We are about to switch over to the new software, and all this is quite expensive, so donations are indeed appreciated.  By the way, if anyone has donated but this is not reflected in your status, feel free to let me know.
sent you PM.

Friends,

Thanks so much to the three people who donated since I added the button. Every bit helps!

Between taking down the old version of the site and now (about 2.5 months), we didn't have a donate button. A kind person donated enough to keep us covered during that time.

The old site had a PayPal plugin which allowed us to show who donated (if they wished to be shown) and how much we had received against our monthly operating costs. I am looking to see if this new software has something similar.

Until then, please rest assured that we are not banking tons of money in donations which I in turn would pocket. LOL. Many times, I and Fr. George have covered costs of the site out of pocket during critical points of its 18 year history (gosh...18 years!) But thankfully, most of the time, you all have come through for us. Only a few times have we had a surplus, and when that happened, we used it to upgrade the infrastructure. So donate away, and rest assured that your donation help us directly, and is being used for the site only. No one is profiting off your donations :)

Thank you for your support and trust in us as we work to make the donation system more transparent.

Also, I can receive donations via check. Send me a private message and I will give you my home address.

I am also now on Venmo. I don't particularly like Venmo, as I think social sharing of payments is odd (glad it can be made private!), but people are there, so I am, too (helps that I have a 22 year-old stepdaughter). So if you want to Venmo me, it's @Anastasios-Hudson

Yours in Christ,
Anastasios

Friends,

As always, thanks for the donations received. They've been a bit less than previously, but still enough to cover our minimum costs due to a few "larger than expected" donations.

OCnet is "owned" by me, Anastasios Hudson, personally, and all donations go to my PayPal account (or if you write a check, to me personally, but I then use it for the site). I've never asked for more money than required, and I've only "paid myself" out of donations one time for tech work performed--work we would have had to pay someone else to do, and I was out of money and needed it to pay bills; thank God, I have not been in that situation ever since). Prior to that, I often covered the cost for the site myself out of pocket when donations didn't suffice, and performed tech work pro bono.

If we ever were to get any really "big" donation, I'd be happy to use it to expand the site beyond just a forum to make it more of a research center; but I've never had any serious interest (occasional fleeting interest, but no solid commitments). Anyone interested in financing the site in a major way to help us grow to that point is welcome to contact myself and Fr. George, who administers the site moderation-wise (while I keep it running technically).

But to those of you who faithfully donate $1, $5, $10, $25 regularly, and those of you who occasionally and exceptionally donate $50 or $100, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

To those of you reading the above post: why not donate $1? Don't think it will make a difference? It will! Let me paraphrase one of those cliches from every infomercial, web ad, and Facebook solicitation:

"If everyone reading this post were to donate just one dollar, we would have our expenses covered for ten years, and would be able to do literal miracles and bring about world peace!!"

Well, maybe not all that, but certainly we could take this site to the next level!

A.
