As you'll have noticed if you've been tracking the ORG fundometer, since launching the ORG-GRO supporter drive three short weeks ago, we've scored a phenomenal 10% growth, as well as a pile of one-off cash donations. This means we're on track to double the number of monthly fivers we receive to support our work during 2008. Thanks to everyone so far who's put their hands in their pockets for ORG. And if you're yet to pledge your monthly fiver, please do so now.
Some of these fantastic early results are due to volunteer efforts, such as Danny O'Brien (pictured)'s pledge to blog every day for a month if five people sign up to ORG (he's also pledged to resuscitate NTK - ntk.net - if ten more of his readers agree to give ORG a tenner a month) and the posse of ORGsters (Glyn, Sheila and Richard) who spread the good word at LUG Radio Live. Just as pleasing is the fact that the extra work we're putting into our financial stability has not limited our campaigning.
We're also excited to announce that the volunteer who attracts the most new supporters will win an Eec PC, donated by the kind people at Asus. If you convince someone to join ORG, be sure that they note your supporter ID on their sign-up form. We'll keep a league table of supporters for the next few months and announce a winner on ORG Day (19 November) 2008. For more details, see the ORG-GRO page. Also, don't forgot that there's a mystery gift (ooh!) for new supporters who sign up to donate ten pounds a month, and also for existing supporters who increase their donation level to ten pounds a month.
