    Default Donate To Keep The Site Ad Free - Donation Button Above Threads

    For some years now I’ve been able to maintain the site without asking for contributions because most of the costs were minimal. My son, due to the nature of his business, was able to host the site and maintain the server free of charge. The other costs were, for the most part, nominal and I have been absorbing them in order to keep the site here for all of us.
    Unfortunately my son’s work situation has changed and I now have to pay for the server storage and maintenance as well as hosting, hardware, and software.
    (So far the labor has been free)

    As much as I would like to maintain a Free Dark Tower site the costs have escalated to a point where I cannot shoulder the entire burden on my own and still keep the site operating as it has been.
    I have other options – I can inundate the site with ads and pop ups which would generate significant revenue to keep the site going. I could also ask for either monthly or annual membership fees. To me both options would be last resorts. I would rather see members show their appreciation by contributing what they can, when they can, and as a group keep the site ad free.

    Lot's of help and concern, I see here. C'mon folks, a few dollars to help keep the site independent? Always the "fundraiser" I just can't resist a good cause and this seem like one for sure!!!

    Even Wiki needs donations to keep the site "Ad" free.

    Dear William,

    Thank you for your invaluable gift of bringing knowledge to every human around the world.

    My name is Lila Tretikov, and I’m the Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation. Over the past year, gifts like yours powered our efforts to expand the encyclopedia in 287 languages and to make it more accessible all over the world. We strive most to impact those who would not have access to education otherwise. We bring knowledge to people like Akshaya Iyengar from Solapur, India. Growing up in this small textile manufacturing town, she used Wikipedia as her primary learning source. For students in these areas, where books are scarce but mobile Internet access exists, Wikipedia is instrumental. Akshaya went on to graduate from college in India and now works as a software engineer in the United States. She credits Wikipedia with powering half of her knowledge.

    This story is not unique. Our mission is lofty and presents great challenges. Most people who use Wikipedia are surprised to hear it is run by a non-profit organization and funded by your donations. Each year, just enough people donate to keep the sum of all human knowledge available for everyone. Thank you for making this mission possible.

    On behalf of half a billion people who read Wikipedia, thousands of volunteer editors, and staff at the Foundation, I thank you for keeping Wikipedia online and ad-free this year.

    Thank you,
    Lila

    Every little bit helps. Don't go and see a movie you were planning on attending and donate here. This site is a valuable resource and a great place to visit. Please help out if you can!!!

    Update.
    We are at $1,805.
    I'm optimistic that we will hit the goal of $2,400.

    Pretty decent total so far. I'm betting the goal will be exceeded.
