Dear Friends of the JIDF,
Shavua Tov! We hope all of you had a meaningful Shabbos.
We are contacting you because you either support our work currently, have either contributed in the past, or you have taken advantage of our advertising and consulting services. We wish to thank you very much for your support or investment! You are among a select few that comprehends the importance of our work.
We've been going through the statistics, and while we have been the most proactive organization on the planet against antisemitism and terrorism on the web, successfully advocating for the removal of thousands of antisemitic and jihadist pages and for the privacy, safety, and security of Israel and the Jewish people, we have been a miserable failure when it comes to fundraising. Perhaps the reason for this is because unlike most Jewish establishment organizations, fundraising is not our priority. Our work is.
Although we have have over 51,000 fans on Facebook and 52,000 followers on Twitter with whom we repeatedly ask for support, less than 500 people have put their money where their mouth is in the pas 3.5 years since we've been asking for support. Fewer than 25 people support this effort monthly, which brings in less than $200 per month. Although we very much appreciate those that support us, we have not able to make up for the thousands of dollars and hours that go into the effort.
If everyone who has supported would contribute just $5-18/month, we would be much closer to where we need to be, financially, and our work will be able to continue! Can you make such a commitment today? Here is our page with the various options: http://budurl.com/SupportJIDF
If you already support us monthly, perhaps you will consider increasing the level?
If you cannot make a monthly commitment perhaps you can make a one-time donation? Another way to contribute by simply going to http://www.PayPal.com and by sending funds directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also offer various advertising options and consultation services, helping people to reach our network, or to enhance their own. Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about that.
Again, we very much thank you for your support! Unfortunately, we just need more of it in order to continue.
Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.

P.S. Please let me know if you'd like to be removed from our lists. Also, my apologies for using the email@example.com address. This is an official account, though. You can verify by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org, if needed. Due to lack of funds, we have been unable to invest in savvy marketing solutions and have to reach people the old-school way.
