The reason we do not set a price is because if we did it would be a price and not a donation.  Some can afford more and others can afford nothing.  It is not for us to make that decision.  We send the information out and if you want to donate, we say thank you but many cannot afford it and are deprived of lawful information.  Most donate at least enough to cover postage and materials and others donate to cover the ones that are not as fortunate.

 

Thanks to TRCP 52 ALLEGING A CORPORATION, you are a corporation, however created, unless denied by the affidavit!

Dr. Pepper Co. v. Crow, 621 S.W.2d 464,465 (Tex App.-Waco 1981, no writ). "Plaintiff plead defendant was a corporation. Defendant did not deny by verified pleading pursuant to [TRCP] 52 and 93 ... that it was not a corporation; thus, such fact was established."
