Er, yeah, I got some sort of error just now too, but I think it happened after the donation had gone through. Could you check just to make sure? []

DONATION CHALLENGE ALERT!!!!
For every citizen who donates before the end of June, I would like to add $5.00 to my donation for July. I know one can buy a money order at the post office for 95 cents US and send a little something. How about all you sentimental types who are posting in the MT history thread popping out to the post, giving your comfy chair a short rest in the next three days, and letting White Gold Wielder know we appreciate his excellent site?

I can't find the address or form that I know I have seen like a thousand times and now that I want it, I can't find it [] Can someone link me to the address to send in the donation.


E:Never mind!!!!

E2:One question WGW. Are you still not taking personal checks?

I sent a post office money order today. I kept all the receipts just in case I filled out the 'pay to' part wrong (or should not have filled out at all)...

EowynatHeart: Yes, I cannot accept personal checks. I don't have a checking account under the name White Gold Wielder, so it could get a bit sticky. []

It's really not necessary 99% of the time. Wrapping a few bills in a colorful magazine page is all it takes to make sure cash gets to me. I have never had anyone's donation get stolen.

Anyway, here's a good tip I wanted to share with every who has donated. If you're going to wrap cash in a piece of paper, don't wrap it so tightly that is has the size and shape of the money. If someone held it up to the light, it would be obvious that it was wrapped cash. Just fold the paper like you would a letter and let the money rest loosely inside. []

I donated, Celebrían-but I added $5.00 more than I had originally intended to donate this month, to cover your challenge amount myself. If that makes any sense. []

(Basically, I'm trying to save Cele 5 bucks, without depriving WGW of the money.) []

Action! Fantastic! ONLY TODAY, JUNE 30, IS LEFT ON MY DONATION CHALLENGE. POSTMARK COUNTS!

Thanks to all who are responding to encourage White Gold Wielder, our good Steward.

Gna, your last post doesn't make sense to me, so I am choosing to [mwahaha] disregard it [/mwahaha].

Yay! Thanks to all those who responded, EaH, KingRichard, AranelCharis, WanderingTuor, Gna, and the regulars, Freya, Roxy, and irregulars, Éomer and Lostfiniel and the mysterious others. I look forward to the official report from WGW soon!

I'll be dedicating my donation in memory of my Grandmother, who taught grades 1-8 in a one-room schoolhouse, introduced me to the National Geographic, and shared her love of reading to the end of her life.

Well, everything has been updated and June turned out to be a smashing month. 12 donations!

Thanks to everyone who took the time and effort to send a little of your hard-earned money to support Minas Tirith.

We have been getting closer and closer each month to our bandwidth limit and I may soon have to pay a bit more per month for an increase. That's why I really can't say enough to thank you for taking the burden off of me with such generousity.

Celebrían: As I said, 6 of these 12 were already here before you made your challenge. I'm touched you want to make your donation in the name of your Grandmother, but I don't want to take advantage of your pledge. Don't go crazy and send me all your beer money! []

White Gold Wielder, the money order is in the mail. You should have it by Orgilion.

'Tis a small gift for a oldbie friend,
We're not by any means near journey's end.
Herein is Community of the Fourth Age.
With special finesse and decisions sage
We all benefit from our Steward's avocation;
I send with grateful heart a gift
after Mr. Squirrel's vacation.

Donation icons updated!

Thanks to everyone who took up Celebrían's challenge, but a special thanks to Celebrían herself. The challenge was unheralded, but not unwelcome! It took a lot of guts to offer $5 for each donation of the month. It was a hefty sum and has made the coffers of Minas Tirith unusually heavy. Woohoo!
