    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi Karen,

    In just three short months, thousands of causes just like Whittemore
    Peterson Institute
    have, all together, earned tens of thousands of dollars from
    our special challenges. The most earned by a cause was over $1,000. We're
    tremendously pleased that these Challenges work and we're excited that
    supporters like you are making it happen. So pleased that we've put together
    another 24 hour / $5,000 challenge.

    According to the Nonprofit Finance Fund's recent survey:

    * Nearly 90% of nonprofits surveyed expect 2010 to be as difficult or more
    difficult than 2009.
    * 80% anticipate increased demand for services in 2010.
    * Only 18% of organizations expect to end 2010 above break-even.
    * The majority - 61% - have less than three months of cash available; 12%
    have none.

    Together, you and iGive.com can make times a little less tough for
    Whittemore Peterson Institute.

    We'll donate our marketing budget, you spread the word, and Whittemore
    Peterson Institute gets the money. It's that simple.

    We'll give Whittemore Peterson Institute a dollar for each person who
    joins iGive using the special link below and visits one store via iGive between
    noon Wednesday, March 24, 2010 (Chicago time) and noon Thursday, the next
    day.

    Here's where you come in. Send your friends, family, and colleagues the
    following link in an e-mail, tweet it, do a Facebook posting, put up
    posters, shout from mountain tops (you know the drill) and let them know you think
    Whittemore Peterson Institute is pretty cool and deserves their support,
    especially since it's free! You can even just forward this e-mail. The
    only way Whittemore Peterson Institute will get new supporters and that free
    $1 (or more) is if you invite them.

    This is the link:
    http://www.igive.com/welcome/warm_reg_promo.cfm?m=706712


    Make sure you tell your friends to perform a store visit, so that they earn
    the dollar.

    5,000 new members, $5,000. No purchase necessary. That's 5,000 new
    members for all causes, not just yours, and it's only for 24 hours, so it's a bit
    of race.

    It can turn into more than a dollar, much more ... if these new members
    search or buy something at an iGive store they'll earn much-needed money for
    Whittemore Peterson Institute. Right now, we're donating a special bonus
    of $5 for that first purchase plus the usual percentage.
    Active iGive
    members raise an average of over $40 per year for their cause.

    The details:

    - Offer active between 12:00 p.m. (noon) March 24, 2010 and 11:59 a.m.,
    March 25, 2010 (Chicago time).
    - New members only (never have been an iGive member previously).
    - All the normal rules of membership, searching, and purchasing apply, our
    site has the details.
    - Once we've given away $5,000 in total, the offer ends.
    - The special link and visiting a store via iGive are necessary. No link,
    no store visit, no $1.

    That's it. We've added tons of new stuff in the last months that we want
    to really test out, so spreading the word helps both Whittemore Peterson
    Institute and iGive. Check it out yourself at http://www.iGive.com . You may
    need to login first.

    Yours,

    Robert N. Grosshandler
    Founder
