Another Mensch for you: http://jvoices.com/2007/12/31/ringing-in-2008-with-a-symbolic-act/#comment-18258

Dear Jvoices Folks –

I just wanted to thank you for your “8 cents” gesture — it means so much to us Writers Guild members that community members have been supportive of our fight for a fair contract.

And it is particularly meaningful when our fellow writers support us. Your “8 cents” plan is the kind of thing that helps keep us going on the picket lines.

Thank you!
