Sponsors | In an envelope with no address: $60
The reader enclosed a yellow post-it note that said only: "Catching up." But the other contribution I just received did come with a return address, Arizona, and it was $20. With advertising sales, those $80 in new donations bring me to 95% of my goal.
There are now just three days left in the quarter -- and year! -- for me to pull in $183. The breakdown in the home stretch:
Reader donations: $1,321
I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. Please use the "Donate" or "Subscribe" tools in the green rail, upper right. Or mail cash and checks payable to: Jim Hopkins, 584 Castro St. #823, San Francisco, Calif., 94114-2594.
