BBI Fund Drive - LAST WEEK

Eric from BBI : Admin : 8/20/2018 8:48 am
Each year, it seems the same people are the ones who help to keep the site going. If you haven't done so yet, please consider helping to support BBI.

As a small business, we rely on contributions from readers to supplement our advertising revenue.

Any amount you can donate would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your support!!!!

I just put the flag up on the mailbox with an enclosed check. BBI is a multi-time stop for me on a daily basis. While I don't post much or that often, the information on day to day "NEW YORK GIANTS" is just Gold to me. Many thanks to you and the crew!! Here's to a better 2018!

thanks for all the hard work Eric and everyone who keeps the site going!
I really urge people who have not contributed before,  
DonQuixote : 8/20/2018 12:42 pm : link
to contribute.

In my experience, when you commit to contributing to something like this, or a charity say, once you start it becomes a regular thing.

So please take the time to contribute for the first time!
Touched by the hand of PayPal...

you should do the donation campaign at the end of the year. I get my bonus then, and I go on vacation in August, so I spend a lot of money right around now. So I rather give like end of december. Or at least two two contribution campaigns.
One way to look at it:  
Giantophile : 8/21/2018 11:24 am : link
Imagine you click and one day the site was gone. How much would you pay right then to have it come back? I'd wager the answer is above $0 for nearly everyone.

just out of curiousity? if i, or anyone else for that matter, attempted to make a BBI donation using that PP link later in the year for example... after the September donation period, what would happen? might it still go thru? or does it get kicked back with a "nananana poo poo, stick your head in doo doo"?

I haven't looked into it. With only a few hundreds people donating, I'd prefer to keep the options a bit simple.

I've considered more than one campaign but I think folks would get fatigued by that and I know I prefer to have a limited period each year and move on... sort of like the old Jerry Lewis telethons.

Eric I agree with this Cmicks here. I just sent a donation via PayPal, wanted to send a check but I am on vacation at the moment, I would love to donate again in the winter I think a lot of folks wouldnít mind donating twice a year.

I joined at the very end of year 1 or beginning of year #2, something like that. I think my profile says 2001 but that may be when Eric updated the forum.

Anyhow, I made a contribution cause BBI has been good to me. I wish I could do more.
Done. Thanks for the great coverage and community.

Just a theory...  
manh george : 8/24/2018 2:52 pm : link
but think some people contribute in proportion to how much they are enjoying the team. Last year was no fun at all.

People: this year is going to be a lot more fun, including on BBI, so please consider contributing or adding to your contribution.

Gross Blau Oberst : 9/2/2018 10:47 am : link
I have been with BBI since it's inception. I have used multiple handles as I moved from place to place and still have BBI ball cap with a former BBI handle embroidered on the backside (Ebbs in PWC).

I am truly addicted to the sight and visit daily. My wife laughs at me about this addiction..

Eric, thank you for your commitment to keeping this site running.
as always eric, you are an amazing plus for the internet and  
plato : 9/2/2018 5:59 pm : link
what you have created is amazing. Plus you and your site are the FIX for addicted Giants fans young (sometimes very young) and OLD. Thanks so much for what you have done.

Although I don't agree with many posters here, it is great forum for getting across your points And a fine spot for new news. Can't do without it. Hope you guys feel the same.
Just donated as usuall.

But I have to admit, after 22 years on BBI, this 0 and 2 start is grating on me. Flashbacks to the late 60s and all the 70s that I recall.
