Your "if the 8000 daily readers" thing today
really got me to thinking.
When the pension comes in at the beginning of May, I'll send you a check.
It won't be much....we don't have much....but it'll be all the spare money I have. I'd rather you have it for what you're doing than anyone else I can think of.
Thanks for being there and for all the hard work you do.
Dear Annie, Thank you for writing. I intend to always keep AHNC free for viewers...also pop up ad free, subscription free, etc!
I had a tremendous response to my request yesterday for support dollars.
The reason I suggested a dollar a month donation is that it is affordable for 90% of AHNC viewers. People that cannot afford to send me money can participate in the AHNC welfare-to-work program--just spread the word!
By snail mailing a buck a month with a 37 cent stamp, it not only helps AHNC stay online but it helps the US Postal service too!
All Hat No Cattle has around 8,000 daily viewers.
If each viewer sent just one dollar a month -- heck, I'd be happy if half of the viewers would oblige -- I'd have a much better site because I could hire someone!
Send a buck to:
All Hat No Cattle
PO Box 5237
Navarre, FL 32566
or click below
Thanks to everyone who sent in support yesterday! I will email you today!
And an extra big thanks to Andrew, Dan, Nancy, Clay and James!
