Erowid Announcement #48
October 19, 2004
Friends of Erowid,

We're pleased to announce that another anonymous Erowid supporter has stepped forward to make a matching gift offer. New or expired members who make a donation of $33 will have their contribution tripled making it a total of $100 of support for Erowid (qualifying $33 donations trigger a $67 donation by the anonymous member).

This is a great opportunity for students and others who can't afford to give much but would like to help keep information about psychoactive plants and chemicals freely available. We hope this matching grant will help us reach our goal of 1,000 Erowid members by the end of 2004. For more details, see: Erowid.org/donations/donations_matching.shtml

We're currently in the thick of writing the next issue of Erowid Extracts. Members should expect to see it in their mailboxes next month.

We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at submissions@erowid.org.

peace,
fire & earth
