All Aboard Ohio $250 NOW Campaign

Hello members and friends! I am writing to inform you of a new campaign to support All Aboard Ohio in its efforts to promote passenger rail development in Ohio — conventional intercity, high-speed, regional commuter, light-rail and streetcars.

Columbus member Eric Childress has issued a generous challenge: the $250 NOW Campaign. Will 19 members and friends respond to his challenge? Twenty members donating $250 each will raise $5,000. That will pay for all office-related expenses for the rest of the year!

All Aboard Ohio has a great office space in downtown Columbus with very affordable rent. Phone, internet and office supply expenses bring our total office expense for the rest of the year to $6,000. But All Aboard Ohio is undertaking cost-saving measures that will reduce those expenses to $5,000. We think that’s very affordable considering the location, where our volunteers and interns will work this summer on mailings, phone campaigning, and spreading the word on the importance of Ohio having real transportation choices.

Will you help All Aboard Ohio meet the $250 NOW Campaign challenge? Remember All Aboard Ohio is a 501c3 nonprofit association and that dues and donations may be tax-deductible in accordance with the IRS code.

Thank you!

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
