[IPn] Summer time!
The summer pledge drive is well under way, with almost $700 in
pledges so far and the PHOENIX challenge still waiting for $110 in
matching pledges. We need to raise money to pay for the summer months
of July, August and September. Just as with public radio, no one
likes pledge drives, but they are a necessity since well over 50% of
Insulin Pumpers funding comes directly from the forum members. In the
last twelve months, 545 + forum members have made over 1300
contributions to "the cause".
Please contribute $10 or $20 toward matching the generous challenge
from our PHOENIX forum member.
For those of you that are new to Insulin Pumpers or have not yet

your contributions are fully tax deductible. There are basically three
types of donations that you can make. Each benefits Insulin Pumpers in
a slightly different way and are there to offer a means for you to
tailor your gift to suit your circumstances. If you enjoy the
comradery, tips, hints and sense of community that Insulin Pumpers
brings to you, and you are financially able to contribute, please

because it provides a predictable steady income that we can count on.
For those of you that would like to make a contribution of $100 or
more, please consider a CHALLENGE to the forum membership which they
must match with their individual donations of $10 and $20 that add up
to the challenge amount. To make a challenge gift, please visit
