Thanks to the generous contributions
of more 70 DRCNet members, the Week Online has at least four more weeks
of life -- nearly $7,000 raised in eight short days!
Please help us complete the
Week Online's budget through the middle of the year, when additional grant
funding for it may arrive. The Week Online currently costs $1,400
per week, going up soon to $1,600 when we launch our Spanish and Portuguese
translations as part of our post-Mérida Latin American outreach
campaign. Your donations, large or small, will help us raise the
$11-14,000 needed to achieve this goal.
So please visit http://www.drcnet.org/donate/wol.html
and make a donation to support the Week Online -- or send your check or
money order to DRCNet, P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036 -- or visit
to sign up for a monthly credit card donation.
The Week Online is used by too
many drug reform supporters, to empower their own work, to be allowed to
go under. Nothing could boost the spirits of our prohibitionist opponents
more than seeing the world's leading and most widely-reaching drug reform
newsletter cease to publish. But that's what's going to happen without
your help. So make a donation to make sure this doesn't happen --
to donate today! You can also make a non-deductible donation to support
our lobbying work -- visit http://www.drcnet.org/donate/
to make a contribution of either kind.
$1,400, tax-deductible, will
fully fund one issue of The Week Online and all associated costs -- Phil
Smith's salary, 20 percent of David Borden's, plus rent, Internet distribution
and other overhead -- and a little extra to print it out and mail it to
prisoners who've requested it.
$34,000, together with other
funds received or likely, will complete The Week Online's budget for all
of 2003. $38,000 will let us translate it into Spanish too, or $40,000
will get us Spanish and Portuguese, to reach into all of Latin America,
$100, $50, $25, even $10, if
that is what you can afford, times 1,000 contributors -- only one out of
every 25 people on this e-mail list -- will add up to make a huge difference.
$30 or more entitles you to a choice of free DRCNet gifts!
Donations to the DRCNet Foundation
are tax-deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Donations to the Drug Reform Coordination Network would support our lobbying
work and are not deductible. We can also accept donations of stock:
Our broker is Ameritrade, phone: (800) 669-3900, account number: 772973012,
DTC number: 0188. Or send your check or money order to: DRCNet, P.O.
Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036.
