    Could we get a fundraising goal perhaps etc.? Might make it easier for people to know what to contribute or whether they should (acknowledging that of course they should, regardless).Report

    Any chance those of us who donate (or have donated) can also chime in on things we would like to see in the future?Report

    I updated the post. If you don’t have Paypal, clicking through on the donation button will give you the option (at the bottom) to use a credit card as well.Report

    Not that it bothers me any, but does paypal charge a fee for using their service?
    There was an article on Lifehacker recently that suggested paypal alternatives:

    Amazon WebPay

    Why You Should Ditch PayPal and Use These Other Services to Send People MoneyWebPay is like a free version of PayPal. It does the same thing (online payments with your email address) but doesn’t cost anything to send or receive money. You can also easily pay via text message on your mobile phone. You can fund your account via credit card or bank account—it’s still free either way. So what’s the catch? There isn’t one, really, other than you can only withdraw amounts higher than $10 (or $1 if you withdraw it to an Amazon gift certificate). Basically, it seems that Amazon is willing to forego charging you fees just to get you to use their service. That’s a pretty good deal—especially because you can actually pay with your account online on several retailers. Overall it’s an excellent alternative to PayPal.

    Just a minor suggestion 🙂Report
