Quick update, as JP said on the other thread RELAUNCH IS IMMINENT!
Thank you to everyone that made a donation, so far we have enough funds to pay for 1 months web hosting. Hopefully once we are on the new server and everything is fast again we can get more finances flowing in.

It would be nice to mark our change over to the new server with a new relaunched logo. Does anyone want to have a crack at designing a new one? Even a rehash of the existing one with new photos would be great.

However we now have a monthly commitment to cover hosting costs of roughly US$50 a month. To help with this please donate money into our paypal account directly using this link https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c ... FJG6HZSVRY or login to your paypal account and send money to our email address veganfitness.net@gmail.com
To donate US$5 automatically each month follow this link -> https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c ... MTGEREXMEA.


FYI, FWI

$50.28 in U.S. Dollars is 30 pounds
$5 U.S. Dollars is 3.18 pounds
$7.86 U.S. Dollars is 5 pounds

handy dandy currency converter

Will the non-cyclical donation link work for US dollars/credit cards?

I think that question is best answered by Paypal, but I don't see why it would make any difference. Also, it's really a non-issue paying in other currencies than your own (unless of course we're talking huge transactions where currency fluctuations can make a big difference). I don't think I have ever used Paypal to transfer money in my own currency (Swedish krona), and I have never ever had any problems whatsoever (using both bank transfer to my Paypal account as well as a Swedish credit card).

But I guess it can feel a bit unusual if it's the first time, just do it is my recommendation 8)

Yeah you can use your US$ credit card to make donations using the link. The amount will be in £ and paypal will do the conversion.
If you are worried about doing that you can create a paypal account and send us money in any currency or amount you would like. Our paypal account is veganfitness.net@gmail.com

No takers on this? Chief Veganfitness.net designer is needed, it may come with perks!

how about a separate thread for the donations request to make it more visible?

I think a static link in the header would be more visible, perhaps with a mouseover message stating why it is needed. Perhaps with a link to a kickstarter page with a donation meter with what is needed for the year to help motivate people.

There are 2 donation links


My preference is to do a larger, nonrecurring donation. However, that link is hard coded for British addressing information. I tried donating through it and just kept getting error messages.

If a US donation link is made letting users specify the amount and recurrence/nonrecurrence I will use it.

That's strange, I just used the 1st link and changed my location/address to NZ and had no problems. Just try donating directly to veganfitness.net@gmail.com

Doesn't that require a paypayl account ( I don't want one )?

Best way to find out is probably to go to paypal's web page and find out.

You didn't read my post. I went to the paypal site and I tried the donation link. It didn't work for me being from the US.

We have received a couple of US donations, so not sure what error you are getting. Anyway this link is for US$
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c ... CVQTZGEFAW

I have also added a donate button on the top menu, we will tidy it up once we have a graphics person on board. Donations are in UK£ at the moment because that is where we have received the most donations from and its the easiest for us.
In the next couple of days I will start a dedicated donation thread with buttons for $, £ and € with option for single or reoccurring.

The paypal account is now paypal@veganfitness.net (the old one still works, but this one looks more pro). Please keep the donations coming in, we nearly have enough for 2 months hosting.

^Can this info needs to be someplace more prominent than a thread? Perhaps a permanent side bar?

I *finally* donated a tiny bit, but I can do more as the year goes on. I want to make it something regular...

Having NOT to look through a thread (and read, understand things, etc.) would really help, especially for the many intertube neophytes out there.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
