Sponsors | Wow: $135 in new contributions
Most of those gifts came from donors who've given before: $50 from a Michigan reader who's given nearly $200 in the past; $50 from California ($155 before); $20 from Arizona ($45 before), and $10 from Ohio ($70 before). Plus, I received $5 from a new supporter in Canada.
In a PayPal note accompanying their gift, one reader was kind enough to say: "Great Dubow/Martore story. Keep it up!"
With advertising, I've now hit 11% of my goal. Oh, Canada, indeed! The breakdown:
Reader donations: $203
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.
