    I keep donating to these things, but never get the promised tag line added to my profile. I donated $100 to the first thing and was supposed to get the "Founder's Club" thing. Not that it is a big thing, but I do support these things and donate often.

    Send a message to jpierce and he will take care of it. If the e-mail addy that you use for paypal does not match the one that you are registered here with then he has no way of knowing who you are.... Also, since he has a full time job it sometimes takes him a while to get everything here updated as well as keep up with moderating, etc etc etc...

    Yeah, John will take care of it. And he will soon update the Lorimeter as well - we had enough for radio ads in Houston which will go on till Christmas eve!

    But we need to raise another $1,500 to fire up the Texas Panhandle next, so give if you can! The radio people want me to sign the contract like tomorrow!

    Folks - time is short and I know it's Christmas but we need to raise a little over $1,000 by this weekend to pay for radio ads in the panhandle area, Lubbock-Amarillo.

    Legislators' aides are telling us that the radio ads are working - that legislators and even police/prosecutor groups are warning up to the idea of open carry legalization THIS COMMING SESSION!

    Hopefully you all are in a new credit card bill cycle by now and can give at least $10-$25 or more now.

    Give at Please give if you can at http://www.opencarry.org/thunder.html

    Sent $100.00 today for the word to get out to my friends,family, and all of the good folks in the Texas Pandhandle about supporting Open Carry legislation. I know for a fact that once they know how important this is, they'll be ' all in.'

    Thanks for the big donation, I am doing a press release tonight or tomorrow about "gettin' the pan handle into the fire" or somthing like that.

    Let's hope some more folks have some cash to spare these next few days so we can pay for both the Panhandle ads and El Paso ads at least!!

    Thanks. if every OCDO member gave 425 we would have an OCDO blimp circling Ausatin

    Seriously, if we do not get back on track on fundrasing, there will be no more radio ads and El Paso and Greater austin will not get the wake up call we need for success.

    Thanks - also, PM John so he can update your status as a donar - he tries to link up your pay pall email address with the one we have on file but cannot always do this.

    This is a friendly "BUMP", and a reminder to folks to keep the cash coming. This fight affects everyone no matter where you live. Lets take the fight to them and roll back the tyranny, rather than losing for want of a few bucks and having to fight to keep the rights we have now.

    Regards

    Mike is there any other way to send the money because my US bank account doesn't have any paypal connection at all.

    Btw how soon do we have to raise the whole amount before the bill is put into the legislative machine??

    Thanks.

    You just pay by credit card on pay pal - no bank account needed.

    Donations are used merely to fund radio ads at this point - whether a bil is introduced is up to the state legislators, but driving the petition numbers up and generating publicity is going to help us make that happen.
