I just wanted to post this message to everyone so you can live free of the fear of lack of money. I wrote this to an admin to try to help them out, but I'll leave their name anonymous as it isn't necessary to state it. They were concerned about money and I wrote this letter to help them out. I think it could benefit other people who are running a website and maybe other admins from this website could also benefit from reading this. As always, live in love, don't worry about money or survival. The cosmos will take care of you. Trust the cosmos.
You are not the only ones who give to the many for free and to ask a pauper to remove a DONATION link, not a pay for services link like so many are trying to post on here, is not fair to me. Think with your heart and know that you can manifest money if you so choose. You'll never be in lack, as all is in abundance. Just do what I do and open the ability up for the cosmos to send you the money and experiences that you need to experience. If you open up different avenues for the cosmos to bring you money, then you'll have money coming in.
I never received anything from that button and taking it down will not help you guys get more donations. Whoever is meant to get a donation, will get one. If someone likes how I helped them, they'd donate to me if they have the ability to, but wouldn't think to donate to the site. If they like the site, then they will donate to the site so it can succeed as well.
Let me give you some ideas on how to cut out the money issues you're having. Instead of using Vent, use C3. C3 is a free gaming chat client and can do much more than Vent can. You can get that here: http://www.downloadc3.com
As for the flash chat thing, you'll want to find a free chat script. Look for one that's open source. Open source is free, plus you can modify the code to your liking. Its all about people helping people so you don't have to pay some corporation for proprietary crap. Never pay for software or scrips. I don't.
I help everyone for free as I operate out of love, not survival. I live from my heart and I only open avenues for the cosmos to bring me what I need. I do my part so that I can be helped and help others and I never demand that someone pays me. The money control system is on the outs now, so this is why you are feeling the squeeze when it comes to finances. I've been a web developer for many years and I've never once paid for anything I've used or made something with. You can do that easily as well. As you're using a Drupal website, you can easily find modules for it as its open source too. So, yes, keep the options for donations open, but please don't worry about who will donate or how they will. Leave that to the cosmos.
I'll post this in the ascension forum as well so that others may be able to help their selves in trusting the cosmos to bring them what they need instead of operating from fear. If you need help with any suggestions on free stuff to replace the parts of the site that cost money, just let me know. Also, I don't know how much you pay for hosting fees, but you can get an account with Host Gator and they have the lowest prices out there and run some major sites as well. They can easily handle your site.
I just wanted to add that when I am able to, I'll help lightworkers.org by giving a donation or two when I can. I just got to the point that I'm bringing in enough money to easily live off of, so I'll be able to help you guys out soon enough, but please know that we REALLY do need to operate from our hearts instead of from our minds. Don't worry about survival. Besides, if you wind up going down at some point, then that's what was meant to happen. If you're meant to stay around, then the cosmos will help you stay around as well. personally, with all the help its bringing to the world, I doubt LW.org will be going anywhere any time soon.
