why your dollar counts

by Eileen Gunn



Total so far: $936
Goal: $5000
Donors: 43 (Thanks!)


Every person who donates some money is voting for The Infinite Matrix to continue.

Every person who sends in something — a dollar is fine, if that's what you can spare — will be counted when I am trying to get money from sponsors or grant-making organizations.

Sponsors and grantors don't like to give money to a site that only a few people care about.

So, if five hundred people send $10 to support the site, it means something different than fifty people sending $100, even though the total is the same. (Of course, if you can send $100, please do!)

So this is your chance to speak up and get counted: send me some ammunition for when I'm talking to people who could make this kind of fundraising unnecessary.

Sunday, we topped $500, and I put up a Sterling blog, and a new Runcible Ansible as a bonus. Thanks to everybody who contibuted!

When we hit $1000, I'll post more Sterling and a new Richard Kadrey story. When donations reach the $2500 level, I'll post Ben Rosenbaum's new story, The Death Trap of Dr. Nefario. When I get $5000, we'll go back to business as usual.

Thanks for any contribution you can make. Donations via the Amazon Honor System are completely anonymous, so if you're embarrassed about not being able to toss in a fifty, that's the way to go. There is no service charge to you for either Amazon or PayPal. — Eileen
