Donation Gift Packs

Hello everyone. As I mentioned in a recent post I hurt my arm really badly. It's worse than I initially thought. I don't know when I'll be able to go back to work, since my job is to type for my boss. I had a lot of unexpected big expenses in 2012, including emergency medical bills, medical equipment, and doctor visits that I needed to pay for out of pocket. Those bills are taken care of and I have enough to get by on, but things are going to be very tight.

I need a new computer. I'm not sure I can afford that, and I know I can't afford to do that and continue pay for the hosting costs related to this blog. (It's a blogspot page, so yes, it's free, but all of the content is hosted privately--and there is a lot of high res content, so I can't just switch to free plans.  Once my paid accounts on PB, Flickr and Mediafire go, so will all the freebies. That includes not only the resources but ALL of the livejournal/dreamwidth icons, all of the free graphics, and anything else that I have posted there over the years.)

I really love doing the blog, and it's important to me to keep as much of my content as possible free for everyone to use.

So, this is what I am going to do. I am looking to raise about $500 toward a new computer and/or $100 toward hosting costs.

In the next few days, I will be adding several more gift packs.

Anybody who donates any amount of money--even a dime--can choose to download ALL the gift packs I offer.  Just post a comment or leave your email address in the comment box on paypal and I will send you whatever ones you ask for.

Anybody who donates $5.00 or more can request a custom pack.

If you are on Livejournal or Dreamwidth, you can also request custom icons.
Anyone can request a custom site header or a wallpaper or other large graphic.

You can use the donate button in the sidebar.  You do not need a paypal account.

Thank you in advance; I really appreciate any help you can give.

More packs below.

Update: I'd like to thank the folks who've donated or offered to help host some of my content.  I'm still in need of donations.  I have about $14.50 (minus Paypal fees) and an offer from one of the blog's followers to host the resource zip files.  His space is limited, however, and I don't want it to be a problem as the blog grows, so I won't be hosting any of the older content from LJ (resources or graphics) there, and I probably won't put many of the lose resources up at all.

That means I still need to raise the money for Photobucket and/or Flickr.  So these offers will remain open until whenever I go back to work.


  1. Depending on how much you need, I could probably host content for you. I have several unused web servers, but I only have a few GB of space free right now. If you're interested, feel free to ask,

    1. Thanks Alan, I sent you an email a little while ago. We're in the middle of a blizzard, so if you reply and then don't hear back from me for a few days, I'll have lost power.
