Just in case no one knows?

If you like/use 'PayPal', you can hit the 'donate' button here on the board, and set-up a *recurring* monthly donation of *ANY* amount for as long (forever), or as little (2 months) as you like.

Being on a fixed income, but wanting to help the board as I can, I figured out how much would be painless for me, and set it up (super easy) as a recurring donation.

My thinking/hope is, while my donation is tiny by itself, if 10, 50, 100 people did the same thing - it could be a big help here. PayPal accepts totally random amounts, so a person could do something like $3.49 per month (or whatever), plus you can of course stop it at any time.

Anyhow - just a thought that I learned during donation week.

It is a good idea Peter, and I hope more will consider it. I thought about doing it that way, but in the end I just pony up the first of each month as that's when I get my allowance from Mrs. Retired_Guy...... Maybe I should ask her for a raise? On the other hand, I do know her credit card number...................

But the message is the same: A small amount each month regularly given will give Superguy some assurance that he doesn't have to come up with all the bucks himself. ...and I think that's a good thing. One-time gifts are good things too. Maybe a few of those and he could take Mrs. Superguy out to dinner?

In case someone misunderstands your humor:

Just to be clear, no money donated to ApneaBoard goes toward anything personal for SuperSleeper or his family. It goes directly to the upkeep of the forum and website.
