It's time to remind you about Buck-A-Month Club (BaM)!
As you know I had set a goal to reach $2000 by the end of 2011. We are
about $500.00 away from meeting that goal!!!
$12.00 a year from every person on the FML, yahoo group, ferret owner,
ferret lover... anyone! WE CAN DO IT! Or you can set it up on your
billpay ... $1, 5 10, 20 a month and just forget about it... it goes
out of your account and because it's a low amount you don't even notice
it. Of course you can set it for ANY amount you want it.
Sooo... since we are in October....Did you send in your donations for
Buck-A-Month Club? You did? Well Congrats! Hmmm I think I see some of
you staring at the computer confused going "what in the world is this
person talking about?!".... Ok ok.... soooooooo let me explain.... for
those that don't know... or those that don't remember... or those that
need this time to write the check and find an envelope...... yes, you
can take the envelope back from the ferret ---- and no, you cannot ask
the ferret to lick the stamp for you because you won't get it back in
a useable shape! :-)
About 9 years ago is when it all started... with such a simple
suggestion... send Support our Shelter (SOS) $1.00 a month. One little
dollar... that doesn't sound so bad... and when you think that $1.00
is still worth the same in this "club" as it was 9 years ago - thats
pretty BIG news! We decided to call it... the Buck-A-Month Club. You
didn't have to be rich to be in the club. ANYONE could join the club...
ferrets, kids, cats, dogs... shoot... even FISH... and whoever else
could come up with a dollar a month!
In 2002 I wrote: "Think of what that money would mean to all of the
shelters out there? $1.00 a month won't break you. You wouldn't even
know it was gone. " This STILL holds true. I have a certain amount that
I do a billpay for and I don't even notice that it's gone each month...
because what I send in is still less than what I could buy ONE lunch
We have several people that just pay for the whole year at once.
$12.00... and we have several others who send in their money monthly
as they get it. You can send in $1.00 at a time... or more!
You can use PayPal or do BillPay from your bank and not have to think
about it again....but of course you can STILL donate more if you want!
Be sure you include your name for SOS Honor Roll! We also need your
address so that we can mail you your Membership Card (see below for

Now... here is the pretty cool part... a couple years ago... we started
to send out a BaM Membership Card to people paying their membership
"dues" for that year. We have continued that each year - and this year
is no different. The January Membership cards for those that just paid
in January are in the mail today!... not only do you get to help SOS
help shelters around the world... but you get a cute card for doing it
to show that you are a member of a Special Club.
