Let's not beat around the bush. In order for Hopeful Parents to qualify as a tax-exempt organization, we need to pay a one-time fee of $850 to our federal government.
Are you willing to become a Founding Member of Hopeful Parents to help us meet this goal of $850?
The bottom line? We're looking for 34 people to contribute $25. If you're one of the first 34 people to join Hopeful Parents, you'll forever be remembered in this organization's history as one of our founders.
Do you have $25 to become a member?
I hope you'll consider it. We really need the money.
I, for one, would like to see Hopeful Parents lifted from electronic existence and begin advocating at the local, state and national levels. I would love to see this organization put faces with names through local and regional chapters. I have hopes for a retreat for our community in several towns across the nation, where we as parents could find comfort and solace with one another in a tranquil setting somewhere -- even for only day!
But this will only work -- we can only get to where we're going -- by taking one step at a time. We've come a long way since this blog started a year and a half ago. I don't want $850 to stop us from continuing to pursue our dreams.
Could you please become a Founding Member of Hopeful Parents? And do it today? I'd love to get this filing off to the IRS tomorrow!
