OK I wasn't going to post this....
BUT there are 911 donations to DU
out of fucking 100,000 members....
I know some are are no longer here...
I KNOW some people can't donate right now...
(been there)
but if even half of the half of the half donated.....
it would be awesome.....

why are they struggling to get a measly fucking 1000 donations???

come election time you will wish you donated.....

1. My dear lost...
I hear you, sweetie...

The drive seemed to be going really well early in the week...

And now that we're near the end?

What happened?

I'm not sure, really...

Great idea for the thread!

2. Well, true, but in the defense of some
Edited on Sat Nov-17-07 06:18 PM by flvegan
Almost every fundraiser takes a week (the Valentine one excluded). There are 4 a year, some folks only jump in once. That's 4,000 donations a year. Pretty good.

And of the 100,000 members, only a fraction participate at any given time.

I'm only saying this because I donated and I can be a dick.

On edit: I can't believe my 911 Donations post that I did the minute it hit didn't tickle more funny bones. Buncha hacks.

5. Some folks also donate monthly.
I used to, and when I did, I often did not participate in the fund drives.

6. It's hard for me to do the ones right before and after the holidays.
It's just too tight.

10. Even $5 makes a difference
Especially when you're counting number of donations instead of dollars. I raise money for a living and I know the psychological lift one gets when the goal is hit.

FTR, I donated twice to this drive; once for me and once to give someone else a star. Neither were huge amounts but they were counted in the overall total.
