2012 Server Fee

Recommended Posts

Posted Image


As many of you know, this site is paid for by the generous donations from our members.

It has never been, nor will it ever be, a REQUIREMENT for being a member of GALS. We understand there are those who are unable to financially contribute to our site and we certainly understand and appreciate that fact. We also KNOW whether someone is able to contribute financially or not, does not make them any more or any less of a valued member of GALS.

However, we have a lot of "newbies" who weren't around during the big "server crash" of April (?) '06. Some may recall that we had an emergency fund raiser to keep GALS up and running on our own designated server. At the risk of bringing back horrific memories -- I will mention to the newbies that the site was actually DOWN for 2 days! Posted Image

Although such growth is always exciting, converting to a designated server required a financial commitment. What started out as a free, fun way for a regular working gal to cope with her "addiction," now costs $3,000 annually just to house our wonderful gallery and forum!

I know money is tight, especially saving for Vegas ... heck, just making ends meet ... but the next time you find yourself salivating over the latest addition to the GALS gallery instead of doing laundry, I ask you to consider cleaning out the change under the sofa cushions and contributing to our general fund. Our next bill is due in March and we've got some ground to cover in order to collect $3,000. :nervous:

For those willing and able we have several ways to "help":

Option 1- PAYPAL: (One must have a paypal account established to use this option) Log into paypal. Click the "Send Money" tab. Put support@gerardbutlergals.com as the email address you're sending to, and donate the amount you want. (PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR SCREENNAME in the "notes" area)

There is a handy 'Donate' box on the left side of the Forum Home Page, too!

Option 2 - Paper Check By Snail Mail: Send a check, payable to GB GALS, to:

Susan Payette

P.O. Box 17915

Irvine, CA 92623-7915

In the memo section, please indicate "Support" (AND INCLUDE YOUR SCREENNAME)

Option 3 - Boutique Shopping: You can help support GBGALS by purchasing items through our market place (via the Boutique) Although the amount is nominal, as we always say, "Every penny helps." When you enter amazon via the GALS portal or purchase other items in the Boutique, GALS gets a small royalty for all sales.

I realize that I'm posting this message 4 months before the server fee is due, but for those of you have "have everything," perhaps you will consider telling loved ones to make a "support donation" in your behalf *coughBigMikeThisIsForYoucough* :p or maybe you'll manage to share a wee part of that hard-earned year-end bonus in order to feed your addiction. By starting the collection/donation process early, hopefully we won't be scrambling days before the bill is due, trying to make ends meet.

Regardless, :ty: to each and every one of you who have taken the time to read this post!

Just sent a donation via paypal, but had to make a change in my payment method and in doing that am fairly

certain my screen name note was not there--too late to cancel and fix. Don't really need recognition, but

thought I would mention it.

I sent mine on Jan. 4th but not sure if I noted it correctly since I didn't receive a confirmation email from GALS like I have in the past. So if you have one out there with no name on it from the 4th, it's probably mine. Sorry... :doh:

Thanks, Fris and to everyone that has donated! We're in crunch time!! Our server fee is due NEXT MONTH! I'll get with Admin to find out if we're even close (Personally, I suspect we're short compared to this time last year). In the meantime, I hope you'll join me in checking the sofa for change and hitting the Coinstar. :kisswink:

Typically, it's in excess of $3,000.

Just gave a bit more because I just realised my other donation was in US$ and not as much as I thought it was in £s!!

Come on you other gals..if we all give a little bit!
