Erowid Announcement #46
August 17, 2004
Friends of Erowid,

We hope everyone in the Northern hemisphere is enjoying the warmth of late summer. As the tomatoes ripen out in front of Erowid Central, it's a reminder that there are just two weeks left in the season's matching grant campaign. We really hope to take full advantage of this opportunity and there are still matching funds available.

If you have found Erowid a useful resource and would like to do your part to keep it freely's a great time to make a donation. Most donations of $200 or higher will be doubled by this matching offer. For more details, visit:
