    Here is an idea. Go to the main page. See the donation button at the top of the page? The NAWCC has a modest goal each month of 300 dollars. Let's blow this one up this month. Donate 10 or 25 or 50 bucks today or tomorrow. Every little bit helps right?

    If you have ever learned a thing on this forum, or used it for research or fun or for laughs or whatever, donate something. Tax deductible too!

    You can set up an auto payment too. Which is quite easy to do.

    None of mine have showed up yet but they get it, and every little bit helps, like Jeff said. The message board is a valuable tool, and full of great knowledgeable people

    Donating to NAWCC is throwing good money after bad (in my opinion)
    They lost the plot, at same rate as they are loosing members.
    Would any "horologist" still employed by NAWCC care to stand up and take a bow here?

    Posts like this really don’t inspire anyone to be a part of this organization. Adam, you owe an apology to the NAWCC and all of its members. Just saying. Peter

    Yet the NAWCC and it's members pay for the facility you are using to bad mouth them. Perhaps you need to look into a mirror to find who has actually lost the plot Sir.

    I doubled my donation after reading Adam's worthless comment.

    Excellent - it shows my post was not a waste of time.
    We are all entitled to opinions and actions.
    I am happy to meet your contribution to a "deserved" charity of my choice - thats unfortunately not the nawcc

    I enjoy being a member of an organization that does so well in supporting and helping people restore and preserve all items of horological significance. I am also pleased with the way way the message board allows everyone to express their opinions about all subjects including the politics of such. This the very reason I am donating toward the board. Thanks NAWCC!

    Well, Jeff had a great idea, but there's a problem. The donation bar and tracking is broken. Those of you who donated - THANK YOU! Anyway, don't stop donating just because the bar is broken! Let's still click that button!

    Adam, I am a horologist not in.the employ of the NAWCC. I am a member of many years who is keeping connected with folks interested in the same thing I am. "They lost the plot, at the same rate as they are loosing members." I don't know what you mean by that. I know you have made great contributions to.the club but, could you please not post grievances here? -Cort

    Sheesh. Not sure how this got changed into a P*ssing contest, but anyway, keep donating. As my orignal post said, any of us who have learned a thing or two or enjoyed reading the comments or are just a fan of horology, keep donating. I have been assured the even though a glitch shows the bar not working, your donations are being counted. I also doubled my contribution today. Not for any other reason other than my enjoyment of the nawcc.
