421 for ‘21. Makes no sense, right? Well, actually it does. The Monthly Monetary Support (MMS) team has set a goal of 421 participants in 2021. It’s ambitious, we know. But in 2020 you helped us grow from 256 members to over our goal of 321, so we’re counting on you to do it again in 2021.
By now most of you know the drill. You pledge at least $10 a month, withdrawn from your checking account or charged to your credit card. Up to 50 percent of what you give can go to an affiliate of your choice, and the rest goes to ACB. And if you’re already part of the MMS program, you can increase your monthly donations in $5 increments.
Since our convention will be virtual again this summer, we’ll have an email address and a phone number you can call to sign up or increase what you’re already giving, but you don’t have to wait until then. You can call the Minneapolis office at (612) 332-3242, or go to ACB’s website, www.acb.org, click on Support ACB, then Donate Now, and choose the Monthly Monetary Support (MMS) program.
As always, those of you who sign up or increase your donations on your convention registration forms or during the convention will be eligible to win daily prizes. And, again this year, everybody who has joined the program or increased their monthly donations since the end of the 2020 convention will be eligible to win one of two grand prizes; the first is a $500 gift card, and the second is a Sonos One 2nd Generation Smart Speaker.
We hope we’ll hear from many of you between now and the end of the convention in July. Remember, 421 for ‘21!
