[IPk] In defence of the pledge drives



Hi all

I used to be an IP-UK administrator.  Whenever the pledge drives start,
loads of people unsubscribe.

If you don't want to contribute, please don't go - just ignore the pledge
drive messages.

However, IP has 5,000 members across the US and UK.  It needs $5,000 per
quarter to maintain the server and related equipment that enables us to
support each other.  Plus, in the US, the funding position is not as rosy as
we think.  IP posts supplies to help people who are struggling financially
to be able to stay on a pump.

So, if every member of IP (and IP-UK) gave $4 per year, there would be no
need for pledge drives.
Lets halve that as some people are really hard up, or not earning, or under
age.
So, if 2,500 people gave $8 per year, there would be no need for pledge
drives.
To us in the UK, that's less than a fiver according to Google.

Is IP-UK worth #5 per year to you?

Its easy to donate, especially  by Paypal.

Thanks for reading.
