Erowid Announcement #50
December 17, 2004
Friends of Erowid,

Happy near-end-of-year to all of you. It's been a great year for Erowid and, as we cruise through the "holiday season" and bring 2004 to a close, we'd like to wish you all a healthy and happy 2005.

Help spread the word: The current membership drive announced last month has been so successful that the original incentive grant was fully matched by early December. Two other donors have stepped forward to keep this offer going until January 31 as originally planned. Help us reach our goal of 1000 members by the end of the year by joining at the $33 level, and have your donation tripled to become $100 of support.

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

peace,
earth & fire
