Thank you MindDrift.  Every little bit makes a difference.  I made a donation shortly after I joined the site.  Like you it was a small amount.  I really wanted to donate a lot more because of the valuable information and support that this site free of charge.

 

Which reminds me that I was very disappointed when I realised, after making my donation, that I hadn't taken the exchange rate into account.  I've made a lot of online monetary transactions since then and I think my donation experience taught me to be aware of the exchange rate. 😊

So close to the end!!!

We can't help the exchange rate. A smaller fee would be extracted by the bank if you want to make an account to account transfer. Please contact me if you want to do this, rather than going through PayPal.
