You are reading this because we NEED donations!! Please read the bottom of this page.
well, it looks like we need to buy a a new server. Im hoping everyone can donate a one time contribution fee so we can keep our beloved DigiScrapDepot.com running.
Please go here to donate if you find it in your hearts or your just a plain addict who like the rest of us sit down with their morning coffee and look at the freebies everyday. That cozy feeling we get is called quality of life. I love to hear your stories on how much you love to see everyones work here. And we are all DigiScrapDepot.com addicts.
Thank you EVERYBODY out there, you are what keeps us volunteering our time to keep this website running. This website really needs your donation to keep it going. I promise i will never beg for money again. -well maybe this time next year we are 3x as large!! awesome.
Everyone has been so gracious to leave beautiful comments here in the Forum today its been about 400 people have read that the server was down. The so many emails from all of our loyal visitors who tell me they need the site back up again. We are counting on you to help.
Please go to the blog here to donate to the Keep DigiScrapDepot Running Fund. Please let your teammates and colleagues know we are running this donation fund to keep the site up.
You will not need to sign up for a PayPal account to donate.
- USDFor those who can only donate with Euro
Even though the NEW server is running we have not met our goal of getting enough funds to pay for through the rest of the year. When we meet that goal, then we will be able to take down the donation request buttons.
It was costing me and my husband 8 dollars per month when we opened in May, 2007 to pay for the old server. The new one we got is 250 dollars a month. (dedicated server, which has actual bandwidth. Everyone knows that DigiScrapDepot hosts primarily images. Im sure everyone here can agree that speed and images do not mix. Everyone will appreciate the speed at which each page will now load. Have you seen lightning?
This server will be able to cope with the 150,000 visitors and 2 Million page views a month and the 6000 visitors we get a day. The server is paid for month by month. Which means.... If i don't receive your donation, we will be paying privately.
I will keep the donation box open until we have enough to cover 1 year. By that time i hope the google ads will cover the cost.
