  7. <h1>FSFE introducing "Supporters" and two small tasks for you</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">
  9. It's now possible to become a public <a href="http://fsfe.org/support">supporter of FSFE</a>.
  10. This allows you to easily show that you
  11. care about Free Software and support the FSFE's activities.
  12. </p>
  13. <h2>Why?</h2>
  14. <p>a) FSFE needs a better way to measure how many people care about Free
  15. Software issues, and b) FSFE wants to be able to demonstrate how many
  16. people support our mission. Other organisations do this with by using
  17. Facebook "friends", and Twitter "followers", but FSFE does not wish to
  18. force anyone to register for an external service to show that they
  19. care about <strong>our mission</strong>.
  20. </p>
  21. <h2>What does it mean?</h2>
  22. <p>
  23. Becoming a Supporter does not cost anything, and Supporter names and
  24. e-mail addresses will not be released. Only the total number of
  25. supporters will be published. Supporters may receive occasional
  26. important information from us, at most three times a year. As before,
  27. they can subscribe to
  28. <a href="https://fsfe.org/news/newsletter.html">our newsletter</a>,
  29. discuss ideas on FSFE's public mailing lists,
  30. make a <a href= "http://fsfe.org/donate"> one-time donation </a>, and
  31. <a href="http://fsfe.org/join">join the Fellowship </a>.
  32. </p>
  33. <h3>Two things you can do to help FSFE in less than 10 minutes:</h3>
  34. <p>
  35. <strong>1.</strong> <a href="http://fsfe.org/support">Become a supporter!</a> <br />
  36. <strong>2.</strong> Ask your friends and colleagues -- by e-mail, social networks, or in
  37. person -- if they also want to become a supporter. You can e.g. use an
  38. URL like <strong>"http://fsfe.org/support/?YourFellowshipLoginName"</strong> for this.
  39. This way you can see who you've encouraged to subscribe
  40. at <strong>"https://fsfe.org/support/stats?ref_id=YourFellowshipLoginName"</strong>. You can
  41. see the <a href="https://fsfe.org/support/stats">progress of supporter numbers</a>.
