We Need Your Help
An Easy Way to Support PEERS at No Cost to You

Dear friends,


I'm writing to apologize for a mistake which cost us over $4,000 and to ask for your support of our work. You may have noticed that the amount we are in the red for this year jumped from about $2,500 in the end of May to $9,700 in early June.

Part of this is because at the start of every month, the amount we are in the red for the year jumps several thousand dollars. This is because that's when we add our expenses for the month (about $6,000) to the amount we are in the red. The red ink amount then gradually decreases over the course of the month as caring supporters like you make donations. Read this webpage for more on this.

Yet this month our deficit jumped even more as we had an extra big expense due to bad judgment on my part. We've been upgrading all of the PEERS websites to be cell phone compatible over the last year. We finished all but our community networking portal early this year. When our genius tech guy talked to me about completing this last website, he recommended a major overhaul as it ran on an old verson of the drupal system.

Long story short, I should have asked how much this upgrade would cost and set a limit. I had thought it would cost a couple thousand at most, but it ended up costing us over $4,000. I would never have agreed had I known it would be this much. So that is why we are now nearly $10,000 in the hole for the year. I offer my sincere apologies for this bad call.

I donated $1,000 of my own money to help cover this extra expense. Now I'm asking you to help bring us back to a more balanced budget. Please help out by contributing using the following link to donate online or mail a check using the address below.
