HSLDA Extends Free Membership Opportunity and Opens E-lert Service to ALL

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

January 23, 2002


We know it's true. Our best advertisement is a personal
recommendation from you--our members. To say "thank you" for telling
your home schooling friends about us, Home School Legal Defense
Association will be continuing its Three-for-Free program through
December 31, 2002. This program allows current members to receive a
free year of membership when they refer three families who sign up as
new members with HSLDA.

As an added incentive, we are offering your friends a free book for
joining through this program.

If you encouraged one or two families to join last year but did not
reach a total of three referrals, you'll be glad to know that any of
your 2001 new members will count toward your 2002 total!

Your home schooling friends can join in one of two ways:

1. Our most convenient way to join is online at HSLDA's website, Our online application process is easy and
allows them to fill in your seven-digit membership number
({{Account_ID}}), giving you the credit for referring them, and them
the opportunity to receive "Why America Is Free."

*** Look for the quick, easy, cut-and-paste instructions we have
included below to send to your friends. ***

2. If your friends would prefer to apply via regular mail, they can
simply enclose a printout of this e-mail with their application.
Again, you will automatically receive the credit for having referred
them, and they will receive a free book.


As a service to the home school community, HSLDA is opening its e-
lert service to everyone. Initially conceived as the fastest and most
accurate way to communicate with our members when state or federal
legislation was threatening their home schooling freedoms, the HSLDA
E-lert Service has grown to include weekly updates of home schooling
news: from student achievement to links with major articles on home
education to new research studies.

Your friends can subscribe (it's totally free!) one of two ways:

1. Our most convenient way to subscribe online at HSLDA's website,

*** Look for the quick, easy, cut-and-paste instructions we have
included below to send to your friends. ***

2. Or your friends can simply send an e-mail to
with their e-mail address, full name, and complete mailing address.
