Getting a lifetime membership is a great way to stick a permanent stake in the ground that says you are committed to this cause for life. By joining, you grow the numbers, and growing numbers means more people join. That means more people pay attention, discussion circulates, more word of mouth spreads etc. The money is used for outreach, community building, and most excitingly is that it is used to fund research projects.
As Reason at the Fight Aging blog says,
"The present fundraising initiative at [Longecity] is another in their series of small research projects that can, despite their modest price tag, contribute to progress in longevity and aging science"
"This is the essence of our present era of biotechnology: a task that would have occupied a whole laboratory and its equipment in the 1980s, and cost a great deal of money if it was even possible at all, is now something that a skilled graduate-level life scientist can organize and run himself within an established lab."
I bought a lifetime membership about 4 years ago and it is one of the best things that I ever did. It is one of the most satisfying things I have ever done.
It comes with a price though, that is right, the price is steep. By not joining as a lifetime member you pay the price of having to look back in the future wishing that you had.
Get them while they're hot.
If you want then I could talk it over with the board and probably even put you together a lifetime membership certificate.
