Sponsors | Reader makes good on pledge
I recently received $5 from an Ohio reader, who earlier challenged other readers to contribute to this blog. In an e-mail via PayPal, the reader said: "6:55 putting her money where her mouth is." Thank you -- especially for contributing donations two months in a row!
Still, with that gift, my fundraising is really lagging this quarter. With barely six weeks to go, I've earned just 32% of my goal. The breakdown so far:
Reader donations: $274
I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. Please use the PayPal "Donate" tool in the green rail, upper right. Or mail cash and checks payable to: Jim Hopkins, 584 Castro St. #823, San Francisco, Calif., 94114-2594.
