Full Article Attached Help Keep MozillaZine in Business

It's time to bail out MozillaZine again! If you think MozillaZine is a valuable community resource, please consider donating to us. While other organisations looking for donations may be happy to accept time, equipment or expertise, we're looking for cold hard cash.

If you donate to MozillaZine, you will help to ensure that we can continue to provide the Mozilla community with up-to-the-minute news, first class forums and informative developer weblogs. If you don't donate to MozillaZine, the Mozilla community could just be left with bug counts and bad grammar.

Our preferred way of receiving donations is via PayPal. Use one of the buttons that appear on each page. Think big numbers. If you prefer to receive something tangible for your cash, there's also our CafePress.com store but that doesn't make us nearly as much money.

Thank you.

CafePress is pretty bad in terms of margins. While they certainly deserve the lion's share of any sale, since they are doing all the work, a base price of $14 for a T-Shirt just won't cut it. Plus their quality isn't *that* great. We've had some experience with them for fund raising and it turned out to be a losing proposition. I also know someone who has ordered 100 mugs for his event for resale. Their base price on the mug was so steep that the market wouldn't carry it and he ended up promoting his event, but losing quite a bit of his *mug investment*.
