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.
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 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

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.
