[IPn] Problem with pledge drives

One of the biggest problems with pledge drives is that many people
think that they don't need to contribute because somebody else will,
or they plan on doing it soon, but never get around to it. 
Unfortunately, nothing is free and the landloard, utility companies, 
and many more manage to get around to it every month. Insulin Pumpers 
is made possible by contributions last year from people just like 
you. This morning's tally shows 3660 active members, of those
over 114 have participated as new or continuing contributors to 
Insulin Pumpers' Winter pledge drive. 

It is the 13th day of the pledge drive and so far together we have 
raised $2611.00 this month toward the goal of $6000.00 for the Winter 
quarter -- almost half way :-)

If you enjoy Insulin Pumpers, can afford to make a donation, and have
not yet done so, won't you please take the time to visit our easy to
use secure web page and make a contribution TODAY. Your $10, $20, or
