FSP Fundraising Letter (2/10/05)
Greetings from New Hampshire,
I hope you had a happy and healthy holiday season. Our family enjoyed our first Christmas together in our new home in the Free State of New Hampshire. We were warmly welcomed by dozens of Free State Project participants many of whom recently moved to NH themselves. The buzz is truly exciting!
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2005 Porcupine Freedom Festival and sharing New Hampshire and all it has to offer with you.
But we have two financial problems right now and we need your help to take care of them.
First, the Free State Project is behind on its financial goals for the year. That means we're unable spend as much on advertising, publicity, and other recruiting activities as we should be. Honestly, our last fund raising letter brought disappointing results and it's time to catch up.
Second, we're stepping out in faith by making the Porcupine Freedom Festival bigger and better than last year. Plus, we're keeping it free to attend! That means we need to raise some funds to take care of Porcupine Freedom Festival expenses up front.
We can catch up on our budget and keep Porc Fest free with your generous contribution. The good news is, if everyone pitches in a little bit, the budget will be back on track and the expenses for Porc Fest will be covered up front!
A $20 contribution from every person reading this letter would enable us to meet our entire budget for the year and cover all of our expenses for the Porcupine Freedom Festival!
Your contribution will buy advertising for the FSP and Porc Fest, help us pursue publicity opportunities, and help local groups represent the FSP at events around the nation. It will also cover Porc Fest expenses like lodging for speakers, renting the hall, and making sure we have merchandise in stock. Don't forget the superb media coverage Porc Fest creates!
If you'd like to contribute, we have some special gifts for you. With a new $20 contribution, you'll receive 3 special gifts. Contribute $100 or more and you'll receive special recognition at Porc Fest. And with contributions of $500 or more, you'll receive an invitation to the Leadership Luncheon with Free State Project leadership at Porc Fest.
You can make your contribution online with a credit card, or by mailing a check to the FSP. Please visit our donate page.
Please make the best contribution you can today. We're counting on your help to fund our budget and make Porc Fest a success.
Thank you for all you do for liberty!
