WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GETS GOING.
TOUGH: THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE.
A $10,000 Matching Fund
Alex New of NY, NY, an 80-20 Life Member, pledged that fund to
match dues of members joining from today on. If 200 of you will each
pay $50 to become family members, the sum is $10K, the full amount of the
matching fund. That means 400 additional members and $20,000
will be added to 80-20. That'll help keep 80-20 alive and fighting
for you. The red line below will shoot above the green line again!
