Ascovime Plans for the Future

Hi all! It’s been a while since this site has been updated but I hope to keep the blog posts coming in a much more regular fashion from now on. There are some exciting things happening with the project that I wanted to share.

First, Dr. Bwelle has created a fantastic slideshow detailing where he wants to take Ascovime in the future and what the project needs to make it there so take a look and let us know what you think! There are some very ambitious ideas for what we can do and it’s exciting to see the direction this organization is moving in.

Currently we are working on getting Ascovime USA officially registered as a 501(c)3 (an American tax-exempt nonprofit organization) and will let everyone know when that has gone through.

Also, we are working on getting more information out in the media about Ascovime so if you know anyone that would be interested in doing a piece about us don’t be shy,send us a message, we’d love to work with you!

Finally, and most importantly, what keeps us running are our wonderful contributors. We will be creating a fundraising letter template that you can share with your friends and family that will have all the details on how to donate to Ascovime (any gift will be tax-deductible too!). We rely on your help and are so grateful for your continued support so thank you!!

However, as a cheap and relatively easy way to reach a large amount of people I decided to do it anyway.

Perhaps I thought it would be successful and unannoying to the vehicles’ owners because it’s THAT good of a cause. The idea came from my old man this past Friday, “Did you know the Essex Alliance Church is having Easter at the Patrick Gym?”
