This from the newsletter caught my attention...

Dear Readers.

This newsletter started almost four years ago and is now hundred editions young. Two books do their best to help pay for this website, its forum and news letter. Now, if any of you did read those books, perhaps you could help by entering a review at Amazon.com. Both, Awakening To The Dream and From Self to Self could use your input.

Leo, I suspect you might not even like this idea, but can't there also be a way for us to make donations towards the financial maintenance of the board?

Okay, I'll admit I'm "sweet" Wink... and I don't want to be a pest either, but I'm completely sincere. Is there a way to set this up so we could make donations? C'mon Leo, won't you please let some of us help with this?

It never even entered my mind until reading these posts that it cost money to have a forum and a website...but then again...is anything ever free?

I would be interested in contributing a donation.

This forum is very nice. A strange and wonderful place where the ordinary way of seeing things is the unordinary!

no gokalliopeia.org/

a funding source for productive experiments like this forum,
perhaps we gather these "testimonials" may add up
an be considered as part of the application,
which it seems you might consider dear leo,
15000 posts and counting is nothing to sneeze at
~god bless you~
an annual member ship fee also seems fair,
reasonable and well worth the price,
how much we talkin' about here?
Smile Smile
love, and i'm in, if costs are prohibitive,
then we must share the costs for the space,
~and could someone turn the heat up!

all for one and one for all! Laughing

Ahh, I'm glad to see you other good folks chiming in Very Happy I've been posting here for 3 years, and Leo has always been VERY generous with us, making us all welcome here, freely sharing whatever he can offer, while not wanting anything monetary from us. I suspect he is really loathe to ask or accept help, but I think it's only right and fair that we should chip in if it's needed. I like the idea of donations better than member fees. As my local public TV station says, "check out what we offer, then if you like it, you can decide afterwards if you'd like to contribute." I think that would work here. I think membership fees upfront would turn some away. But donations miight work just fine. If Leo would just set something up, give us access to a handy little button we could click, that would make it real convenient for us.

So... Leo... what say you? Question

Dear Friends

I'm grateful for the response, and perhaps I'll figure out a way to put a donation link on the site.

For the moment I'm not sure if I will continue this for much longer and it wouldn't feel right to accept your (financial) support in this situation. (But if any of you wins the lottery, or is really very, very rich, well in that case... Laughing)

But again thank you.... and as even 'my' next thought is unknown until it pops up, let's see what's going to happen.

Gratitude loves it when allowed to be expressed. Donation toward this site, therefore all of you, Wink would be good for my gratitude.
And Leo, aaahhh, however you want it is fine.
