Our Fundraiser Is A Disaster!!
I have to admit to being pretty useless at raising funds. I have to admit that I would prefer to read and research article that add to our awareness and respect for others, rather than creating graphics and crafting slick PR slogans that pluck at the heart strings and emotions of ICH readers.
In Fact I refuse To Do So. I have more respect for you and myself than to use such methods. I will simply state the facts.
This month has been a disaster with only 178 readers contributing to support ICH in our efforts to provide an alternate source of News and Information.
We need another 122 people who value this service to click the link below.
