We Need Help But We Have a Gift For Our Helpers

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here.
There's a running joke in ApX: I'll be eating or doing paperwork, and band members will dump a bunch of crumpled receipts that need reimbursed into the middle of whatever I'm doing and say, "Is now a bad time?"
I feel like that's what I'm doing now: dumping on you. But it's not a joke. Sure, it's a bad time for us, or I wouldn't be writing this. But it's probably a bad time for you, too. Valentine's Day is tomorrow.
However, I have a bunch of bills that need paid (for the band and my family), and ApX is still six months behind on my paychecks. But I'm only appealing to fans who are able to help and feel led to do so.
I do come bearing gifts this time. While supplies last, we're sending an ApologetiX lapel pin to fans who make a donation of $25 or more. You can see what they look like at http://apologetix.com/store/store.php.
These custom lapel pins are 1.5" long and made of die-cast metal and hard enamel. They were designed and manufactured for us as a gift by ApX fans Doc and Reba Nigh to use as fundraisers for our ministry.
Although we're short on funds right now, we're not short on ideas. That's one of the things God always seems to do during these times — provide new songs to encourage us to keep going.
Current works in progress discuss First John, gnosticism, Leviticus, Noah, New Age, Luke 17:7-10, the roles of Jesus vs. Satan, spiritual sluggishness, Jesus' answers to dumb questions, and more.
If you want to help us in this ministry, any of these will help:
1. Pray (if that's all you can do, that's still a LOT!)
2. Get our CDs, DVDs, USBs, singles, etc. at apologetix.com/store
3. Give online: http://www.apologetix.com/store/store-donate.php
4. Give by mail: ApologetiX, 208 Charlemma Dr., Pittsburgh PA 15214
Donations aren't tax deductible but their effect is unbelievable. Thank you!
