Some of you may remember that last year we upgraded this message board to the New "UBB Threads" paid format in an effort to cut down on the amount of time Michael spends sorting though Spammers and Scammers trying to make their way onto the board. The members paid for this improved product. We raised the $385 in less than eight hours! UBB Threads has proven itself to be an excellent product.

Now, we are going to ask for your help one more time. We would like to purchase the "Lifetime Support" package that will help our webmaster, Michael, keep up with such a large board and membership. This is a one time purchase that will last. The total cost is $325.

This time we will be making the collections through Foster Parrots and any contributions will be tax deductible to the full extent of the law. It will not be possible to track the donations quickly so this year I am asking for as many members as possible to make a $10 donation through the Foster Parrots' donation button on the page linked below. We will stop donations as soon as we can verify the $325 dollars, any excess will be a donation to Foster Parrots. When you contribute, please write "Mytoos software" in the box provided to specify a project.

I would like to thank Marc for helping us with this and I would like to thank all of you because the members are what makes this message board but we still want the best product we can have! grin

Hi Charlie. Assuming you have enough to cover the $325, I would like the other half of my donation to go directly to Foster Parrots, if possible! Thanks! Knowing this board, I'm sure you will get more than enough in record time!

Thank you Annette! Yes, any extra will go directly to Foster Parrots. I am hoping this time for more members to make smaller contributions and this will give Foster Parrot's staff time to monitor the total. I used my personal PayPal account last time and it happened very fast, I sat right by it. PayPal was not very pleased to see me get all these contributions so fast. They though I was a scam! I spent a whole day letting them read Mytoos' posts and convincing them that the funds were, indeed, legitimate.

Hopefully, this method will work better and be tax deductible as well. As soon as Marc or Karen confirm that the $325 goal has been reached, I will make a post to suspend donations for Mytoos.

Everyone try to make a $10 donation if Mytoos has been helpful to you! Thanks. smile

Oh, it will help! Thank you very much. If you will notice, Mytoos has never crashed, to my knowledge. This has all to do with excellent administration (AKA Michael) and a superb product with full support at every level!

There may not be recognition for donations like last year so feel free posting your donations here. We all want to especially thank those people!!! smile

C'mon everyone. I know the economy sucks and times are tight, but I also know each of us has gotten way more than our $10.00 worth of education on this board. smile Go team, go!!
