About once every six months or so, we humbly ask for a small donation to keep things running here at GCFL.net.
Wait! Before you run off to unsubscribe from the list thinking, "I thought they said this thing was free!!!" let me reassure you: GCFL IS, AND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN FREE! There is no obligation to pay for GCFL mailings.
It does cost money to run GCFL.net (just like everything else), but instead of peppering the mailings with advertisements everyday, we prefer to just ask for a small donation. If we do a good job, some people will be willing to donate a dollar or two, and if we keep our costs down, it will be enough.
Since 1996, we've been mailing good, clean funnies to GCFL members and they have always come through wonderfully, giving when they can.
We receive emails and letters nearly everyday from members saying how much they enjoy GCFL, and how it helps them start their day. It seems people from 12 to 101 (seriously!) enjoy our funnies, and we sure enjoy making GCFL what it is.
We only ask for one dollar because we feel it's not too much to ask, and just about everyone should be able to handle it. However, if you can't afford it, don't worry about it! We'll continue the best we can.
So, if you feel so inclined, please send your donation to:
Harvest, AL 35749
Send a dollar bill (or two) (yes, it's OK to send cash in the mail for this purpose), or if you want to, write checks to "GCFL". You can also use this PayPal link (www.paypal.com) if you prefer to use PayPal. Please use email address email@example.com. Remember PayPal charges 2.9% + 30 cents for each transaction, so maybe you PayPal people can send $1.34 to cover that cost? We leave that up to you.
Thanks for helping us keep GCFL alive and kicking!
