    Default A reminder: please don't forget to donate to the Forum

    Hello All,

    I wanted to make an attempt at a group donation effort for Bill. I know most of us can't afford what we would like to give, but most of us can make some sacrifice somewhere to free up funds for donation. The image of Bill sleeping in his car with the engine running to stay warm absolutely breaks my heart. Bill has been instrumental not only in bringing important information into our lives, but also has become a hero of sorts to many of us.

    So I propose this:

    I can afford to send $100 and will be doing so shortly. For each person who can match my donation, I will add another $10 (I hope I know what I'm getting myself into) for up to $200 total. I'll make my own lunch this month =P.

    Please help me help Bill. He's obviously not going to ask for it, nor should he have to. I have been derelict in doing what I can, however today I'm changing that fact.

    To Bill. should you find yourself in financial problems, Then add a donate button on this site. You'll find that your financial problems will get resolved very quickly. Maybe you can buy a new hat too?
    Regardless whether you want to or not, it's only fair. I owe you and Kerry big time. it would be my pleasure to help you out. in fact I insist....

    Received notice of a $100 donation by an anonymous donor. So that's +1. Thank you [anonymous]!

    Brilliant

    Quote Posted by Nate (here)
    As far as I can tell, the only link to donate is on the main page thousands of words down. Is this correct? I would like to suggest that a little donate link be made more easily accessible. This would not be selfish IMO, as selfish would be to have advertisements all over the site. I have sent a PM to Bill requesting this. Also, if there was a way to express how you would like your donation to be used (for example: Hotel/server costs fund for Bill, thank you fund for the mods, hat cleaning service, etc), all the better.

    Are the girls (and whatever guys want to) supposed to bid for the right to undress him? Just asking.

    Good Idea Inelia. We have listeners from all over the galaxy. Maybye the kids on a birthdayparty could rip off his

    cloths. Could make a buck on that. This could be of interest for many different groups. He is pretty well known all over the

    galaxy so I think there will be bidders enough. Many ideas erupts just now. We may think this over. Love and carrots

    I don't know if that would be appropriate, but I have heard that Bill has training as a party piñata.
