Happy New Year Everyone!
Last year was our first year for The Vegan City Meetup and it was amazing! I have met so many wonderful people and learned so much. I am going to try to make this year even better. In order to do that I really need all of your support!
I know that times are rough but In order to keep the meetup going I have got to ask for dues. I also know that we have all enjoyed the meetups that we have had so far and that we are all excited to keep it going. I cannot afford to pay for the dues and all the other administrative expenses on my own.
There is a monthly fee for Meetup.com , and I have spent money on other items too:
For example money that has already been spent:
$162 in subscription fees As of May 2008
$15 in Plastic cups, paper cups, and plastic utensils
$19 in labels to make name tags
If everyone chips in and gives a little, this will not only help me out with the subscription fees, I promise that it will benefit everyone. We can plan some really great meetups and it won't take a huge donation. I am only asking for a minimum $5 donation/membership dues through PayPal. I will only ask you for this once a year so please put it into perspective; $5 for one year is only 40 cents a month.
I Need Your support. I can assure you that you will see your dues in action. I will post the total amount of dues acquired. I will also post my budget so that you can see what is happening with the money. I will also take all suggestions into consideration and post polls so that we can decide together what to do with the available funds. Let's make Vegan Meetups legendary!
