A Christmas appeal to our users and readers for donation pledges to help keep libcom.org running and improving!
Last Christmas, we asked for your time. This Christmas, we are asking for your money!
As you will probably be aware, libcom is funded overwhelmingly by donations.
The bulk of our costs are covered by the membership dues of our admins, with regular donations from a couple of lovely site users.
However, as our traffic has continued to increase our hosting costs have done as well, so that our incomings are no longer matching our outgoings and we are currently running a shortfall of around £40 per month. While we have some funds remaining from past fundraisers, these will eventually be exhausted if we don't get new donors.
Also we would like to upgrade our servers to get the site faster, as well as do things like publicity and some print publishing, all of which will cost money.
So if you use libcom, and appreciate the work we do, please visit our donate page here and slip us some cash. Please post below to say how much you are pledging. If you could make a regular donation that would be particularly great, as it would mean we might not have to do future appeals like this! You can do these via PayPal, or e-mail us for standing order details.
If you don't have any spare money, visit our help out page for other ways you can help make the site a better place for our users.
A Merry Christmas and happy New Year all our users (except the Telegraph journalists) from all of us at libcom.org!
