MozillaZine

Full Article Attached Help Keep MozillaZine in Business

Sunday February 16th, 2003

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.

I have already made my monetary contribution, but i still have a suggestion. There are people here asking exactly what the money's going towards. It would be nice if you just posted your expenses and money reserves on-line. This is what the AbiWord project does, way down at the end of the AbiWord Weekly News: <http://www.abisource.com/…on/news/2003/awn130.phtml> . That way, people can know when money is needed, they know how much is needed, and they also know that it's not being wasted on frivolous expenses.

There's been a lot of whining here about asking readers for donations. Please be aware that many of us are quite happy liviing without annoying ads and that we don't mind being asked to caugh up a little money once a year.

One last thing, those tote bags in the MozillaZine store are very high quality and the colors of the MozillaZine logo are beautiful. (And the design is on both sides of the bag.) I love mine. I'm even using it today. MozillaZine gets a lot more money if you just donate directly, but if you need a nice tote bag, go for it!
