Bob Giordano told me that their fundraiser was stuck for eight months
and funds are scarce.   I told him "I have a big audience of peeps and
I rather like the idea of abusing my powers for freecycles."   So Bob
offered bicycle-ish candy if we raised big gobs of money.

So, in a couple of days we managed to put a thousand bucks in the
pocket of freecycles.

And now, I have a guy that says that if another thousand bucks goes
into the freecycles fundraiser, he will add a thousand bucks more.

the last coupla days, my peeps have pushed that up to $4420.  Hot
diggity dog!  And now if the total can get up to $5415, this guy will
add another $1000.

So, dear MCN list, I am calling on you to throw a few bucks into the
pot for what may very well be the most noble non profit I have ever
seen.  I think their full operating budget is something like $600 per
