Another Triple Digit Donation rolled in Today!

The Diner PayPal Warchest is pretty close to paying for the Diner Server & Soundcloud for the next year  :icon_sunny:

Now, if we can get these things flowing in at 100/mo instead of 1/mo, a SUN  :icon_sunny: stead will be BORN!

Only 99 to go!  ::)

We are now up to close to 4K/day page views, so it is not completely out of the realm of possibility.  This is double what we had a month ago or so.

NO ADS will be up on the Diner for the next year!  We will do this thing via the GIFT ECONOMY!  :icon_sunny:

IT AIN'T OVAH TILL THE FAT LADY SINGS!



NEVER QUIT, NEVER SAY DIE UNTIL YOU ARE WELL AND TRULY DEAD!

MEGA DONATION HITS THE DINER!!!
« Reply #16 on: March 18, 2015, 10:24:19 PM »

The Diner just received its largest Donation EVAH!  :icon_sunny:  Still Higher Triple Digits than the first few Triple Digit Donations!  Still have not hit a 4 Digit Donation yet, but YOU could be the FIRST!  Pony Up!  LOL.

I will pray tonight for a 7 Digit Donation. LOL.

The Diner PayPal Warchest GROWS, and the Diner will remain AD FREE and Subscription FREE now for at least the next year.

The Donor as usual will remain Anonymous unless he/she chooses to reveal him/herself.  However, I will HINT that this Donor was not a complete Lurker like the prior big donations.  This is somebody who has contributed to the Diner in some form.

Our BIG THANKS to the Mystery Donor!

SUN Donation Button Goes LIVE
« Reply #18 on: March 25, 2015, 06:59:13 PM »
At long last, thanks to the hard work of Gypsy Mama, the Donation Button on the SUN  :icon_sunny: Website is now Active and hooked to PayPal, and PayPal is correctly hooked to the SUN  :icon_sunny: Bank Account.

Donations made to the SUN  :icon_sunny: Foundation are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Now we wait for a 7 Digit Donation from Nick Hanauer.  LOL.

Seriously, every little bit helps as we need to get some good Legal advice and perhaps some professional help on Grant writing.

Next Up: Crowd Funding Ideas!

Suggestions Welcome.

This concept that you're pitching here RE, is it similar to an Amish community
type structure for living ?
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

No, Amish communities are basically 19th Century Nuclear Family farming communities.  SUN  :icon_sunny: communities are trying to integrate many more forms of food production including Permaculture, Hydroponics, Aquaculture and Environmentally Controlled Grow Domes.

Social and Goobermint organization can vary from community to community, that is not specifically defined.  Most of the SUN  :icon_sunny:  principals seem to favor a more communal/tribal organization, but that is not written in stone and every community can set this up with their own principles.

The main thing is developing self-sufficiency and resilience in the face of climate change and industrial civilization collapse.  We don't reject technology like the Amish do.  We try to use technology and knowledge appropriately with a Do No Harm sort of outlook.

Speaking of Monetization and Pay Walls, BIG TRIPLE DIGIT DONATION just rolled in from one of our Lurkers.  :icon_sunny:

It is Bill Paying time for the Diner 2016 volume, so a few matching contributions at this time would be nice.

Much thanks to the Mystery Donor, you know who you are.  :emthup: :icon_sunny:
