Sometimes I Despair

If everybody who benefited from our campaign against The West Brom was do donate just 10% of the £27,500,000 we recovered for them Property118 Action Group would have a fighting find today of over £2.75 million.

If each person who read my article last night had committed £10 a month we would be building a fighting fund at a rate of over £110,000 a month.

Most haven’t contributed a penny piece.

Sometimes I despair, but then I pick myself up and carry on regardless, albeit it without the necessary funding we could do so much more with.

Do landlords not care enough about their business to contribute just £10 a month to help us to build a fund to fight for the future of their business?

When government or local Councils introduce stealth taxes and when mortgages lenders play games with terminology to increase interest rates the vast majority just seem to roll over and pay up hundreds and sometimes thousands of pounds, often with little more than a moan and a groan.

Why is this?

Why don’t they fight back?

Why don’t they contribute?

Have we not proven ourselves?

To pledge just £10 a month to Property118 Action Group please

Hi Mark, I understand your frustration at the lack of support for Action Group membership (I've just joined) but I note that this heartfelt plea to join started with references to how much money could be raised. As you are trying to start a movement, may I suggest that you focus instead on numbers of people joining?

Perhaps a thermometer-style graphic showing the number of members would provide 'social proof' that it is something worth signing up for?

Best regards, Steve

Great idea Steve, thanks for that. I will ask our website Guru to see whether it is possible to create something dynamic to show realtime the number of lifetime members and monthly subscribers.
