The Rebel Website needs your help!
Each month, I spend over US$1,000 and hundreds of unpaid hours to provide this feisty Aussie site to 150,000 to 200,000 unique readers from around the world. This is only possible for as long as my readers help me wear the costs because I cannot financially burden my family with the expenses of my 'hobby', while spending 80-100 hours per week on it instead of pursuing my 200K per annum career as an IT executive.
Right now, I am still short by US$913 to cover the next round of hosting and software licence fees due on 20 March.
I've started this month's fundraiser a bit earlier than usual because I'm worried about the FCC takeover of the Internet. I'm making preparations to move the Rebel Website off-shore, out of reach of the FCC. That means I need to raise the required funds at least one week before the monthly renewal date, 20 March, i.e. prior to 13 March. Otherwise, I'm forced to leave it for one month later which, given the developments in the Ukraine and the Mideast, might already be too late.
If every visitor reading this message gave as little as US$10 I could end my monthly fundraiser in less than 5 minutes. In reality though, the bulk of my contributions is made up of US$50, US$100 and US$200 donations from a small group of loyal supporters.
So if you are a regular reader and haven't given recently, please do so now, using the donation link at the bottom of my newsletter or the donation form below the boxing kangaroo on the right sidebar of the homepage. A big thank-you to everyone who has already contributed and made it possible for the Rebel Website to survive for over 9 years so far.
