Paypal Donations
#1
As many of you know, I'm retired and living on SocSec.  There have been a few times in the past where paying the hosting fee has become anxious for me because ... well, sometimes money is just plain tight.

When I sent the email regarding the status of CSS and then posted it on the forum the response from several people was "Put a PayPal Donate button on the web site."  Now that's a good idea but easier said than done.  What I have done is to put a donate button on the CSS home page

If anyone is feeling particularly generous and can afford to send a few pfennigs / pennies / farthings / bitcoins my way, believe me I'd be eternally grateful.

My heartfelt appreciation to those who have donated. If you don't mind your name appearing, shoot me a note and I'll put an "appreciation list" up here.

No and I've looked for something I can either fit into the forum or put on the landing page. One I found for the landing page looks good but it wants an IFrame and I can't put one where I want it.

To update this, I've received two donations totaling US$30.00 and i"m still trying to figure out who the user is that's not associated with the email of the donation.....

Funny thing that - I just received another $20.00 donation in my PayPal today. Once again though, the email addy associated with them isn't the email they used to register with the forum - or at least I assume they're registered here since I have no idea who they are.

That's a neat surprise Smile 

So how much total have you gotten this year? Like, what's the difference that still has to be paid? Have you paid the bill for the forum yet?

A Recap ...
MRJ - $20.00 01/25/17
DL - $10.00 04/05/16
BB - $20.00 04/07/16
-------------------------
That takes us back to when NS paid the bill for last year. So, Lurker to answer your question, I've received about $50.00 (less PayPal's 4%) and that leaves about $100 to pay the bills in April for this year. I'll pay them, that's not a problem - really? - but it sure helps if someone else will stick a couple of dollars in the account.
Billing actually runs $9.98 a month + tax, with domain name registration running another $20 so NightSongs $155 is reasonably close.

Out of the $50 I've received in donations, I just paid out $155.88 for another year of hosting for CSS ...
If you're so inclined, the paypal donation button is on the ChronicSuicideSupport.com home page.

Two month ago I had to pay out $800 for batteries for my solar system, hopefully that will be the last time I need to do that for 5+ years, but still ...; somewhere in the next month or so I have to shell out another $600 for tires for the Jeep - and I have to have transportation - it's 1/2 hour to the nearest "store". Regrettably I do live from check to check, if I'm lucky I can transfer a few dollars from checking to savings - but for the batteries, it went the other way so my "savings" is low again.

NUff said, it's bad enough, I don't need to make anyone else feel worse ....
