The latest quarterly FReepathon was a success and is over now. However, these events are a pain in the butt for those that run and operate them and for two to three weeks they dominate the sidebar and each thread. It is time we work to eliminate them once and for all.

Monthly Donations!

Many FReepers of good will are signed up for a monthly donation to FR as opposed to making a quarterly contribution. There are advantages to this system for both the site and the donor. FR can operate on a sounder fiscal basis by having money coming in monthly and as a donor you can spread your contributions out in smaller increments over an entire year.

Currently FR gets about 7k in monthly revenue. If we could get this up to 25k, there would be no need for the FReepathons. You can sign up for a painless $5-$10 a month (more if you are inclined, several people are at $50-$100!), which would be processed through a secure server by Jim and his family. Plus, running bulk CC donations on a monthly basis is less expensive than using PayPal. Even if you can only afford $2-$3, it would be a tremendous help!

It's time we help put FR onto a more secure and professional revenue plan! Please, bump this thread and use your ping lists to encourage your friends and family to GO MONTHLY!

We need to get 1800 FReepers who would be willing to donate an average of $10 once a month!

Your "click here" isn't working. I give up. So I guess it's freepathons forever.

Do it! I have been a $15/monthly contributor for the last 3 years. It is quite painless and you will receive a monthly reminder about the automatic deduction. Couldn't be easier.

BUMP for later. I'm already a monthly donor but I've been meaning to increase my amount.

For those of us who are outside the banking system, there really isn't a way to pay automatically. But I'd gladly continue sending in my contributions given just an e-mail reminder - which is a lot less hassle than the FReepathon.

BTT.

I have an alternate plan, but it involves a little faith on your part.

TRUST ME.

Good idea! Jim and Tammy could set up a monthly reminder for people who would like to send cash or a cashiers check/money order!

Thanks - they wouldn't have to even do that much - just put the reminder near the poll question on the sidebar or something for any of us who send cash/MO.
