy spent on fund 
raising by making a sustaining contribution of a few dollars a month.

If enough forum members become sustaining members, the need for 
pledge drives will decrease.  If everyone that is a member just 
pledged just 50 cents a month on an annual basis, way less than $10 a
year, there would be no need at all for our pledge drives.   

Some of you have asked if there is not another way to raise money for
Insulin Pumpers. Many ways have been tried, direct mail, contact with
meter and insulin makers, and of course the pump companies. Most of 
these sources pretty much dried up with the last economic downturn 
and they have not returned.... sadly... and.. other avenues have so 
far failed to produce any results. So.... that means that the most of
our support comes from  Insulin Pumpers  forum members.  

To accept the New Mexico's challenge,  or to provide much needed 
sustaining support, visit:  


ANY major credit card or PayPal will be used.

If you prefer to send your contribution by mail, address it to:

 Insulin Pumpers

 Milpitas, CA 95035
