Conservancy needs to meet funding goal for Conglomerate Falls Oct. 1

Letter from John Griffith, North Woods Conservancy president:

Thank you so much for donating to Conglomerate Falls (CF) and helping to spread the word about the project. Hundreds of people have donated to the project, from $3.50 to $3,000 each. Together we have raised just over $20,000. Only $10K to go!

North Woods Conservancy (NWC) must raise the $30,000 down payment by this Friday, Oct. 1, 2010.

If everyone who has already donated gets one other person to donate $25, we'll make it.

Remember those chain letters and pyramid schemes of the 70s and 80s, where supposedly if you sent a dollar to the top name on the list, then in a couple weeks you'd get a dollar from 10,000 people (that somehow never came)? Well, the CF project is kind of like that, with one big difference: instead of having only one winner at the top of the pyramid, in this case everybody wins! We all can go and visit Conglomerate Falls.

I think sometimes people think that the amount of money needed is so large, that their $25 won't make a difference

Wrong! Many hands make light work. All we need is 400 $25 donations. All donations are tax-deductible!

But remember this:

  • $100 donors are entered into drawing for one week at the cabin (10 prizes)
  • $500 donors get one week at the cabin (includes deer hunting rights)
  • $1,000 donors get a week at the cabin and their name on a plaque at the cabin.

Send your donation to NWC, PO Box 124, Calumet, MI 49913. Questions: Call 906-337-0782.
