aviko21 has a spectacular aura about aviko21 has a spectacular aura about
Angry Do we deserve a GC?

To all those people who are here for free information and don't think about contributing think about this:

To people who swamp this site when a major announcement is going to be made have you ever thought how this site runs or why you were able to file for a greencard earlier than you ever would have?

Can we look beyond our selfish interests and ever think beyond "Whats in it for me"?

Can we selfish people even come close to thinking about anything but our own filing which incidentally came because of the lobbying efforts of a few brave individuals at IV?

I veered off to NUMBERSUSA following some threads and came back with an eye opener: Their Budget this year is $3.5 million and they expect to spend $4.5 million for their efforts which we all our familiar with.

All the members who are contributing to IV are not stupid. They understand that if they make even small contributions like $50 or so a month, it might help the cause of all.

Why can't all the members contribute the cost of a dinner and a movie every month. Adds up to $100 x 23000members = GC for all.

I am contributing another $100 which i hope maybe every noncontributing (yet) member will match.
Congratulations to IV on the successful groundbreaking rally and more importantly the meetings that were organised.
I hope that Logiclife doesn't ever have to post notices to raise funds again.

Yes, you are right. They probably don't need greencard because they are satisfied and relaxed by getting receits only.

Dude - I went on a rampage over this weekend - did not sleep at all and was trying to make all these selfish people understand the importance of the rally uisng a multiple thread technique.

Few days after the rally was announced - We were banking for the success of the rally based on the crowd from the North East.

The let down was disappointing - this put a lot of pressure on us - some of us were drained out - we resorted to all sorts of techniques - pleading, begging, requesting, encouraging and what not

i hope people realise after this rally that life is just not about being selfish

But this rally was a great success - we had all the wonderful people - people with a heart and people who have a passion - i met people from all nationalities, web surfers who came across IV during google search were present.

Those who supported us from the behind - a big big thanks to you all.

And people who flew from Seattle, Bay Area, LA and all far off places - this shows your wonderful commitment

Tri State and DC local were a major let down

Default Next work in on us( lazy bums..myself included)

Exactly right on point AVIKO.

Ok fellows, all of us lazy ones who could not go to rally ( myself included);
Lets give IV rally heros some rest and shoulder some responsiblity.

Can i speak for you all ( who could not go to rally), that we will add our efforts now and will go the extra mile..may be it any effort.
WE WILL DO IT

My Salute to "IV Rally Heros".

Thank you guys.
--------------

Now For contributions, come on folks...come on..think about it,
You flaunt latest gadgets...buy costly cars ....
and when it comes to contribution...you donot want to contibute
Yet still...when rules kick your butt....lawyers donot listen to you...
you turn to IV....( I did want to say the word...but i have to say it)
"you shameless" fits the description...

Lets contribute...for a real cause. I tell you.. it feels good...real good.

Default staying positive...

We bring people to the cause by focussing on the positives. the rally with 2k people was a positive. For a grassroots movement to take shape and organize itself into a force that can produce 100s of congressional meetings and speeches by house leaders is truly on a great track! I think we have a lot to learn as to how we translate our raw passion into great results...but thats what i am in it for...a great journey with IV.

lets keep going. lets point to the 2k people who turned up and ask those who are skeptic to get in and be part of the movement.

pok from nc.
