What's $5 worth to you? How often do you take a $5 bill (or a 5 Euro
or your equvalent) and spend it without really thinking?

With $5 you could:

~Buy yourself and a friend a coffee 
~Leave a tip at a restaurant 
~Buy a nice Mother's Day Card 
~Do that pile of laundry that's been sitting in your wardrobe
~Buy 1.5 beers
~Get a shot of good Whiskey
~Take the bus to visit your dear old grandmother

$5 pays for half an hour of graduate assistant time on LINGUIST. In
that half hour one of our student editors can:

~Post three issues to LINGUIST
~Input five linguistic web resources into our database
~Run a backup of our webpages
~Debug a small section of code in one of our new web forms
~Write five emails to subscribers
~Create a new table in our database to accomodate new data
~Remove all the annoying Fund Drive Pop-Ups that are on our site
~Write a cleverly worded plea for you to donate 'Just $5'
~Lots and lots more...

Please help us reach our target and make a donation to LINGUIST -
'Just $5' makes a world of difference!
