A check for $1,ooo is on its way.

Thank you Ted. 

So far we have five contributions from forum members totaling $320 - plus Ted's generous contribution, puts us at $1,320.  That's a good start.  $13,680 to go. 
I'm going to assume that if you want to be recognized as having contributed you will say so, as John Balderston, Chris Owens and Ted Campbell have done.  No need to announce the amount unless you want to.  It's also fine to remain anonymous if you prefer. The important thing is to make a contribution.
 
Donations via the TIGHAR website are made via PayPal.  If you prefer to send a check, the mailing address is:
TIGHAR
2812 Fawkes Drive
Wilmington, DE  19808

If you prefer to use a credit card please call us with your information at 302-994-4410 during regular business hours.  If you miss us leave a message and we'll call you back. We accept VISA, Mastercard, and Discover.

Who's next?

if you don't mind me asking is this for the legal fund or essential day to day running costs (both important IMO)?

Day-to-day running costs are the more immediate concern but the legal bills are piling up.  I leave it up to the individual where they want their contribution to go.

Four more contributions today totaling $100.  Total is now $1,420 with 11 contributors.  That's 1% of registered Forum members.  We can do better than this.

I'll call next week with a credit card number. Wish I had the money to match my belief in what you're doing...

We're on a roll. Seventeen contributors so far totaling $3,205.  Only $11,795 to go.

Joining TIGHAR counts.  If you've been thinking of joining this would be a good time.  ;D

When I donate, unless I'm feeling really specific, i.e. the New Zealand trip - I usually put "greatest need" on the "FOR" line of my checks. I trust Ric, and trust TIGHAR, to apply the money where it will do the most overall good. Why do I do it this way:
1) By sending TIGHAR a check, I know that they are getting 100 percent of my money.
2) By leaving where to spend it up to TIGHAR, I don't have to think about it. Doing to much of that can make my head hurt, and it's the (rapdily deminishing) weekend. Thinking takes too much effort.

P.S. - the check really is in the mail.

Not sure if becoming a member counts for donations, but I joined as an Associate.  Glad to do it!

Contributors: I too sent a check for an associate membership. (Finally felt guilty enough after 1 1/2
years of "lurking.")
