If even the tiniest bit would you consider making a donation? This is a non-profit website and all expenses are paid out of pocket by Mangled Heart and Deeply Scared.

They do not solicit donations but if interested click on the tiny red heart to the left of your screen, above the yellow box, titled "Donations". And your donation is tax deductible!

FYI: I am not a spokesperson for SI but this site has literally saved my life. I am thinking a lot of us feel the same.

Wishing peace for us ALL!

This site is great..the people on here are very awesome and wise. I am very grateful to have found this site.

I have donated and upgraded my account.

I would probably have given up during TT and broken NC if not for the advice here, and this place helps me keep my sanity about other off topic areas too. And I get a lot of laughs from F&G. AND I won the NFL pick 'em contest last year! Booh Ya!

SI absolutely saved my life.

Talk about a one stop shop for compassion, insight, and somewhere to go when you're just feeling lonely and need to talk to someone who understands.

I've had my hand held as I made good life decisions, and been gently guided away from some crappy ones all thanks to the opportunity to talk it out here.

Eternally. Grateful.

Thanks for the reminder, mo2.

you're always such a champion...thank you for everything

We are invoiced $536.00 a month just for the co-location of the servers and email accounts.

We've implemented various things we thought would help absorb some of the costs...SImplicity, the Amazon Deal of the Day, Google ads...but nothing really seems to be working. Donations are practically non-existent.

We just can't invest anymore of MH's time with upgrading the site when we're already so far in debt with SI...but thank you for always being there for us!!

I have been meaning to upgrade for a while now, so thanks to your reminder, I just did!

bumping again to keep on page one.

Absolutely. I will definitely give.

Thank you Spelljean!

It has helped a lot! Just upgraded to platinum.

You could find a much cheaper hosting solution...if you didn't care about reliability and privacy. We pay a similar amount per month, but host several profitable SaaS products on our server.

Thanks for all you do, MH, DS, and the entire staff.

I know that "ifs" and "somedays" aren't helpful, but I intend on donating once I go back to work in September. I just don't know how much I can actually afford to give.

Donated...I am now a platinum member!

Is it sad that I am somewhat excited about getting to 50 posts to check out the Investigative forum.....ah, the strange little things I look forward to these days!

I'm neutral. Some things have helped, some things have hurt me or held me back. I've been here awhile so I guess I "owe" the site owners money?

I'd prefer a subscription system rather than just a "tip jar" as it is now.

Laura28 posted 8/24/2013 00:08 AM

Bumped to encourage more people to donate.

wildbananas posted 8/24/2013 10:27 AM

I just threw some in the tip jar, too.

Wish it was more... thanks for all you do!

My FWH and I just had THE financial talk this morning. He was laid off as of the 15th, so we came up with our new budget, figured out how long we could stay at this level, and when we needed to have the going to the next level talk. And then I took a deep breathe and said, I know this isn't a good time for this, but I need to talk to you about making a donation to SI.

He didn't even hesitate. He said, do it. He has a small pot of money for non-essentials (we both do, and once those pots are gone, we will not be re-filling them until he gets hired), and he told me to take it out of there, if needed. He said, even though he had never been on the site, that through my participation, we were both getting a great benefit and it was only right to help support it.

So, there you go! Have I said today how proud I am of Mr. Skan?

confused615 posted 8/24/2013 14:46 PM

That's fantastic,Skan.

(((Skan and Mr Skan)))

Im donating Friday,DS...better get a bigger tip jar!

Laura28 posted 9/6/2013 02:40 AM

Bumping so people don't forget to help with the $$$$ needed to keep this site going.
