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 store but that doesn't make us nearly as much money.

Thank you.

"It would be nice if you just posted your expenses and money reserves on-line."

Expenses are hosting (annual fee primarily based on data transfer) and, er, that's it. The domain is registered until 2007 so there's not much to worry about there. The most recent hosting bill (what we're asking the readers to cover now) is $990. I'm not sure how much is in the kitty right now but last night it was over $600. Before the donations appeal started it was about $18.

Obviously, the more money we get now, the longer it'll be until we have to do this again. And if we get tons and tons, we can think about making improvements to the site. And I can get that beach house in Rio. ;-)
