Do you read the Week Online? If so, we'd like to hear from you. DRCNet needs quotes and reports from our supporters on how they are putting our flow of information to work, to use in grant proposals and letters to funders or potential funders.

Do you use DRCNet as a source for public speaking? For letters to the editor? Helping you talk to friends or associates about the issue? Research? For your own edification? Have you changed your mind about any aspects of drug policy since subscribing? Do you reprint or repost portions of our bulletins on others lists or in other newsletters?

Please send your response -- one or two sentences would be fine -- to [email protected]. Please let us know if we may reprint your comments, and if so, if we may include your name or if you wish to remain anonymous.

Thank you in advance. Equally important, the Week Online is currently in an interim period between grant cycles (which we anticipate will last two to six months, probably three), in which we do not have specific grant funding for it, but instead are financing the Week Online out of our general, unrestricted funds. We like many nonprofits are experiencing a cash crunch this latter part of 2001, and need the help of our readers now more than ever. This newsletter costs about $4,000 per month to produce; we have raised $2,000 toward the interim costs, hence need at least another $6,000, probably $9,000.

You can help keep the Week Online going through to 2002 and our next round of grants with a tax-deductible donation to the DRCNet Foundation. Or, if you don't need the deduction, you can support our grassroots legislative work like the Higher Education Act Reform Campaign (opposing the law taking college aid away from students with drug convictions), by making a non-deductible contribution to the Drug Reform Coordination Network, also very much needed right now.

If you can help with a donation, large or small, take a few minutes and visit http://www.drcnet.org/donate/ to make an encryption-secured donation by credit card or PayPal -- if you want, sign up to donate monthly and never have to think about it again -- or use our form to generate a printout to mail in with your check or money order, or just send your donation to: DRCNet, P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036. We can also now accept contributions of stock -- our brokerage is Ameritrade, account #772973012, company name Drug Reform Coordination Network, Inc.

Again, note that donations to the Drug Reform Coordination Network are not tax-deductible. To make a tax-deductible donation supporting our educational work like the Week Online, make your check payable to DRCNet Foundation, same address (and let us know this if you're contributing by credit card or are giving stock).
