DP Fundraiser - Final Push - 100% complete!

Thank you to special donor B, who put us over the top with a $5,000 donation tonight. Amazing. Incredible. Thank you to everyone who cares enough about the Daily Paul to have donated to the fundraiser, making it possible to stay on the air for at least another six months. Not only I, but everyone here, and the multitudes yet to come, appreciate your contributions to spreading the cause, and the message of Liberty. Thank you.

A big Thank You! And another Thank you! to everyone who has contributed to the fundraiser so far, to help keep the Daily Paul on the air. Joη made this spiffy ticker for the final push, which ends this Friday. Other ways to help:

Hey Michael, my brother

Hey Michael, my brother returned $25 that I lent him six months ago and since I never planned on him paying me back I'm giving it to you for the DP. I'm also going to up my script from the $5 to $10 one and put a picture of my black cat on it. Thank you, Michael I know I haven't been a registered for that long but I've been visiting often since 2009.

A Black Cat!

I upped my subscription so you see my little Yorkie! May she rest in peace! She always liked cats!

The ticker feed should be fixed

Jon was tinkering around under the hood last night. We think he found the wires that weren't connected, and hooked them up. Looks like it is working. I'm off to the post office, and to do a little shopping.

Did I mention I lost 11 pounds last month? Mostly by not eating wheat. I need to tell you guys that story.

Looking forward to that story!

Congratulations on making reaching 100% on the fundraiser!!

Success!

Congratulations. Plan to lose another 11 this month?
I lost 6 last month which hasn't happened in a long time.

Michael, I am going to send

Michael,
I am going to send you some hard money when I get to the next town over, hopefully in the next week. Thanks for your patience while I get over there. Nobody here (Delta UT) sells silver and I have to drive to Fillmore. In the spirit of Ron Paul I don't want to send you fiat.

I promise I will donate again by Friday..

Shit has been hectic over here. I promise, again, that I will donate by Friday. We can't allow the DP into the dustbin of history. This site is absolutely instrumental in shaping the debate of 2010 and 2012.

WE CAN WIN!!

Nightly Update

Looks like I'm going to have to keep updating the ticker manually. The PayPal feed is not working properly.

Ok, so, since the last update this afternoon, $458 has come in through the PayPal. Updated totals are:

Updated totals:

bitcoin - 1040 (roughly - though the exchange rate fluctuates pretty wildly)
paypal - 10,998
mail - 2,025

Total: 14,063, or 70% of our goal.

Can we make it? I'm also sending out another big stack of thank you cards, maybe 150 or so. So if you made a donation in the last few days, keep your eye on the mail.

I always loved getting stuff in the mail when I was young. Now the only thing I get in the mail is bills. LOL. I just hope that when you open that mailbox and see that postcard, with that picture I took of the Lexington Minuteman... I don't know what I hope. I just hope it gives you a little piece of sunshine in your day. Let's you know that you are important. Because you are.

And not really for me. If the Daily Paul perishes, I'll find something else to do. I can drive a cab, a delivery truck... I can bag groceries. I got my real estate licence last year. I can do something. I'm not afraid of hard work.

What you're really doing is paying it forward. By keeping this site on the air, you keep this knowlegde available for who knows who will stumble upon it some day. The Daily Paul has a wide reach. A . W I D E reach. We're in the top 3,000 of US websites.

We. Us. I can't do it without you. I hope you all know that.

Peace and thank you.

Keeper of the resource needs your help keeping the resource. It is my pleasure and my honor, even though sometimes it is a pain in my ass.

Ha ha ha!

Good night. Next update comes tomorrow after I visit the Post Office.

I'll

be making another small donation tomorrow. (no need to send another post card to "Brite Ideas") Thank you for the first one. Only you would hand write thank yous to everyone. Very nice touch. I hope the goal is reached.

BTW, also waiting for some "sunshine" for the ole P.O. box....;) I'll give you a heads up when I do.

Michael Nystrom's picture

Jefferson - really - you've done enough

Honestly. I'm serious.

I'm glad you got the postcard. My wife was looking at them the other day and said, "Where did you get this picture?" And I said, "I took it." To which she replied, "YOU TOOK THIS?"

Looking forward to the sunshine, though! I've been meaning to give you a call. The days have been running long recently, writing all those postcards, lol!

Hope you're doing well. I lost 11 pounds in the month of January, basically just by giving up wheat. (Which is no small task, but FYI).

Ooops...

Too late.....;)

Already sent.

Your wife must not know (As Nui likes to say) "you're kind of a big deal in these parts."

BTW, Sunshine's on the way. Should be peeking out of the clouds around noon today. I'd like to have a chat first before I send it on it's way. (hey that rhymes)

Thank you Michael

God Bless you for everything you do for the cause of liberty. Keep up the good work!

Uncle Sam is refusing to refund most to the illegal"tribute" that he confiscated from me all year; but I managed to eek out 30 dollars from our budget. I have been here since about Sept of 2007 and come frequently for my "daily dose" of liberty news. thank you for providing for this site and allowing such a free range of issues to be posted that I have been able to further my own education, as my homeschooling teaching is coming to an end this year. Kudos for a great service to the Liberty community

It's In The Mail

Sorry it took so long. I am in the process of moving and have had a lot of expenses. I don't have an address for a card so just save the stamp! No telling what sending everyone postcards cost!

skippy

a real live postcard

it has been so long since I've received one....that was great! Thanks.
I might try bitcoins later this week too depending on things.

Got my postcard today

Thank you, Michael. Very classy!

Analytics

Michael,

Is it possible for us to see the geographical analytics from the DP visitors?

The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.

Thank you!!!

I think we're experiencing some technical difficulties with the ticker, so don't be alarmed if you don't see your name or the amount show up there.

The PayPal feed isn't the easiest thing to work with, but I definitely see the money having shown up in the PayPal account.

Thank you!

bitcoin - 1040 (roughly - but the exchange rate fluctuates pretty wildly)
paypal - 9,851.61

$12,861.61, or 64% of the way there!
