How close did we get on Friday?
By James Wilson

Quote of the Day: "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." -- Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoi (1828-1910) Russian writer

I wrote on Friday to say we needed $2,800 to make our April budget. Here's the response . . .

34 one-time contributions for $875.28
4 new pledges for $106
Total income: $981.28

Balance needed today: $1,819.00

Can you help?

Last Friday's appeal generated a bunch of encouraging notes, several with a familiar theme: "I'm short on funds, and this is all I can do."

We greatly appreciate that! We're trying to do a lot with a little. In our unique plan, everything counts -- even a dollar per month as a pledge on Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.

When you go to our secure form, you'll also see how to invest in DownsizeDC.org using PayPal and Bitcoin, or how you can mail cash or check.

Congress has been especially bad, lately. I'm eager to get past this necessary business and to get back to our primary work. 

Thank you for your support,

Jim Babka
President
