It’s that time of year again, folks. Begging time!
“Aren’t you guys always begging?” you may ask astutely. To that I answer, “Yep! But right now we’re doing it formally …with letters!”
You see, July 3rd, 2008 will mark the 100-year anniversary of Joel Chandler Harris’ death.
And I ask you, is there a better way to recognize a full life and a lasting legacy than to ask for memberships?
Our goal is to have 400 memberships by the anniversary of JCH’s death, and we’re offering a special $100 “centennial” membership that comes with perks like free books and free admission and a sense of doing good. Though the last one comes every time you support the Nest! Hint! Hint!
In order to reach this goal, we’re bringing out the big guns. That’s right: personalized hand-written notes on each letter.
This is one of our most basic and successful tactics.
You know how you feel 10x as special when you get a card written by hand, rather than typed? Well, you’re not alone. Years and years of diligent research have shown us that everyone loves that. Well, at least literate people.
The only downside to this method is that it takes forever. Well, maybe not that long, but these have been a couple hand-cramped, semi-cranky days, I tell you what. If it weren’t for Scrabulous, I don’t know what we would have done.
