Continuing to fundraise on a blustery Thursday

I’ve tried to be good in terms of not badgering you with fundraising posts, and I’ve gotten a wonderful response to the, “Pay the taxes so we can stay at home” drive, but there’s a long way to go.

If you’re willing to lend a hand as I try to raise $748 to pay off our property tax bill for Aunt Annie and just plain old buy a cell phone because my old one won’t be supported as of January 1st (for a cost of about $500), we’re in the nascent stages (i.e. the very start) of building toward those goals.

I think we might have enough to get AA the month’s taxes in a couple of days, but not the whole bill, and the rest…Well, I do use the phone for work, but it’s hard to convince folks that not-for-profit businesses like this one need to have things like working laptops and cell phones when the investment back into the website isn’t as readily apparent as a hockey trip somewhere (but it still matters!).

So, if you’re willing to lend a hand, I would greatly appreciate your support as we try to keep the lights on and the blog up and running:
