A way to raise a *lot* of money quickly
Is everyone aware of paypal.com? Of course you are. Well, Citibank has
launched a similar program called "c2it". They have a promotion that expires
April 4, where they will refund the first $10 when you send money to
someone. There are no transaction fees for the sender or the recipient,
although I suspect that will change eventually. I used c2it about a week
ago to buy a used ethernet card on eBay for $10, and sure enough $10 showed
up back in my account a few days later. How many people read APD evey day?
500? If everyone signs up for c2it and sends $10 to the defense fund by
April 4, $5000 would be generated and Citibank would subsidize the whole
thing. Sorry for the short notice -- I thought the program lasted through
the end of April.
I just sent some money to John to make sure he can receive it. I also saw
something about an "affiliate program" and a $5 incentive on c2it's web
page. Maybe if jbenn at jblaw_org signs up as an affiliate, another $5 subsidy
per donation could be raised. It is certainly worth checking into.
