Thank You!

Dear Colleague:

This is a letter of thanks for donations in response to a recent request for a tax exempt donation in support of three programs of vital importance!

We usually place content first and only later think about marketing. Fortunately we began with more than 5,000 active email addresses and have used “Substack” to send messages to that database.  Our current total is 4,589 active addresses.

We will now open a Facebook marketing account by depositing your donation to alert the greater universe of internet viewers about the following three programs:

1. Webcasts on the theme “Loss of Country” that examine how countries can be “lost.” We established our own channel at YouTube and will now conduct a Zoom interview about the loss of France with Dr. Jack Tierney. France was mortally injured by World War I and was conquered by totalitarian Nazi Germany in World War II.  We recently celebrated the anniversary of “D Day” and mourned the losses of brave young men in that battle and many thousands more as Allied forces slowly battled through the French countryside. But France was injured and Dr. Jack Tierney will examine those wounds that are felt even today.

2. We conducted a Zoom discussion that examined why and how the character of America has been changed by well-intentioned “statesmen” from 1885 through WW I.  We titled it  “Civil Unrest and the Administrative State” and disseminated a “podcast” of that event. Participating were two distinguished conservative scholars Dr. Angelo Codevilla and Dr. Christopher Manion

3. We’ve introduced another theme that examines narrative fiction as a means of relating fiction to conditions in civil society.  

Here is how  I described the rationale for this series:

As the United States undergoes transition from one President who advocated the American national interest to a successor who emphasizes global responsibility, we can look to fiction—novels—for leaders, “heroes” even, that are invisible in American politics. We need “heroes”–even imagined Epic Heroes.

You can read more at this link to “Writing and the National Interests”    

Once that theme was established, we posted a “podcast” under the title “Novels by Political Conservatives.”

All this is impressive because none of the participants in these events receive compensation, not even our graphic designer.

But now we must focus marketing these programs at Facebook.  

We’d like to budget our Facebook marketing at $1,000 and of that amount we have donations of $350.

You can help us “make budget” by making a tax exempt donation: Please go to http://www.academydl.com/donate

Thanks very much for considering this request!
