Donations to our hoster fosshost.org

Post #1by onetwothree » 26.05.2021, 20:43

Hi.

As you may know hosting for our site is provided by a non-profit organization fosshost.org. The other day they have sent an email in which they ask for donaitions because their current operational and emergency costs are higher than income they gain.

Here is the email:
===================================
We need donations so that we can continue to build and grow

Your support is required to keep the lights on. Please dig deep, donate, share, tweet, promote and raise awareness of Fosshost, examples include Tweets, Blog Posts, Vodcasts (Video Podcasts), raising awareness of our support to your project at local, national and international conferences (both online and offline) and any other creative or imaginative efforts that would positively promote our service to the wider community, and most importantly, our sponsors.

Believe it or not, we do have nominal monthly operational costs and emergency costs, and currently, our financial income does not cover these costs, leaving us in a deficit every month. I can confidently tell you that Directors (including myself) are personally pledging personal funds to protect and save Fosshost. This is not scalable and again, another reason, we ask for you to seriously consider donating to Fosshost. If you have any ideas or suggestions on how we can fundraise or obtaing grants, please contact me directly.

We accept donations via PayPal. You can make your donation here. If you would like to make a wire/bank money transfer (we have accounts for accepting USD and GBP denominations) please contact me directly.

Thank you for taking the time to read this email and your support is most appreciated at this time.

Best,
Thomas Markey
Chief Executive & Founder
===================================

So dear community members if you can please donate. Otherwise if fosshost.org will be closed we will be forced to look for another hosting.

Calm down and read what onetwothree wrote again. The text of the email from Fosshost is between the two "===================================" lines.

There isn't supposed to be an email link. It's the text of an email sent to onetwothree from Fosshost.

So, all these useless chatters because no one simply replied to push on "here" as I have done?!?
Someone is kidding here!

The poster edited a spam link into it, so I deleted it and banned the poster. Actually the original text was just copied from the OP.
