We had a wonderful outpouring of generosity for our Giving Tuesday 2016 Campaign. Because we expected a high percentage of checks through the Postal Service, we extended the event from November 29th through December 7.
I just posted this and less than an hour later the Postman came by with three more donations which raised our total to $6034!
The result was beyond surprising. Seventy one generous people donated a total of $5861.25. Donations ranged from $1.00 to $1000.00. Each gave to their ability to do so and we really appreciate that. The funds will be used during 2017 to refill our inventory of literature that is distributed at no chage all ove the earth. All one must do to get a copy is to go online to our website and enter an order. When we total the cost of printing and mailing for most orders each costs about $13. International orders typically cost just over $15. All who use our order system are encouraged to make a free will donation (PayPal or check) to help offset the costs of this program.
We receive no government financial assistance and most of our funding is provided by our clients who seek to understand more about this disease we share so they can make fully informed choices for treatment.
