Somewhere in your Christmas mail will be this year's Appeal letter asking for your financial support. As it is arriving a little later than usual and in the midst of the season to rejoice this note is to alert you to its arrival and ask that if you cannot attend to it now that you put it on the top of your "to do" pile.
Last year you responded very generously, as we made our operating budget goal of $18,500. Reaching this goal was a new milestone for the Affiliates and the hope is that 2012 will result in the addition of another milestone in the efforts of the Affiliate Movement to maintain financial stability.
We urge you to be part of Affiliate success by donating today. Hopefully we will not only reach our budget goal of $24,500 but will also continue to broaden our support base as occurred in 2011.
In peace and thanksgiving for the many ways in spirit, service, and finance that you give.
