Donation update: looking to get back into the black
Release Date: 05 Dec 11
Category: General Announcement
HASA depends on donations to meet hosting costs. At the time of writing, our account is at -$563, after the December bill. Please help us finish the year in the black!
We currently have six Monthly subscribers who together donate $40 every month to HASA. We also have two Annual subscribers who together donate $30 per year. Together, these regular donations provide $510 towards hosting every year, and cover 28%, just over 1/4, of HASA's annual bill.
Think of that! It takes just 8 people donating a few dollars every month or every year to cover more than a quarter of the site costs.
HASA is in its tenth year of providing ad-free, fee-free JRRT fanfiction that is owned and operated by the fandom, not corporate interests. Your contact information is not for sale to marketeers. There are no tests to take to join, all genres, characters, ratings and story lengths are welcome, and we get hundreds of readers a day.
Currently, our account is at -$548. If you are one of our regular visitors, please consider setting up a subscription. $5 = one day of hosting. Or, if you cannot commit to a regular donation, give something just in December as a festive gift to all your fellow readers and authors here at HASA. Please see message in the HASA Christmas Cards forum, "Put HASA in the black for Christmas!" Give something just in December as a festive gift to all your fellow readers and authors here at HASA.
Economic times are tough, but every little bit helps. If you can't spare money, then please give something just as valuable – your time. There are stories that need reviews, a story comment can really make an author's day, we have forums for discussing any topic and of course you can post your own works for the enjoyment of everyone.
Thanks for enjoying HASA!
