A brief note
By Perry Willis

Today's Downsizer Dispatch . . .

A quick update. One week ago today we had the largest increase ever in our monthly pledge support -- nearly $1,000. We've made tremendous progress on pledges. This means that over $3,000 of the $14,000 a month it costs to run is now secure. Thank you to everyone who made micro- and macro- pledges to achieve this big surge.

Today, with only 3 days left this month, we absolutely must shift our focus. We have no doubt that small monthly pledges will get us where we need to go in the long run. But while the value of our pledges mount, we still need to pay the bills that aren't yet covered by those pledges. We've so-far raised $5,000 of the $14,000 we need for June.

Summer is always challenging. But we're even further behind than I anticipated. Please help us pay for June. Any contribution between $10 and $9,000 would do the trick. The drive for monthly pledges also continues. You could make a micro-pledge of $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, or $9, or a macro-pledge of $10 or more. You can make your contribution or start your monthly pledge here.

We regularly post a roster of recent contributors in the Downsizer-Dispatch as our way of saying thanks. The team-member who does that just moved this past weekend and is playing catch-up. Samuel Johnson said, "Better two fires than one move." But he'll soon catch up and we'll post the names of all the folks who've helped us build

You can choose whether or not to have your name listed in a future Dispatch when you make your contribution. Remember, you can make your contribution or monthly pledge here.

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
