Dear Friend

As a visitor to Wonderland in the past, you are truly among our most treasured friends. It is the enthusiasm for whimsy such as yours that spurs us to continue to provide the perplexing chaos for which we are so widely esteemed, the better to introduce the young (and the no longer young) to the myriad joys of nonsense.

As we review our budget and look forward to the coming year, I would like to invite you to become an important part of the Wonderland experience. “Friends of Wonderland” is a new program designed to give supporters more intimate access to the unseen life of our little world. “Friends” will receive advance notice of special events and access to benefits heretofore available to few outside the royal family. Haven’t you always longed to stroll through the White Rabbit’s house at leisure or to try your hand at peppering the soup? You can have your own “backstage pass” to the ongoing productions all over Wonderland that best suit your own interests...

I may be tempted to donate at the Queen level if there is a chance of a raven and a writing desk thrown in to the deal.....

What!? Nothing for boojum hunters?

And have them vanish along with their prey (and presumably, any donations)?

In the midst of the word he was trying to say,
In the midst of his laughter and glee,
He had softly and suddenly vanished away---
For the Snark *was* a Boojum, you see.
