Animeblogger Donation Drive


Hayate is crying… You wouldn’t say no to her, would you?

Great, it seems that Animeblogger is in the red recently… Advertising revenue hasn’t been enough to keep up with the massive costs of running this place, so some donation money is really needed to help support.

The goals for this donation drive are USD1700 and USD2300 to firstly cover taxes and current costs, and secondly, get better hardware and servers. In total, USD4000. It’s really a lot of money, so I hope that everyone out there will help chip in a little.

Well, I guess those of you who are interested would want to know how to donate. There are two main ways. First one is Paypal. This should be simple to anyone who has used it before. Most of the animebloggers should have a set of AB links (mine are on the right), one of which should be for donations. Just use that link. The other method would be to buy Animeblogger merchandise. Remember the mascot competition sometime back? Think along the lines of merchandise with the winning mascots on them. Cute stuff…

Well, bottom line is, AB.net needs money. Please don’t be evil and not donate. I’m sure that if all of AB’s readers gave a dollar each, we’ll have more than enough.

EDIT : Ok, I got the amount of money required wrong. It’s not USD 1700 and USD 2300. It’s USD 1600 and USD 600. Sorry for the erorr…

  1. Hi dude yay for the awesome post. Just to let you know.. it’s not an extra $2200 on top… the $2200 is the second goal. So in total we are going for $2200 with the first goal being to pay for the current servers ($1600). Then to pay for the extra server for three months which is another $600.

    Actually $1600 is the minimum goal to cover taxes plus three months hosting at our current levels, then an additional $600 brings it up to $2200 total to let us add another dedicated server. :)

    Oh, and you forgot to link the donations page. ^_^

  3. Oops, guess I misunderstood you on the amount, Maesro… That’s a lot of money to displace @_@

    And well, I assumed the picture link at the side was working, but maybe a text link is better after all…
