For the most part, here at Re:Vision we'll take your time over your cash. Volunteers are worth their weight in gold, and gold tends to get stolen. However, when it comes down to it, we also need money to cover our expenses. We have a lot we want to accomplish:
- Training people to argue for reform
- Distributing literature and arguments around the country
- Research on how drug use impacts young people
- Building contacts in the media so we can put across the arguments for reform
- Build an informative and useful campaigning website
We need funds for things like materials and banners.
But for all of this, we need money, to pay for travel, materials, phone bills etc. Running a national network powered by volunteers who give generously of their time and skills means we don't need a lot of it in comparison to other groups, but we have dreams that are bigger than our current donors' wallets. At the moment we operate on a shoestring budget of just over a thousand pounds a year. To do everything we want to, we need cash! Please give generously.
- £2.10 will pay for seven Re:Vision badges.
- £5 will pay for our stationary supplies for a month so we can send out packages to our local groups, conduct surveys on drug use, and file our paperwork.
- £10 will pay the train ticket for a local speaker to talk about our work.
- £30 will pay for our banner material for four months so we can hold public protests around the country.
- £67 will pay for our website hosting for a year.
- £74.20 will pay for a volunteer to go to London for the day to lobby Parliament and other politicians.
- £130 will pay for 10,000 leaflets to spread the message of drug law reform.
- £250 will pay for our public liability insurance so our volunteers are taken care of if they have an accident when they represent us.
- £500 will pay the rent of an office for a month in central Manchester where we can hold meetings and train our volunteers, and store our equipment.
