Just noticed that SC has posted that we are short of our May and June funding.

If you can spare anything please send it in.

I know that I am going to!

Thanks SC for giving us a safe place to work on our recovery issues!

Thanks. I realize that I have not given any money at all and I do have it and I am not poor. I feel badly that I have not given to a place that has truly been a blessing to me. I wonder why I have not done this. Do I just expect everyone else will chip in? I do this at work too, I don't give as much and I don't give as much to charities. I don't have a lot of money. I do not have an excuse why I do not give here. But I do appreciate it and I will dig up the address as it is tucked away somewhere. I know I have it. Thanks for this thread otherwise I would not have noticed that there is a need.

How does one support from outside the US?

Fantas,

I'm in Canada and I actually sent a US cash bill in the mail. I got a fresh, non-crinkled bill from the bank and slipped it inside a greeting card.

I did that twice and it got there OK both times. Normally I wouldn't send cash in the mail... but it is simplest and it worked all right.

You can also send a traveller's cheque. Click on the donation page and you will get info.

Yay, everybody send in a little and the site will carry on!

I would love to send money too. I don't like to go to the branch in my area tho. People are not so nice. But, if worse comes to worst...I will have to say a prayer, turn the other cheek and just do my best and hope to have a nice teller there when I go and get some cash and send it off. I've really been blessed by this wonderful site!!![[[aac]]]

Just thought I would bump this up...

I know that many of us are really hurting for money, but even coins hiding in your couch cushions makes a difference.

I'm not sure exactly how many of us there are on here, but a rough guestimate is that there's over 100.

It costs $45 a month or $540 a year to keep this site running.

Here is a quick chart to show what a difference you can make with just a little bit each year

We could cover the costs for an ENTIRE YEAR if we all came together and did one of the following scenarios...

100 of us donated $5.40 a year

54 of us donating $10 a year

45 of us donating $12 a year

30 of us donating $18 a year

20 of us donating $27 a year

15 of us donating $36 a year

10 of us donating $54 a year

5 of us donating $108 a year

Now to consider the same situation applied to cover the costs just a month at a time...

100 of us donating $0.45 a month

54 of us donating $0.83 a month

45 of us donating $1 a month

30 of us donating $1.50 a month

20 of us donating $2.25 a month

15 of us donating $3 a month

10 of us donating $4.50 a month

5 of us donating $9 a month

When I think of how much this site has changed my life, I am sad that I didn't donate earlier. I pay way more for bubble bath and hot chocolate then it would take to make a donation to keep this site going. Being able to connect with everyone here has had a more positive impact on my life than either of the above luxuries (although I am sure my coworkers appreicate the bath part 🙂 ).

I hope this helps everyone better see how even a small little bit can make a difference. Even $0.50 makes us $0.50 closer to our goal then we were without your support.

HI! I am relatively new this site and was unaware that it was funded by outside supporters. this site has helped me (and continues to do so) tremendously and I would like to contribute. Can someone please write down the necessary information regarding where to send the check and to whom it should be made out to. I am sure there are other newcomers who would like this info as well.

thanks, Sad

OK- what the heck is wrong with me?

I can't seem to find "the funding needed page"

Camer- where is it!

If I could find it, I would gladly send some money.

Thanks,

Isis

Hi Isis,

It is at the top of the page where it says "donations appreciated...funding needed" Click on that and it will take you to the donations "room" and will give instructions on how to donate.

Usually it shows the name of the last person that donated, but in this case, it states funding needed because obviously funds have gone below their limit.

I hope this helped.

Lolli

p.s. I sent mine in last week.

My cash will be in tomorrows mail.

Thanks cutie!

Have a great holiday,

Isis

Thanks Camer,

I sent my e-mail address as instructed and I am awaiting a reply. Thank you so much. I will definitely send a contribution as this site has been so helpful to me. I know I am not the only one who did not know that this site depends on private donations. SO we should keep up this thread.

Thanks again
Sad
