Donating to this site

Just wanted to challenge everyone to donate to this site. I know what it costs even for a small site, let alone the time put into it. This site has helped me find MANY mushrooms, in round about ways. If you cant give, dont. But if you can, and you check this site as often as I do....DONT BE A CHEAPSKATE!!!!

No one asked me to write this.

Could not agree more! If folks are not aware paypal and credit/debit cards are accepted and donations are not set in increments. You can donate as little as a dollar or set any $$ amount you would like to contribute. Frank and Debbie do a fabulous job maintaining the site and are a wealth of information. If your not comfortable donating on-line send Frank or Debbie a private message to get a mailing address.

Thanks for starting this thread as a reminder.

Re: Donating to this site

Thank you for the boost MorelBelle & Tobin,
but I wouldn't describe non-contributing members as cheapskates. A lot of them are in the same boat as Debbie & I. We just can't afford much.
I understand what you were trying to say though to some who can afford it. But they are all our friends.

I do appreciate any and all donations.
Without what we "do" get, I would never be able to continue the site. So thank you all for your support.

morelman, I don't know why it wouldn't work. It's the same as a regular visa, other than it is preloaded and not a charge card.


Some of the best people are found right here. - You!

Re: Donating to this site

Like I said "If you cant give dont", but there are people who can, AND DONT. Im sure there are people who cant afford it that give. Its always a balance!

You know who you are.

I can afford it so I do.

Thank you for putting it on Frank and Debbie!

Re: Donating to this site

I have always said, with the amount of members that this site has, if every one of them just donated $1, Frank and Debbie would have no worries about how the bill would be paid each year. Granted, there are those that are on a fixed budget, and I truly understand because I've been there.

But we have members here that can, but don't, donate, for whatever reason.

So, I'm with tobinj92878. I challenge you to donate to this site. Help Frank and Debbie with the cost to keep us online. Especially this year, with the passing of Debbie's mom, things will be hard for them financially and they fund this out of love, from their own checkbook.

The link at the top of the main Forum page says that only 25 people have donated this year...I KNOW that more than 25 people are regulars here!

Click on that what you can...I just did...GO!! YOU'RE IT!!

Blessed beyond measure!
