The Cauldron's server is expensive and requires monthly payments. Please become a Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor if you can. Donations are needed every month. Without member support, we can't afford the server.

ANNUAL DONATION DRIVE INFO FOR 2008

GENERAL INFORMATION

We have had our donation drive in February in the past. We are moving it to January this year because LyricFox will be starting radiation treatments for her cancer in late January or early February and we do not want to be dealing with tracking donations and cancer treatments. Our annual web hosting bill for ecauldron.com (the main web site with our articles, reviews, newsletters, etc.) is due next month, so it is time for our annual Cauldron Donation Drive. If those of our members who can afford to contribute $5, $10, $20 or more in the next few weeks would do so, we'd probably have all the money needed. The Hosts usually donate $50 toward the fund, but given our medical bills, we may not be able to do so this year.

Don't worry, if we don't get enough donations, the main web site will not disappear. The Hosts will scrape up the money needed somehow, so there's no "if you don't donate the web site will disappear" nonsense some other sites have been known to do. We just appreciate all the help we can get as the Hosts are not rolling in money any more than you are and a large bill in one month would really work havoc -- even more than usual this year.

Donations can be accepted via PayPal or the Amazon Honor System (or even by money order). Paypal is slightly better than Amazon as they take a slightly smaller fee out of what is donated. If you want to be personally credited and thanked for your donation, be sure to use PayPal and mention your message board login name in the Comments box (if one appears -- as we have to encrypt the code to prevent spammers from getting the address, it probably will not) or send us a separate email from the same email address giving us your message board login name. (Amazon donations are anonymous so we can't email you our thanks). Note that donations to TC are not tax-deductible in the US and probably aren't elsewhere either.

HOW TO DONATE

You can use these donation links:

Donate Via PayPal
http://www.ecauldron.com/donatepaypal.php

Donate Via Amazon Honor System
http://www.amazon.com/paypage/P3903JRFVQVDN

Donate Via Money Order (No personal checks, please)
Email donations2008 AT (remove this part) ecauldron.com for a snail mail address
(Note this email address will not work after mid-February)

DONOR "BONUSES"

We have a few bonuses for individual donors (at least, for those who do not donate anonymously).

Supporter Level Donation (US$10.00 or more)

* Supporter extras on this message board. This will include a special "Cauldron Supporter" membership level which provides the following features:

Quote
All the special features of Full Membership PLUS the following:

* can view and post in the Cauldron Donors private board

Sponsor Level Donation (US$36.00 or more)

* Sponsor extras on this message board. This will include a special "Cauldron Sponsor" membership level which provides access to a few special board features:

Quote
All the special features of Full Membership PLUS the following:

* can view and post in the Cauldron Donors private board
* can edit/delete comments made to their member blog
* can add links directly to our link area
* can assign their own custom title
* can use more BBCodes (e.g. colors and fonts)

NOTE: The Cauldron Supporter and Cauldron Sponsor levels of membership are contingent on following TC rules. They can be lost (just like full membership) if you do not follow the rules.  Translation, no amount of money donated will make you immune to following the rules.

Finally, donations are NOT A REQUIREMENT. Don't feel bad if you cannot donate.

I've decided that more donors deserve "special notice" so I've revised the "Donor Bonuses" a bit. Cauldron Supporter (Full membership plus access to the Donor board) now kicks in with a $10 donation. Cauldron Sponsor (new name but all the extra benefits) still starts at $36.  Here is the material I changed in the main post:

I'm happy to announce that we have passed our minimum goal for 2008. This is the first time since 2006 that we've done so. I'd like to thank everyone who has donated so far for their help.
