Default WE DID IT! Turbobricks Fund Drive! 2017 - Get your contributor status!

Just about 2 years ago we had an amazing turn out for the fund raiser. We were able to stretch out our funding well beyond what was expected. Over the last few months we've been supplementing the costs with some raffles and a bit out of pocket as well. Its time again to replenish our fund bucket so we can continue being self sustaining!

As you know, we remain user funded by contributions rather than advertisement or sponsorship. I would like to raise $3000 by the end of the month to cover our expenses for the next year

I know that sounds like a lot to come up with but i'm confident we can do this together and keep our grassroots community self sufficient. So many of us are passionate about our online family and are willing to chip in whatever is necessary, I'm hoping we can encourage many new contributors to donate this round as well. Here are some updated 2017 stats for you:
  • If everyone who has over 1,000 posts chipped in $10 we would have: $8,670
  • If everyone over 10,000 posts doubled down and chipped in $20 we would have an additional: $2,000
  • If everyone over 100 posts thats currently not a contributor gave just $5 we would have $10,375 more!

Donate here: http://www.turbobricks.com/donate.php

Thanks guys. I know we can do it!

You can add a "note" in the paypal screen... Its not a big deal since i can usually find people by their email address. If I miss upgrading someones account just reply to my thank-you-note.

Yeah, I gave $25. I wasn't able to add my name but I'll hit you back later.

Thanks again for the service you guys provide. The fact that you guys only ask for money every few years is awesome.

edit- didn't get an email. That made me check my info here. Had an email address in there I haven't used in at least 10 years. No wonder I didn't get any PM notification e-mails.
