(Original post on Jan 10, 2012) "A sad day for GIC: Youtube/Google has posted my earnings and payment for next month... $553 dollars. I am going to be speaking with a friend tomorrow about helping me pay rent next month. As for GIC...it's fair to say I will be make one last appeal to our Members this week for Pledges ( I personally need 1100 dollars minimum a month to do what I do full time as I have the last 5 years, this includes cost for GIC Radio and our website, etc./120 for GIC - 980 for my rent, internet, elec., pet care, pocket money, etc. )
I have come to be at peace with this as I know all things happen for a reason, yet, I do not intend to be homeless with 2 cats come March. So I have decided to put GIC to rest in the next several weeks after I have found a full time job. GIC radio will continue thru the end of Feb at this point.
Thank you for everything and all your attempts to keep GIC alive, but since GIC can no longer take care of me I must take care of myself and my animals on my own."
We will be make one last appeal to our Members this week for Pledges.
Thank you and I love you guys very much,
Jan. 11 - The next day Members and other leaders in our movement rally to save GIC through a Pledge Drive.
We would need:
120 members to Pledge $3.99 a month or
50 Members to Pledge $10.00 a month or
25 Members Pledge $20.00 a month or
10 Members to Pledge $50.00 a month or
5 Members to Pledge $100 a month
We would basically need to have a steady $ 500 in Pledges a month to keep things going and growing.
using PayPal, Dwolla and WePay
(VIDEO) Bernard shares in detail what and why. Miriam Delicado and GIC Admin.s chime in.
UPDATE 1/19/12 8:50 AM ET, USA: As of this moment we have approx. $227.00 in monthly Pledges.
17 Fair Share x $3.99
5 Bronze x $9.99
6 Silver x $19.99
Less Service fees
= $227.81 in monthly Pledges
AND $628.00 in single donations minus service fees (not calculated for this update).
( One Time Donations are being directed to an emergency savings account to cover immediate expenses. At this time Feb. personal expenses HAVE been covered with these funds. Now let's save the Network. Thank you. )
Our Minimum Goal is $500.00 in monthly PLEDGES so we are approx. $273.00 short of our goal.
DEADLINE - Feb. 1st.
The GIC Admin Team, it's Members and Fans thank you all who have contributed.
