Sponsors | Double your money! A generous reader will match your contributions from now 'til Sunday

[Updated at 8:39 p.m. ET.] Since posting this item, I've now received 11 donations totaling $205. Those gifts came from readers in California, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York and Ohio.

As promised, my Alabama donor has matched $200 of those donations, in a contribution I received moments ago via PayPal.

Of course, I certainly appreciate any additional gifts that other readers might like to make between now and Sunday.

My original post: As I near the end of the quarter, a very kind reader in Alabama has promised to match any reader contributions 100% up to a maximum of $200 from now through midnight Eastern Time on Sunday, March 31.

With advertising, I'm now at 82% of my quarterly goal, so I'm trying to pull in another $715 over the next four days. Here's the breakdown so far:
  • Reader donations: $975
  • Advertising: $2,310

I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. Please use the PayPal "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.
