Our Members are keeping us alive.

With all of the uncertainty for businesses and thus advertisers in these times, we are more reliant than ever on support from our readers. My mother was dubious that people would contribute to a campaign not tied to a nonprofit. Your rebuttal to this line of thinking has left us encouraged, humbled, and grateful.

The signups for Membership are speeding up. Since March, monthly membership increased by 72%, putting us over halfway to our goal (at right).


Other good news: Members stickers finally arrived, so they will be in the mail to all of our supporters soon.

One Member recently commented on her application, “Keep doing what you’re doing!” At this rate, we will.
