Dear LINGUIST Subscribers,

I joined LINGUIST in August 2004 without a perfect understanding of what my new
job entailed. As a linguistics student at Wayne State University, I was
somewhat familiar with the LINGUIST List website, yet it never occurred to me
that I was becoming a part of something so big. It all seems very simple - I
post messages to a mailing list and perform other duties related to running a
website - yet the reality of it is so much more complex.

Since generously being given the job of Calls and Conferences editor, I have
been exposed to more aspects of linguistics than I ever thought existed. I
never intended to pursue a degree in linguistics, and it was on a whim and in an
effort to fill an opening in my schedule that I took an introductory linguistics
course during my first semester at Wayne. By the end of that class, I knew what
I wanted to do with my life. I knew that linguistics was my future.

And so, here I am, right in the middle of it all. As I'm posting Calls and
Confs, I often wonder if this conference, this linguist, this talk, will be one
that makes a profound impact on the field of linguistics. I often wonder how I
could possibly be deserving of such amazing opportunities and experiences. I'm
not sure that I am, but I am grateful nonetheless.

It should be obvious by this point that LINGUIST has become a very important
part of my life. None of this would be possible without all of you, our
wonderful submitters and subscribers; LINGUIST exists both for you and because
of you. Thank you for your generous donations and support, and please donate if
you haven't already. We need you just as much as you need us!

Thank you,
Amy Wronkowicz

Subject: How to donate...


This Year the LINGUIST List hope to raise $48,867. This money will go to help
keep the List running, by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form.

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to
donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:

http://linguistlist.org/donate.html

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU
Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST,
without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your
company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
