Running Costs

It is that time of the year again, where we ask for you help in covering the ongoing costs of keeping this site running and ad-free. The last time we ran a donation drive was in 2014 and raised enough to get us through until now. The more we can buy up front, the more we insulate ourselves from price hikes.

Hosting costs have increased significantly over the last 2 years and it costs $167.88 per year for hosting now, or $287.64 for 3 years if we can raise the extra $120 to cover a much cheaper 3 year period. The other costs include $19.99 per year for the domain and $29.30 per year for the chat box.

Total required for a year: $217.17
Total required for 3 years: $435.51 (which equates essentially to 1 year for free)

There is a donate link on the home page underneath the stats, to donate via paypal. Or you can use this link:


Any support you can offer is greatly appreciated and even the smallest amounts accumulate and help enormously. The Chamber makes no profit from these donation drives and every cent raised is spent on running costs. Everything else on the site is a labor of love.

Without asking for donations, the only other options are to sell advertising space or let it go under. So we humbly ask for your generosity in keeping this site going.


Your help is greatly appreciated.

So glad to contribute to the continuation of such a great site.  I have enjoyed myself immensely reading the stories of the writers on this site.  Valentchamber even gave me the opportunity to express myself with my own stories.  This site is a national treasure. 

God's continued blessings upon your work as He wills it is my prayer.

Hi Jacci, would you mind advising me of the email address to donate on Paypal as the link says I've logged out of paypal but I'm definitely logged in.  It maybe that I'm a few months late (sorry) - still happy to contribute.

Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
