LD4all 2009 fundraiser

Support LD4all!
Hello everyone,

I have always wanted LD4all to be a non-profit site. However, it does cost money to keep up and running. Domain name registration, internet account, hosting, and so on. Some of the costs are covered by the ads and by buying in the LD4all store. But this is not enough to cover everything.

Hosting costs
The costs for hosting are $1188 a year. Next to that, I also have remote backup space, this is $60 a year. So the total of the hosting is $ 1248 for a year.

I pay the cost monthly, so this comes down to $104 a month.

Grateful am I
I call upon your generosity smile Every gift is welcome
I ask everyone who is able to, to help me in covering for the hosting costs.

If we reach $ 1248, this will have covered the hostingcost until january 2010.

As always, I'm very thankful for your donations :D flower cookiemonster

How to donate?
Paypal
please go here (click this) to donate smile
While every gift is greatly appreciated, i need to point out that paypal takes a fee of 35 eurocents (about $ 0.40) plus 3.4 % of the donated amount. So if you donate $1 it takes almost half of it. I have always covered for those fees myself but it is good to keep in mind. That's why I prefer it if you could send it directly to my bank account if possible, because then nothing is taken off.
please mention your forum username so I know who it is from smile

Direct money transfer (international):
If you're from the EU and your currency is the Euro, you can also transfer money (without paying a fee) directly to my bank account. You will need the following information:
    IBAN: NL22 INGB 0005954454 (International Bank Account Number)
    BIC / SWIFT : INGBNL2A (Bank Identifyer Code)
    to: P.J.M. Krul
    adress: Amsterdam
    please include 'LD4all donation' and your forum username
    Please let me know (by PM or email) when you have sent something to my bank account so I know who it is from


Direct money transfer for the Dutch:
If you are from Holland, you can transfer it directly to my girorekening: 5954454 tnv p.j.m. krul te Amsterdam smile
please include 'LD4all donatie' and your forum username

Why don't you put some non intrusive ads up? It's certainly much more reliable than relying on the generosity of others.

Why are you paying so much for hosting!!!
PostPosted: Sun 22 Feb, 2009  Reply with quote

I was just Googling around for info on foods to improve dream recall and lucidity and found your site. I noticed your request for donations to cover your hosting expenses and was shocked to see how much you are paying out of pocket.

I provide hosting for much less and often free for good people doing good work. Rather than donate cash, I can donate space and bandwidth unless you have extraordinary needs.

Feel free to email or contact me through: <mod>url removed due to spam rules</mod>

Thanks
Justin

Hi Justin,
thanks for your offer colgate I looked at your site. I don't know what you would consider extraordinary needs, but what I do know is that LD4all has grown out of shared hosting some years ago. It needs quite a lot of bandwidth.

Can you let me know how much space and bandwidth you need on a monthly basis and I'll see what I can do. Can you give me the details of your current hosting package so I can compare?

Justin

Hi Justin.

LD4all has it's own server. The needs of LD4all extend to even the largest hosting package out there - not believing the "unmetered bandwidth" ones.
I also value my independence, the way things are now. So I decline your kind offer - even if you could provide the bandwidth, etc, needed, it would mean that I am not independent anymore.

I got a donation on my bank account, but it only mentioned numbers and transaction ID's, so I don't know who it is from. Or for that matter, if it even is a donation but I treat it like one grin So, if you donated to my bank account, could you please let me know, either by email/pm or here?

I wish I could donate but I'm too young for a job, and my parents will just stare at me (and maybe laugh...) if I tell them to.

Haha I just got a bank card, a hundred dollars, and pretty soon, I'm getting a job. I'm making my resume tomorrow, actually.

Hurray!

I might be the next sponsor
But I WILL donate!
