Donations

The NZMeccano site now receives over 2 million hits per month, from tens of thousands of different people. You're one of these, so thank you!

We were always at the limit of our cheap hosting provider, and since we got visited by some unfriendly types trying to scrape the entire site for whatever reason, we've had to upgrade to a much more capable host. Sadly, this host is much more expensive, by around US$400 a year.

I'm determined to keep this site free to access, available as much as possible, and free from adverts. For this reason, it has been suggested that I install a button to allow people to donate towards these annual costs. This box appears once a year to accept donations, and disappears when the year's total has been received.

The button below lets you donate US$10 from your Paypal account or credit card. I suppose you could donate more than once if you felt strongly that this wasn't enough. Please note that the entire site is freely available whether you choose to donate or not.
