Dear Colleagues around the World,

Last week, LINGUIST sent you our Advisors’ Challenge, asking you to match the approximately $5,000 we have raised from among us. But I object! There are only a few of us and a great many subscribers to LINGUIST around the world.

In the name of the Advisors, I will raise the stakes: we challenge you not only to match our donations, but to triple them before Tuesday. With over 50,000 subscribers (between the mailing lists and social media), finding $15,000 or so comes to under $1.00 per subscriber. And there are those who can pledge more than $1.00 to compensate for those who, for many good reasons, cannot contribute this year.

With gratitude from the Advisors – we challenge you!!

Margaret Winters
