My websites cost me a lot of money to run. And up until now, I’ve been able to foot the cost with little trouble. However, now that my situation has changed, this is no longer easily doable.
Part of the problem is that I have everything set up through a very expensive host. I’ve been with this host for going on twelve years, and while I am happy with their services, I must take my business - and sites - elsewhere. Because of the nature of my current host, I am unable to directly transfer my files and thus am being forced to recreate every single site almost from scratch. There is a lot of work and time involved - time which I don’t have a whole lot of anymore.
So here’s the situation, the bottom line. My new host will be much cheaper, and thus will be much more affordable in the foreseeable future. But, I am unable to get everything transferred over to the new host before I am billed again on my current host. My new host AND my current host are both billing me in August.
In total, I will need $540 by August 5th in order to be able to pay for the sites
, which will give myself another six months before the old host bills again - which should be enough time to get the sites transferred over to the new host.
However, I only have $150 of my own cash that I can allocate for the sites at this time.
That is why I am turning to you. I beseech your help. I don’t like asking people for money, but this comes from a plea of desperation. I don’t want the sites to have to close. So if you could spare a little bit of pocket change as a donation towards helping the sites remain open, I would be eternally grateful for your generousity. I know times are tough and that things are tight for everyone right now, so I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart if you can help.
Every donation counts, whether it’s $1, or $5, $10, $15, and so forth, and every cent is going directly to helping pay for the sites. There are two ways you can donate. You can donate directly to me via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can snail mail cash (US dollars).
If you wish to snail mail, please contact me directly at email@example.com
and I will provide more info.
As an incentive, I am offering the following:
