We Need Your Help
PEERS Needs Your Help
"PEERS helped me move from a place of fear and hate to one of seeking spiritual development. Iím 36 years old and had been away from that path since I was 18.†You have helped me view seemingly negative events as challenges and opportunities to grow.† A strange synchronicity has further confirmed that what I thought was mechanistic, material reality, was merely an illusion.† Iíve found the deeper reality to be far more beautiful and empowering than I could have imagined a year and half ago." -- Todd, a PEERS subscriber
PEERS really needs your help. We depend almost entirely on your support to continue this important work of spreading inspiration and promoting global transformation. As we are deeply committed to supporting a new paradigm based on love and cooperation, we have chosen not to put any advertising or promotions on our websites or in our newsletters, and everything we publish is available free of charge to all who are interested. We are playing our part to bring in this exciting new paradigm, and we really need your help to continue moving powerfully forward.
I first want to thank all of our regular supporters and those who have already so generously supported our work in the past. Thank you so much for helping us to keep this meaningful work spreading to ever greater numbers of people. You support allows us not just to survive, but to thrive.
As of Dec. 1st, we are $8,039 in the red this year. This is more than ever before, and without your help, 2011 will be the first year we end up in the red. We do our best not to bombard you with requests for donations, yet twice a year we make an appeal like this, as we really need your support to close our budget gap. Every little bit helps. You can help us with a financial donation and/or by supporting us through purchases you might make at amazon.com, as described below.
As PEERS is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit, all contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. To contribute using your credit card online, please visit the link below. You can make a one-time donation or help us even more with a monthly donation. Please use the link below for either of these options to support us in building a better world for all of us.
To send a check or money order, please make your donation out to PEERS and mail it to:
1607 Francisco St.
Berkeley, CA 94703
We welcome checks and money orders in currencies other than U.S. dollars, though there is a significant fee to process these, so please only use other currencies if the amount is equivalent to US $40 or more. Direct bank transfers are also very welcome and can be made in smaller amounts. Please contact us for information on this.
If you are uncertain about making a contribution, we ask you to consider the value of our work both to you personally and to our world. Then ask yourself, is the work of PEERS worth the price of a good book or a good meal in a restaurant to you? If so, we encourage you to donate that amount or more to support our work. Even $5 makes a difference.
