You’re almost there!

We have 10 days and $2,750 left to meet our October fundraising goal – your fundraiser.

That’s right, it’s your site, your advocacy and your fundraiser. Every penny from this initiative is getting invested back into the site.

Here’s how to become an underwriter.

Elliott Advocacy is underwritten by Generali Global Assistance. Generali Global Assistance has been a leading provider of travel insurance and other assistance services for more than 25 years. We offer a full suite of innovative, vertically integrated travel insurance and emergency services. Generali Global Assistance is part of The Europ Assistance (EA) Group, who pioneered the travel assistance industry in 1963 and continues to be the leader in providing real-time assistance anywhere in the world, delivering on our motto – You Live, We Care.

For example:

✓ Did you know this site is the target of almost non stop denial-of-service attacks? That’s right, consumer advocacy has powerful enemies. People want to shut us down. So we have to pay for extra-strong servers to repel those hacks and attacks.

✓ We’re working on an amazing, brand-new forum and company contact database. Once it’s up and running, you’ll be able to find the name, address and email of any company executive quickly. Plus, you can share that information with the world. Now that’s a dangerous idea!

✓ We have a core group of volunteers who work with us to help answer your questions. But we also have to pay some of our people for services like coding, IT and research. I try to be as frugal with your donation dollars as possible, but not everything is free.

What’s in it for you?

This week is incredible! Tomorrow, I’m giving away Knee Defenders every hour to random underwriters. On Wednesday, I have Delsey luggage, copies of my latest book, and a Skyroll toiletry kit.
