Hello!

I'm sending this message on the weekend because I didn't want you guys to miss out on the daily funny during the week.

This email is kinda long, so for those that don't want to read the whole thing, here's an abstract:

SHORT VERSION:
GCFL IS, AND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN FREE! However, since we will never put ads in the emails, we prefer to ask for donations about every 6 months. We humbly ask for a small donation (just a dollar bill would be great). Again, there is no obligation. So, if you feel so inclined, please send your donation to:

GCFL
Box 100
Harvest, AL 35749

Write checks to "GCFL". You can also use PayPal (www.paypal.com) if you prefer. Please use email address gcfl@gcfl.net . Please remember PayPal charges 2.9% + 30 cents for each transaction, so please take that into account.

Please do not send non-US money because it costs too much to convert. :-(

Thanx helping us keep GCFL alive and kicking!
John Price
GCFL Director


LONG VERSION:

As some of you may have guessed, it's that time again. About once every 6 months or so, we humbly ask for a small donation to keep things running.

Before you run off to unsubscribe from the list saying, "I thought they said this thing was free!!!" let me reassure you: GCFL IS, AND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN FREE! There is no obligation to send any money. I feel like if we can't afford to run GCFL for free, we will just end it and move on.

However, it's always been my position that instead of peppering the mailings with advertisements everyday, I prefer to just ask for a small donation. I've always felt that if we do a good job, some people will be willing to donation a dollar or two every six months, and if we keep out costs down, it will be enough. I think I would if it was the other way around. :-)

So far, for the last five and a half years that we've been mailing funnies, GCFL members have always come through wonderfully, giving when they can. I've always been encouraged by just how generous GCFL members are, and I'm quite frankly honored and astounded that it has been so successful. I never dreamed that GCFL would have grown like it has.

We receive emails and letters nearly everyday from members saying how much the enjoy GCFL, and how it helps them start their day. It seems people from 12 to 91 enjoy our funnies, and we sure enjoy making GCFL what it is.

Yes, I admit that we still have a lot of work to do. I have many plans for GCFL, but a lot of that was delayed by personal problems (lost a job, wife had a huge car accident, going to school for a masters degree, etc.), as well as just time in general. Nonetheless, with God's blessing, we will make the plans come true.

Some things we are planning include:
- Redesign web page
- Have a logo contest to create an official GCFL logo
- Maybe bumper stickers or t-shirts (if we have enough demand)
- possibly branching off other light-hearted services

We only ask for one dollar because we feel it's not too much to ask, and just about everyone should be able to handle it. If you can't, don't worry about it. We'll continue the best we can. Plus, lets face it... it's just a joke mailing list. No one is going to pay a lot for jokes. I know I would not. But hey, I'd send one dollar! ;-)

So, if you feel so inclined, please send your donation to:

GCFL
Box 100
Harvest, AL 35749, USA

Write checks to "GCFL". You can also use PayPal (www.paypal.com) if you prefer. Please use email address gcfl@gcfl.net . Please remember PayPal charges 2.9% + 30 cents for each transaction, so please take that into account.

Please do not send non-US money because it costs too much to convert. :-(

Thanx helping us keep GCFL alive and kicking!
