We're nearing our third anniversary, guys and gals. Our server has been bugging us by phone and by e-mail to renew. It's not exactly cheap. So any contribution is welcome. Even as little as $5.00 per member will help - oh and for our European friends, we do accept euros - especially at the current exchange rate! super grin

So, if you want to contribute, please pledge it here, or send a PM to Administrator, AvenueViet or LadyDragon, or e-mail us at AvenueViet@AvenueViet.com, Administrator@AvenueViet.com or AvenueViet@yahoo.com.

E-mails have also been sent to you all, via the automated list of users.

Hope to hear from you!

The Admin Group

A very very big thank you for the people who responded so quickly to our Fund Raising call. Especially prompt were Seed, Minisinoo, Pols, XP, Mimosa and Janine. love

A special thanks is due to Max, who originally put out the funds for the server subscription.

Actually I got a check from Seed this morning. A check so generous that I sent two thirds of the amount back, it was much too much for a single member.

I'd like to make it clear, we are not trying to make money out of the site. We are trying to keep it afloat, and to build a sense of community (like we did years ago when we all pitched in to send a present to our-then youngest member when she was in hospital) - which is why a small amount from each of our active members means a lot to the whole site.

So - please keep it coming. Thanks to the people who made a pledge or contributed. The others, hope to hear from you. Very Happy

Fund-Raising Operation was successful. Yay! clap

Thanks to your generosity, we now are assured of Internet service to AvenueViet for the next two years.

Special thanks to our most generous contributors, Seed, Mimosa and Minisinoo and to our "banker", Max. Big thanks also to the "small" contributors who sent in what they could afford or what they thought this community was worth to them.

People who continued posting regularly are also assured of our appreciation.

This is all about building a sense of community, solidarity and friendship on-line and sometimes in RL too, since some of us have become good friends outside the web. hug

This very satisfying result is a sign of the success of this site, small as it is, and for that, our gratitude goes to each and everyone of you. Thank you again. Hearts

It's wonderful to hear that! This forum was called "An on-line community" when it first started. So glad to see that it still IS a community, and that we'll be able to go on chatting on very diverses subjects for two more years. ten

A general big hug to all!

I have even better news: Thanks to recently received contributions, we now have more money than we paid out for the server. Yay! very happy

Since the goal is not for the Admins to make money out of the site, the extra money will be held in trust against next time we have to renew the server subscription.

Once again, thank you a million, one and all. Let me borrow Janine's cool smilie for a collective hug.
