Remember to support this free source

Post by dwickenh » Thu Nov 08, 2018 10:02 am

I just wanted to remind everyone that this free source requires extensive work from a number of people(not me).

I am not as consistent as I could be, but remembered today to make a contribution.

You've donated $25.00 USD to
paypal@gostynska.com

It might be a good time to think about all of the hard work from the people running this website.

Best to all,

Dan

Happy to donate- paying/donating means collecting my personal info is not the payment.

I cannot thank Bogleheads enough for the amount of wisdom I have received here, financial and otherwise. From the most kind-hearted to some very sarcastic, all are united on this wonderful forum.

It look is like PayPal and mailing a check are your options.
