[IPn] Re: Pledge drive
Received this note from a "veteran member".... it says it all!
Hey Insulin Pumpers! I have been a member of this listserve for nine
plus years and I have found IP to be a great source of support to me.
IP has 5000 members and being a member is generally free but
it does take money and your support to keep it running. Many of us
are local people with jobs, some of us are on on limited incomes.

Please make your donation soon as it would be so much appreciated!
