Dear friends!

Thank you very much for your support.

However, we kindly have a question to all of you.

Do not donate less than $ 1 via PayPal, because almost everything PayPal gets and nothing (or a few cents) comes to us. PayPal charges $ 0.30 (or equivalent in any other currency) for each deposit plus 2.9% of the amount paid. Please, make a reasonable donate.

Remember also about sending a small donation in April too, please.
Thank’s again.
