Dear Forum Users:
It's that time again for Fund Raising to keep this priceless resource, the BCC & FC Forums, on the air. The last Fund Raising Campaign was 3 years ago. Cole Data has managed these funds well, as well as donated more time and resources to the Forums than any company or individual should, in terms of good business practices.
In the last Campaign, we raised over $1,200, thanks to the generous donations by a small percentage of the forum members. We need more people to donate for this Fund Raising Campaign.
The Goal for this campaign is to raise $1,200 by Sunday May 8th.
Lenora and I, BCC IDUNA, just made a $100 donation/payment to help keep this wonderful resource on the Internet. We need another 11 members to match this contribution or 22 members to donate $50 each. If you can not afford $100, $50 or $25, then make a $10 donation. If every forum member made a $10 within the next 48 hours, we would meet our goal of $1,200.
Where do we all go, when we have a questions about equipment, projects, ideas, parts and material sourcing? We all ask the forum:
"Anyone set a drifter or spinnaker?"
"What engine to install for re-powering?"
We have a photo gallery for these beautiful boats and there are 1,000's of photos in it. This will all disappear without funds to support the forums.
The list goes on and on and the answers are at the Forum. We all think this is free. It's not. Someone has to pay the server fees, the electricity, the technician time, etc. Without funding, this priceless resource goes off the air. The amount of money we raise does not cover all the costs. Coledata donates more time and resources than any company should. Why? Because John Cole likes these boats. It's that simple but we also need to donate. Nothing is free.
If we cannot raise the $1,200 by Sunday May 8th. This fund raising campaign will be my last campaign.
