I made a mistake and I need your help!

When I set up the Convention this year and did the fundraising pitch, I made a mistake. I asked for credit card numbers.

Since Ruth Bennett (our Treasurer) and I took office, we have discovered that we have no way to process those cards. We have investigated several services and plans that would allow us to do so.

What we have found is that they are too expensive, and we just don't run enough credit cards to make it cost-effective.

So, if you made a monthly pledge at Convention, or if you read LPNews & Views, and want to make a pledge, here is how to do it.

Scroll down until you find the amount of a PayPal button that you like, and click it. If you don't like PayPal, go on down to the Donor Town Square button. Donor Town will allow you to make any size pledge, or one-time donations.

If this is a pledge you made at convention, then I would take it as a personal favor if you start your pledge and also make a one-time donation to cover the months of April 'til now. I know, it's a lot to ask of you, but you already knew I was a pushy ol' broad.

I want to thank you all - for all you do, for your donations, for your support, for your activism.

Now, go have a gentle day . . . :o)

If you want to use PayPal for a monthly pledge and want a different amount than you see here, please eMail me - Chair@LPWA.org, and I'll make it happen.

To catch up your pledge, or to make a one-time donation -

Click this box to use Donor Town Square to make your pledge.

Donor Town costs us a little more, but not everyone likes PayPal. It's your gift, you decide how to deliver it.

Thanks again for investing in Liberty and the Libertarian party of Washington!

The event spans three Seattle waterfront parks: Elliott Bay Park (North Entrance), Myrtle Edwards Park, and Olympic Sculpture Park (South Entrance).

Event hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Admission to Seattle Hempfest is Free.

If you're not sure what Hempfest is about, there is more info here.

LPWA will have a booth and we need volunteers. We'll need a few to help set up at 8am Saturday, crews to work thru both days, and a few to help take down on Sun night at 8pm.

Vans Warped Tour! August 15

This is a fabulous day long music festival! Lots of fun, all day long, with the opportunity to work an outreach booth. We need 3-5 young, high energy, committed volunteers for this gig. At least one needs to be a driver, with a station wagon or small truck to carry the gear.

We need to put this team together this week, or we won't be able to do it.

The Olympia Hemp Love and Freedom Rally 2009 August 22-23

Free and open to the public. Originally founded in 2003 as the Olympia Hempfest but quickly grew into one of the cities major event in just a few years. Each year the Olympia Hemp, love, and freedom rally strives to break down the barriers and remind people about our heritage and our responsibility to come together and be active citizens.
