Time out
By Perry Willis
Today's Downsizer Dispatch . . . Quote of the Day: "With $10,000 we'd be millionaires! We could buy all kinds of useful things. Like love!" -- Homer Simpson Subject: And now, a word for our sponsors So far this month we've . . . * Recruited 727 new DC Downsizers. * Pounded the powers that be with 31,974 messages. * Transmitted 318,746 educational Dispatch emails. AND, we've recruited 1,252 more new Downsizers and sent 114,414 more messages to Congress so far this year than we had at this time last year. Things are going very well for our mission. But we must pause from this good work. Only 5 days remain in the month and we're $2,596 short of the needed funds to pay our bills. That amounts to about 13 cents per subscriber to this list. We understand that a lot of money is going elsewhere right now, but we still need to cover our small expenses if we're going to be here when the dust settles from the current campaign season. Please start a monthly pledge or make a one-time contribution to keep us going. Hopefully, we'll be back to work tomorrow. Thank you for being a DC Downsizer. Jim Babka President, Inc. P.S. Checks can be mailed to, Inc. 1931 15th St. Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44223 Also, if tax-deductibilty is crucial for you, you can contribute to this team's education project instead, the Downsize DC Foundation. P.P.S. The Downsize DC Foundation can also accept appreciated securities. Rather than sell your stock, pay capital gains tax, and then donate a reduced/net amount, you can donate the security directly to Downsize DC, who can then sell the shares without paying the tax. It's a win-win: You avoid contributing tax to the bloated federal government and succeed in making a larger contribution to our goal of Downsizing DC! If you'd like to do this, all you need to do is hit "Reply" to this message. Please share with us your complete contact information, the name of the stock, and the number of shares, and someone WILL be in touch. Thank you in advance.
