An Appeal in Behalf of the American Chesterton Society

I thought I'd pass along this note that Dale sent earlier today...

"The one perfectly divine thing, the one glimpse of God's paradise given on earth, is to fight a losing battle - and not lose it." G.K. Chesterton, Time's Abstract and Brief Chronicle

Dear Friend of the American Chesterton Society,

I am contacting you today because we need your help. The American Chesterton Society needs to raise $20,000 in the next few weeks. You are well aware that we are a unique organization: part literary, part religious, part scholarly, part evangelistic, part social action, and one-hundred percent dedicated to providing G.K. Chesterton's common sense for the world's uncommon nonsense.

But because of our uniqueness we tend to fall between the cracks when it comes to charitable giving. We don't fit any clear category and so we are too often overlooked. Stilll, we have had faithful supporters who understand and appreciate the work we do. But our usual donations are way down, and we are facing some major expenses.

Please help us today with a gift of $25 or $50 or $100 or more. You can donate right now online at:

Or you can mail a donation to the address below. Your donation is tax-deductible, your assistance is invaluable. Thank you so very much. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime.

Your servant,

Dale Ahlquist, President, American Chesterton Society
