Donations - questions and discussion - July 2009

Post by jtaylor » Sat Jul 25, 2009 12:32 pm

I've just updated the Donations topic with the latest balance:- viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1051
It's been a year since I asked for any donations, and we've had a few bills since, and the main £200.33 annual hosting bill is due in August.

BALANCE TODAY:- -£160.56
(this INCLUDES the £200.33 invoice I've just received to be paid in August 2009)

A big thank you to everyone who's kindly donated - 24 members have donated so far, with amounts ranging between £5 and £100, and I'd like to thank everyone for their kind donations, on behalf of the Forum membership.
This topic is for discussion about the donations/running of the forum.

Cheers,

Julian

Julian... I sent you a donation via PayPal and am sorry about the deduction. Do you need any more to stay solvent in the months ahead? If so please let me know and I will send a cheque.
You are doing such a great job, and we all appreciate it. Especially now that you have a new job that looks pretty demanding! Congratulations on that.. but don't work too hard.
Unfortunately our University has moved away from RM, to Dell. All our computers have been replaced/upgraded over the last three months. We were told that the old ones were going to Africa for use in e.g. schools etc., but seeing the news at the weekend about the UK's propensity to use Africa as a dumping ground for electronic waste, falsely labelled as 'for charity', I am beginning to wonder...

I don'y know if this is still possible --- but as a Chairman of Governors, I persuaded the School to DONATE (Selling of "Electrics" is illegal) all replaced and updated computers to our local Mental Health NHS Trust (Of which I was a Member) these proved invaluable in teaching Confidence, Games, and "Finger skills". The hard discs were wiped prior to delivery, but they mostly contained sub-9 year old exercises anyway !


PS --- on another Thread --- on another Topic --- I have declared thet I HATE Paypal !!! :twisted:

Thanks Kerren - all received, and greatly appreciated.
Re. fees - don't worry - it's so easy to pay through Paypal for most people (with some obvious exceptions - see above!) that it's worth the fee really.
Work's been good - but pretty hard work and time-consuming. Enjoying it though.

Cheers,

Julian

Yes, well remembered. Have just received the invoice for the £200.33 for the web hosting. Will pull the accounts together, and publish a new figure of where we are, and will then be inviting donations again...

Thanks for remembering....glad someone's on the ball!

There's a new topic open for 2011 donations, which can be found here:-
http://chforum.info/php/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=4002

Kerren/JR - I've moved your posts into that new topic, so's there all in the same place. Thanks so much to you both, and to the other members, who've so kindly donated so far.
