GIVE A LITTLE BACK 06

In the spirit of our being a member-supported organization rather than an
organization that charges a fee for membership, the Interaction Design
Association (IxDA) is kicking off its first pledge drive—Give a Little Back
06. If you value the discourse on the IxD Discussion mailing list, enjoy our
emerging community of interaction design practitioners, and believe we need
to build a home for interaction designers, please consider making a small
financial donation to the organization. Help IxDA grow and serve your needs
better by contributing to the cause.

Our pledge drive will last one week, and the challenge to our members is to
raise $5000.00. If each of you gives just $5.00, we can easily achieve this
goal. The pledge drive starts today and ends Sunday at 6:00 pm PST. I will
send updates to the mailing list each day to let everyone know our progress
toward reaching our goal.

Contributing is simple. Please give what you can. To contribute online, just
go to ixda.org, then click the Donate link. Alternatively, you can send a
check via snail mail to:

Interaction Design Association
PO Box 2833
Westport CT 06880, USA

We are currently working on Project Donahue, which will provide a better
online experience for the IxDA community. Project Donahue will launch soon,
but you can check out a preview right now, at:

GIVE A LITTLE BACK 06 UPDATE.

In our first hours of the pledge drive we have raised $140.00. Our goal is
to raise $5,000.00 by Sunday afternoon. That means we need to earn at around
$700 each day to make our goal.

Here's a challenge in the next 2 hours (it's 1:00 pm Monday PST) I will
personally match each dollar contributed up to $200.00 as my contribution.

If anyone else wants to mount a match challenge please contact me off list
so we can coordinate.

We raised $90.00 during the match period, with match that equals $180.00.
For the day so far we are at $320.00.

We are on our way but we need to earn at least $700 by the end of today for
us to have a chance of meeting our goal for the week. Please consider
giving the organization what you can.

Apologies ahead of time for filling the list with pledge drive messages. If
we make our goal early will stop asking! There's an incentive to give!!!

Here is our update as of Tuesday Morning.

Yesterday we raised $365.00. Its a great start but short of our goal for
the day of $700.00. We still need to raise $4635.00 by Sunday this week!!!!

So if you enjoy the list and want the community to grow consider giving what
you can.

Today from now until 12:00 noon Pacific Time we have another challenge grant
for the list courtesy of board member Josh Seiden. For every $1 raised
during this period Josh will contribute $1 up to $200.00. Thanks Josh!

Make Josh's match count and contribute now!

Here's a list of some of yesterday's contributors who have volunteered to
allow us to publicly thank them:

Jack Bellis
Tori Breitling
Jack Moffet
Boby Nath
Fred Leise
Justine Sanderson
Antonella Parese

Thanks again for your support.

Greg
