Sponsors | Amid turmoil, $105 in generous gifts

As I race to the end of the quarter, I want to acknowledge recent gifts totaling $105 from readers in Arizona, Delaware, Michigan, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Most of those gifts came in smaller amounts, illustrating the power of microfundraising. "Thanks for keeping GCI's feet to the fire," one reader wrote.

Together, they've helped me reach 82% of my goal. The breakdown:
  • Reader donations: $928 
  • Advertising: $2,358
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.
