Jump on in? Yeah to the fundraising. Those that enjoy the fun, those that need support, a place to ask questions, a place to vent, a place to make friends. Or just those that like to watch me fight with @Moni :LOL: ❤️. Whatever brings you here I think it is a great place. But it takes work and money to make this place possible. Lucky for us there are people that do the work so we can all benefit. I don't like seeing them paying for it for all of us too.

For many of the first months of this site the founder and others that help also paid the expenses. Now the rest of us should chip in. Even just a little. As I have said before I am having financial difficulties now and probably for the next year. So my donation is only $10 per month. That $10 does not change my life but this site and my friends here do change my life - for the better.

If you believe this place makes your life even a little better or more enjoyable kick in a little bit. Nobody here makes a profit. Everything goes into the site. Don't allow them to do the work and fully support it too. Let's all do our share. If 45 people kicked in $10 a month that would cover it so I hope you will join in.

Thanks
Kim

Kim, you must have a 6th sense as the management group were just discussing this. We are looking for other avenues of revenue to keep the site running without a continuing financial burden on the staff, but there isn't much around at the moment. We appreciate this is a financially demanding time of year for everybody, but that includes us! Thank you for your support Kim, you make our efforts worthwhile!!

Hugs,

Allie

Is that 10 Euro or 10 USD or 10 AUD? Just asking for those who are currency challenged! (don't look at me)

Sarah, you can just donate what you want in any currency in the dropdown menu. I donate in AUD and it seems to work. You are new to this forum so we wouldn't hope for you to contribute!

There is a friend of mine that we chat away all the way to 2am AEDT, I have to get up at 9am for the day's activities. So I'm use to it in same ways as I do get called to operations (Emergency Service - Volunteer duties) at any sort of time of day.

I don't mind helping out in the donation side of things, I recently did it for a group who wanted funds to get new flags for the NRL that I help do their banner for game days (similar to the AFL banners), so when I can I am happy to chip in, but please note: I can't swim or float but I can tread water to stay up. :)

@SJ_Linkey I chose an amount in US dollars (although I'm sure that selecting an amount in A$ would be fine) and then noticed that I saved a bit by paying in US dollars (after checking my online CC statement) rather than accepting the initial quote in Australian dollars that the payment site gave. My saving was a little over 5c per US$, although I suspect that this could vary, depending on the bank you use.

I have decided to appoint myself to an important office here at TR. Director of Donation Nagging. :LOL:

The sweet, wonderful, giving people that are on the staff of this great place do not want to be heavy handed, or rude or any other such thing by asking for donations. But I am none of those things. :LOL: Just ask my sister @Moni

So I will brazenly beg.

OK being semi serious. This is a great place or else you wouldn't be here right?

I make a very small donation of $10 per month. But I do it every month. If enough of us do it we will barely notice it out of our monthly expenses.
And those that can do more ---- thank you very much. I hope to join that group in 2022.

Please don't let the wonderful staff do the work AND pay for it too.
THANKS

If donations get high enough I may consider a cage match with Moni. :LOL:

Yes @KimOct I'd like to think that there's at least a couple of dozen of us who are substantially employed or receiving other significant income who can contribute at least $20 a month. That'd be in addition to those without substantive incomes who might be able to make smaller contributions. I'm also aware that there's some members who have no or very limited income, or are just getting to know us who naturally remain very welcome.

Hopefully with new members joining we can start significantly exceeding our current monthly target and introduce more services. @Katie are you able to share any hopes or plans for what we might be able to do with a more substantive regular income?

There is a social meeting platform I have been looking at, but it still needs mobile device compatibility development. Works and looks really cool on desktop and laptop.

And for those that are new or unaware - this is a non profit site. Nobody puts ANY money in their pocket. And the founders of this place entirely funded it for many months because they know it is important. All donations go to the cost of running the site and if there is enough to 'market' it on various platforms to make other people in the transgender community aware of this resource.

There are other sites 'not to mention any names' :oops: :LOL: in the trans community in which individuals make a profit. That is not the case here.

Nagging for January is complete. :rolleyes::LOL:

I'm still funding a large portion of it. We didn't meet budget the last couple of months. Ordinarily I wouldn't complain, but pretty soon here I will be getting the bills for my wife's cancer surgery and chemotherapy. I can't keep pumping money into this site while paying for that stuff.

To add to Katies comments, comming right from the hospital bed at the Mayo Clinic, we are actively looking into all possible ways to fund this forum. It was never our untention to have menbers paying for it. Once we were able to secure constant funding, we will not need donations anymore.

Thank you very much for helping us to help others.

Hugs
Linde

I would like to add, although any donation is greatly appreciated, regardless of whether or not you can donate to TR, you are all equally valued and appreciated members, and will always be welcome here.

Hugs!
