[IPn] 2nd week

Hello Pumpers and Friends,

It is the second week of the Spring pledge drive and I know 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.

The ILLINOIS challenge needs $49 of your matching contributions!

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 our friends at the pump 
companies. With the exception of the pump companies, the other 
avenues have so far failed to produce any results. The biggest 
portion of support for Insulin Pumpers still comes from the forum 
members. Of our ~ 5000+ members, about 1 in 20 have made a 
contribution over the last year. It seems to me that there really 
should be a higher percentage of contributors. 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. Another good way to make a significant contribution is to 
challenge the other members to make contribution to match your pledge
of $100 or more. If everyone that is a member just pledged just 50 
cents a month, way less than $10 a year, there would be no need at 
all for our pledge drives.    

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 health. 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.
